The Plan

I have had people ask me lately "How are you losing weight?"...this got me to thinking that I have never really posted about what my plan is. I have talked about my plan in reference and I have said things I am changing /tweaking in it but never laid it all out.

So here it is...

  • First and foremost I know that I have many emotional issues that have brought me to the place I am now where food has been the 'thing' in my life that never let me down. Therefore I am leaning on the Lord Jesus to help me walk through healing during this journey. While spending time praying and listening to God the addiction will be broken. This part of the plan will bring me to the place I need to be spiritually.
  • Secondly, I eat anything I want!... as long as it is a whole and natural food and I don't exceed 1800 calories per day.
  • Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds, milk, yogurt, cheese and lean meats are all acceptable foods.
  • NO processed and packaged foods.
The only exception to the rules are #1 If I am at someones home then I make the best choice available to me. #2 On certain days of the year I have a planned treat day (the first one this year was on my birthday in March and the next one is in June for an ice cream date with my husband.).
  • The third and final part of the plan is to get moving 6 out of 7 days a week for a minimum of 30 minutes each time. Any kind of exercise is good as long as I am moving.
There it is...
simple eh!


  1. Your plan sounds like a great and healthy way to lose weight. You will continue to be successful, I'm sure!

  2. Great plan :)

    I too believe that only with Jesus' help will the addiction be broken...for good. It's hard...

    You're doing wonderful!!

    Yes...I am a perfectionist and a rebel...feel sorry for my parents yet...lol.

  3. I love simple! There's an award for you on my blog. I hope you'll accept it! It's a fun one!!!!

  4. Great! I've realized that for me to lose I need to work out 6 days a week in order to lose. You've done so great on the weightloss!!!

  5. This is such a wholesome and simple plan. Good for you!!! I too need to exercise consistently in order to move my weight and my minimum is also 30 minutes a day. Keep up the good work. You are an inspiration.

  6. Catching up a bit tonight and you're plan sounds great! I have also found that turning to Jesus with my emotional issues has helped me make great strides in my weight loss journey. I'm so grateful that he cares about even this little part of our life. :)

    You sound like you're learning new things and doing well. Have fun on your vacation!

  7. Great plan, Christine! :) I haven't tracked my calories as of yet, it would be interesting to see how much I am eating per day calorie wise...great job with the 6 days of exercise! You are doing great!

  8. I was just reading back on some of your older posts and you are really doing an amazing job!

    I've tried every single diet imaginable. Slim fast, diet pills, skipping meals... I've also battled with my weight my entire life.

    I found that the best and actually quickest way for me to lost weight is to do exactly what your plan is.

    Eat whole natural foods. Or at least try your best to. And be on a good spiritual level not only with God but with yourself.

    I cannot wait to follow a long with you!

  9. You are doing so great, great plan and great success! Keep it up!
