Seeing and Feeling a Difference

The minutes turn into hours, hours turn into days, days turn into weeks and weeks turn into months! Today is day 143 and I am making progress. People are able to see I am making progress on my goal in becoming healthier and to lose weight. As I stated in my earlier post ‘Getting So Much More Than Expected‘ only after I starting making an effort to lose weight with the help of our Heavenly Father (God) I was able to start on my journey! I put behind me all my doubts and my fears! Then with my trust in God I started doing something about it. I am now seeing those results.

I’ve been taking pictures to record the progress. Pictured below is what I looked like on October 3, 2014, then move forward to January 13, 2015.

102 Days
Oct. 2, 2014 to Jan. 13, 2015 – 102 Days of Eating Clean and Exercising

Yes I can feel and definitely notice the difference. Walking is getting to be easier for me too. When I first started walking my average pace for walking a mile recorded by MapMyWalk was 36 minutes and lots of heavy breathing. Today my average pace is 22 minutes and I am able to breath more normally ‘most of the walk’ (going up hills I start to breath more, but still much better then before) for the entire 30 plus minutes walk. There are days I am able to push that to 20 minutes per mile, but my total average is now 22 minutes. That is a huge improvement for me.

I would like to stay this again, this is all possible by putting my trust in God and by me doing something about it. We need to put forth the effort and only then will we see or get the rewards of labors.

We are not alone, we are never alone! God has given us people on this earth who are inspired and gifted to help us achieve our goals. All we need to do is reach and by making the effort we will find what we need to find.

Till next time I ask for you to examine your life, I mean really examine your life. What is it you are missing? What do you what to change? What is not making since? Once you find and identify what it is you want out of life make sure you write this down but do not stop there – go make an effort to make this happen. Remember, remember you are not alone. By making an effort and enrolling others in what you are doing you will make what it is you are after happen. Share with others what you want out of life. Most importantly, ask Heavenly Father for help!


  1. A picture is worth a thousand words-! Thanks! Have you noticed? You laugh now more than you did!!! Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

  2. Keep it up! I too have been trying to make changes, inspired by your efforts. I have been trying to cut out snacks at night before bed. I had gone like 7 night until last night when broke down and gave in. I figure we don’t have to be perfect in our journey to better health, but the key is to be moving in the right direction. Much like the gospel, conversion is a process of becoming more like God and happens over mortality, the key is to be moving in the right direction. Thanks for your testimony of trusting God.
