First Place

How many of ya'll are familiar with First Place? (It is a Christ centered "health" program using bible study to help you lose weight.) Our previous church offered classes and I participated for a session or two and lost the weight that I wanted to lose. (It was almost comical to sit in church on Sunday morning and watch the choir get smaller and smaller each week. Not from lack of participants but because the participants got smaller and smaller.)

Anyway, I got good results with the program but part of remaining successful with the program meant changing your lifestyle. And I have a problem with permanently changing my lifestyle sometimes. I mean, if I didn't like my lifestyle, it wouldn't be mine. (I realize there are obvious flaws in that train of thought. But it sounds good in my head.)

Last night, I was catching up on some publishing news at work (Elizabeth George has a new book coming out too! Woo Hoo!) and I discovered that First Place is revamping their program. It looks like they are addressing some things that I had issues with. (No, they are not changing the whole lifestyle thing. They still want me to eat healthy on a permanent basis. Sigh.)

So as I sit here this morning, eating my chocolate poptart and drinking my Big Red, I am considering participating again. To see if I can budge this winter fat that is hanging around my house. Because if I don't budge this winter fat, it will be winter again and I suspect the fat will invite it's cousins to my house to live as well. And although we seem to have an endless supply of chocolate poptarts and Big Red, trust me, no one will be happy if winter fat comes to live here permanently.

***Ick alert ahead***

Today is fetal pig day in The Boy's biology class. If you have a moment, please pray for The Boy and his queasy stomach as he delves into said fetal pig. Apparently he had no trouble skinning the pig, but today they get to dive below the surface. ick.

May you walk in peace this day, whatever adventure it may hold.

I REMEMBER that day in lab! I will pray for him right now. I thought I might lose it too. All I seem to talk about (but not do much)is losing weight. First Place originated at my church and I never have done it. I do like Weight Watchers, but the old WW, where you had to eat 2 proteins, 5 fruits and veggies, etc. You encourage me again! Love, Annette

Karen,
I understand and I know I have to lose weight, I will feel better and I know you will, I have never done First Plase but I would like to try it, I am a Lifetime Member and former Leader for Weight Watchers, so I know how to lose weight, but like you I need motivation... So let me know how it is going and lets see if nothing else if we can pray for one another and encourage each other, we can even be accountiable to each other, we do see each other at work... See you tomorrow...

I've heard of First Place, but never done it. It looks good though. I'll be anxious to see if you give it a try what you think.

Elizabeth George has a new book coming out!?!? Sigh...That's one thing I hate about being here no Christian books or music is available. What's it about? She's my all time favorite.
