It's All About New Beginnings

My Personal Process!

By Angela Willingham

2013-07-04

I saw a message on a friends FB page that this was going to be an interesting week.  They could feel it.  As I read it I knew that they were right.  This week was going to be a life changing week for many of us.  There were going to be answers to prayers we did not even know we had.  Issues that were long standing were going to be resolved and we would see ourselves in ways and places we had never seen ourselves before.  This week I saw my process through the eyes of God.  I saw what He has been doing over the last few years.  I saw myself not talking about what needed to be done, but actually addressing the issues in the way God would have me do it-relationally.  I saw the mistakes of others and could relate to them myself as mistakes I had also made and I could see my retraining and new understanding of how to deal with the very same issue.  I could understand and relate from both sides of the issue and then move forward to do what was right.  I have seen my gift of encouragement kick in like never before and not just to make people feel good, but because it was good and when it is necessary to address and issue in a loving way, I can do that also.  My next level required these changes and I am grateful that God has made them.  Understand it is not me, it is the process of becoming who I need to be to fulfill the purpose that He designed me for.  The process is not over.  The focus may change, but the process takes a life time.  As long as we live we are being changed.

 

 

Excited!

I am really excited about getting this weight off. Last night I swear I felt the Holy Spirit shaking up my body from the inside. I am down 7 lbs of my 30lb goal for the 60 days from my restart date on May 27. I will weigh in officially tomorrow morning. It should put me back to where I was when I stopped really using myfitnesspal. It feels really great.

 

60 Day Weight Loss Challenge

By Angela Willingham

2013-06-02

On Tuesday, May 28th I officially started my 60 Day Weight Loss Challenge.  What is it?  It is the opportunity for me to set some very specific goals for myself and work to achieve them.  I want to lose 30lbs and I want to work out at least 5 days a week.  I have tried before and quit, given up, lost focus.  I set it us as a challenge to give myself focus.  I announced it on my Facebook pages and on myfitnesspal account to allow others that I come in contact with to be a support to me in it.  On Saturday, July 27th my team and I will be blessed to go to the First Institutional Baptist Church for a Women's Expo.  For those that know me you know that this ministry originated at FIBC.  That is where God gave us the vision.  The scripture 2 Corinthians 5:17 came from Him.  Going back on the 27th will be like going home.  God has told me repeatedly that I am the face of this ministry.  What does that mean, it means I have to be fit mind, body and spirit.  When I think about all that He has done with and through me over the last 10 years to grow me and to change me I know He had and has a purpose and plan for me.  He worked on me on the inside first.  Even this morning He assured me of the plan.  I am the face and I will do this.  This first week I have worked out by walking or going to class for 6 days straight.  I have included another challenge which is to walk 1000 miles in the month of June 2013.  Yesterday I took 21,127 steps.  Per the 10000 step walking program that equates to almost 10 miles.  Wow!!!  I was just out being active and doing what I need to do.  I am excited about what God has already done in me, changing my attitudes and actions and I am excited about what is coming.  I am going back to First Institutional as a new woman.  A real woman.

 

Setbacks

By Angela Willingham

2013-02-02

Since Thanksgiving I have been on an eating plan that caused me to cut back on my carb intake.  Anyone that knows me knows that was a big deal.  I am a carb eater.  Give me some bread, soft rolls, potatoes, rice, pasta and sweets, but mostly bread and sweets and I call it done.  Since then I have probably only had bread on Christmas and the results have been tremendous.  I had lost almost 20 pounds.  I was not even tempted.  Then it happened.  I don't know what it was but all of a sudden last weekend I wanted everything that had not even been a temptation for all of those weeks before.  I succumbed to the temptation and went completely overboard. 

What did I learn from it?

I learned to plan my opportunities for going off my eating program.  I learned to get some things to have on hand so that I will not feel deprived.  I also have to learn how to be satisfied with a little and not to go back to what I would have done in the past.  I am grateful that I have some people in my corner that I can tell these things to and because they have already been there they can give me some really good counsel.

Setbacks will come, but what is important is what we do with those setbacks.  Do we give up on our plan and continue on that path or do we get up dust ourselves off and start again.  I chose to dust myself off and start again.  I am only 3 pounds away from my first 20 pound goal and I will make it in the next couple of weeks by getting back on my program.  Stay tuned.

 

 

Seeing The Physical

By Angela Willingham

Since Thanksgiving of 2012 I have lost almost 20 pounds.  When talking to a friend she said her clothes were becoming baggy.  I told her that had not happened to me yet.  I put on one of my favorite pants suits yesterday and I am afraid I was wrong.  It does not fit the way it use to.  There is a little sagging in the butt and it is very loose around the thighs, with some sagging in the crotch area.  Hooray... I can see it on the scale and in the clothes finally.  For so long I have been able to see it in the clothes slightly but never on the scale.
