"He must become greater, I must become less."
John 3:30 (NIV)
There's just no other way around it, no other way to define it. If my desire is to be a true follower of Christ, then ALL areas of my life He must become greater & greater, I must become less & less. More God = less me.
This, truly, is a lifetime journey, praising God ï¿½ no matter the circumstances ï¿½ every step of the way.
In 2007, using the tools & support on SP, I lost 45-lbs. I have since put on some of that weight, but PTL not all of it. I am recommitting to renewed health ï¿½ spiritually, physically, & mentally.
My FIRST weight-loss goal is to lose between 25-50 lbs [1-2 lbs a week] by July 2, 2013. That is the date my oldest daughter is getting married. Very exciting times!!
******JULY 2, 2013******
I will THEN continually aim to lose 10% of my weight at a time until I'm down to a healthy BMI [I'm 5'7.5"] AND Waist-to-Hip Ratio.
Once I achieve a healthy goal weight, I will CONTINUE to concentrate on toning and, of course, maintaining.
THROUGHOUT this process, one of my biggest goals ï¿½ and MOST IMPORTANT ï¿½ is to see/love myself the way God does. Praise God for His grace, love, mercy & just ways!!
"You [God] guide me with your counsel, leading me to a glorious destiny."

Hi, how are you? It's been a long time since we heard from you on our board (do you believe I can never remember the name of it!). There are not many left now, Faye , Cris and I and one lady you might not know, Darlys. Oh, and Ann. That's about it. I've lost weight in fits and starts, the total over the many years is now 150lbs gone...thank the Lord. He's been so good to me, and I don't deserve it. Come back and visit sometime.

“Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life’” ~ John 8:12, NASB.
John 8:12 is the passage God has given me as a life-goal for 2015. As I seek Him for a New Year’s BLESSing for you, it seems good to pray that you will have all the Light needed for the path ahead, dispelling all darkness, and giving you the light of day for each step ahead. Happy 2015!
