14 pounds is GREAT!! I gained quite a bit when Derek and I got married and I am still trying to lose that. It is a difficult thing to lose weight. Hang in there. I love the LiveStrong website. I use that every once in a while. Especially if I find myself slipping back and gaining weight again. it really brings things into perspective. I am praying for you!! :) I am late commenting but I just realized you posted for March and I missed it!! :D


14 lbs is great. I know that things are hard now but it is worth it! I find that I eat for same reasons as most of the ladies who posted here. Emotional eating with a side of lack of self control. I am here to tell you that all of it is worth it when you are eating for the glory of God and to take care of His temple. Great things happen like health problems clear up!You are also teaching your children by setting a good and healthy example. Not to mention the fact that you can buy smaller sizes when you shop for clothing! Be encouraged! Take it day by day. Everything is going to be ok-not easy but worth it in the end!

Thank you for your honesty Casey. I just read this to Larry. I shared with him how powerful it is to have you express your stuggles so openly, yet with great awareness of the power of God to help you get through them. I've had a bad month too. With prayer and new determination may we stive to please God with our daily decisions.

i love you so much,


Stick with it, Girl-- You are doing great! One day at a time.


Keep it up, Casey...your journey is a hard one! It's NOT easy to control cravings - food has ALWAYS been my weakness. And I'm someone who has been fairly athletic in my lifetime. Food can be addicting like anything else. But you inspire me! Just the fact that you CARE, and have lost 2 lbs, not gone backward is awesome. Even if you do go backward, don't beat yourself up. Just dust yourself off and determine to make little progresses to your goal. You can do it, girl!

Sweet Casey you are doing great and I know that you will succeed with your weight loss! Those that wish to sing always find a song!!! Here's a little help if you like to use it, when you feel like eating when it's not quite time, just read some scripture, you'll be amazed at how full you will feel!! luv ya bunches!


Praying for your sweet are fighting many a woman's battle. And it is SO worth it! I am glad you are not giving up!


2 pounds is better than GAINING pounds right?! I take my weight loss one day at a time. I have good days and bad days...days when I eat emotionally, even weeks when I simply can't get back on the wagon. I spent a month and a half at the same weight and only this week started losing again. Take heart that God has beaten this for you. You only have to trust Him. I also don't believe that eating "wrongly" is always bad. I've found that when I FEEL like I need to eat my emotions away, sometimes I just do. I talk to God about it. Get it out of my system and move on.

I knew a woman that used to go to Open Door that lost a lot of weight by eating whatever she wanted. She would eat cookies all day if that's what she wanted. She would just stop when she was full (Abellas).

I hope these thoughts are encouraging for you and that you are able to take things one day at a time in your weight loss journey!

This is another hard journey in your life...trying to eat healthy and all the things that go with that are to say the least a CHALLENGE! One day at a all day at a time! I too am an emotional eater, and over the past 100 weeks have found myself eating with every mood, finding comfort in chocolate & chips. I decided for myself in January that I want to live "healthy" as long as God will allow and thus I too began my journey. Don't beat yourself up, just get back on track and do this for you!! Love u girl


praying for you! 14 pounds is still awesome. I know you can do this!
