June Challenge

Hi friends!
How are you?  I'm still fighting some virus/bug.  I have headaches, body aches, chills, upset stomach, and am so incredibly exhausted.

I haven't been eating much, and have therefore lost 1.4 pounds.  Happy about that, but looking forward to feeling normal/good/healthy!

I'm going to challenge myself in June.  I have a goal to lose 10 pounds this month.  I'm not sure if it's possible, but I'm going to try my darndest. 

I plan to drink A LOT.  Water, Talking Rain, the occasional pop.  I also plan to eat fruit and salad.  I found some calorie free, fat free salad dressing.  Yes, you read that right.  CALORIE FREE.

I've tried the ranch and the caesar.  The ranch tastes NOTHING like ranch.  It's kind of sweet.  Not bad, but definitely not ranch. The caesar is pretty good.  I haven't tried the Asian or Italian.  But it makes eating salad so much easier, because it doesn't  have to be dry.  

It's made out of natural stuff, too.
I am still struggling with eating out of boredom, stress, emotional distress, etc...  But, I am working on it.

I don't mean to get all preachy/religious, but for me personally, this is more than just a quest to lose weight.  It's a lesson in moderation.  I am waiting on a couple books that I ordered to get here.  


These books were recommended to me by two good friends.  Some of you  may remember Dawne; she was inspired by the Woman of Moderation series.  And a woman I know on Facebook who has lost 60 pounds with HCG and kept it off recommended the other two.

I'm excited to get to the bottom of my eating issues, and to learn to turn to Jesus for comfort.  He is supposed to be my best friend, after all, and is always there for me.  

So, my goal for June is a 10 pound weight loss.  I'm looking forward to this month and what I can accomplish!
