Struggled with weight issues my whole adult life. In October of 1998 at the age of 37 and at 337 pounds I decided to have a stomach stapling procedure. I lost 150 pound after almost two long years. This was without exercise. I drove an 18 Wheeler during this time so exercise just wasn't something that I could or would do. I really never reached my goal weight at that time. And then as soon as I lost that weight there were some family crisis that occurred and took an awful toll on my emotional being. I put the weight right back on. Again in 2011 I lost 80 pounds. That time also took awhile, I was still on the truck. And like anyone addicted to any substance, I fell off the wagon once again. But since January I think I feel like I am finally getting a handle on this. Now into September and have lost 90 pounds with around 75 to 85 to go. I will do this for good this time. NEVER EVER GIVE UP!!!

    No Room by John Peterson

    (1) No room, only a manager of hay
    No room, He is a stranger today
    No room, here in His world turned way
    No room, no room
    Angels, in heaven up yonder
    Watch with amazement and wonder
    To see the Son of the Highest treated so
    No room, no room, no room

    (2) No room, here in the hearts of mankind
    No room, no cheery welcome could find
    No room, surely the world is blind
    No room, no room
    Angels, in heaven up yonder
    Watch with amazement and wonder
    To see the Son of the Highest treated so
    No room, no room, no room

    (3) No room, only a manger of hay
    No room, He is a stranger today
    No room, here in His world turned away
    No room, No room
    Angels, in heaven up yonder
    Watch with amazement and wonder
    To see the Son of the Highest treated so
    No room, no room, no room
