Weight Loss Wednesday

Here Goes

I am beginning something tonight
That I have avoided during the entire
4 years I have been blogging

Posting a photo of my whole self

Although I gained some weight during my adult years
I always had Mark to help keep me accountable
But since his passing 15 months ago
I have 'eaten myself under the table'
(as my pastor friend used to say)

6 months ago I hired a life coach
Who has been helping me in numerous ways
Emotionally, Spiritually and Physically
Although she has taught me so much
Regarding food choices
I clearly have not followed her advice

It is time for a change

Tonight I begin a new weekly series
Each Wednesday evening I will take a photo of myself
And journal how I have done 'health' wise during the past week
It is a way for me to stay accountable to myself
And you, my friends:)

So, my first photo is posted
Fairly sad commentary on my poor eating habits
A new day springs forth
 In the AM

I hope you will join me in my journey
Through encouragement
By sharing your own weight loss/health stories
Or even by sharing recipes or tips on living a healthy lifestyle

Looking forward to our times together

Considering It All Joy,


  1. You're such an inspiration, Cindy. Thanks for sharing this.


  2. You are beautiful and I will join you in your weight loss journey. I need to get active on a more routine basis and lose a few pounds too!

  3. Cindy, I am proud of your progress. I know this has been a difficult time. I can't even imagine. I am happy to read you have a life coach. Caring for yourself is so important right now. Because you are important. Sending love and hugs from Colorado, Tiff

  4. You can do this! Once you have a made up mind (and it seems you do), it's easier to stay the course.

  5. You are beautiful!! You can do this, Cindy. Make small changes not huge sweeping ones. I used to work with a nutritionist and her advice to everyone was write down everything you eat. Most of us don't realize how MUCH we eat because it is a little bit here and a little bit there.

    Blessings to you.

  6. I'm loving this. I am thinking of doing the same thing to follow your commitment and example. Not sure if I have the courage's such a struggle for me and I'm really dealing with issues of how I see myself.

    And I agree with the are beautiful!


Hi Friend, I read and cherish every single comment you leave! You bring Joy to my heart! Blessings, Cindy
