I just completed two weeks on Phase 1 of South Beach. I lost 7 pounds which I'm fairly happy with. To be honest, I'm surprised I didn't lose more in my second week (down 1.4 week 2). However, I lost 7 pounds in two weeks. Be happy with it Kara! :)
I faced so many temptations in the past 2 weeks and you know what? I faced them and conquered them. I rocked them. And do you know who I give the glory to? Not me. Not South Beach diet. But God. I give the glory to God for helping me face the temptation and stand up under it.
I Corinthians 10:13 says: The temptations in your life are no different from what other experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptations to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.
God is faithful and he kept his word to me these past 2 weeks. I have felt very strong. Stronger than I have felt in years. And I know why. I finally turned this over to God. And he is always good.
