A New Year, and a new beginning!

God has been faithful to sustain me along the way as I have battled the weight loss journey.

After caring for my terminally ill mother-in-law for 25 months in my home, she passed away this past September. Needless to say, the 55 lbs I'd lost on Weight Watchers back in 2006 started to creep back on.

"Granny" & my newest grandson's care became more of a priority then myself. I put myself on the back burner. Fortunately, I've only gained 20 lbs back, but I want to ...
God has been faithful to sustain me along the way as I have battled the weight loss journey.

After caring for my terminally ill mother-in-law for 25 months in my home, she passed away this past September. Needless to say, the 55 lbs I'd lost on Weight Watchers back in 2006 started to creep back on.

"Granny" & my newest grandson's care became more of a priority then myself. I put myself on the back burner. Fortunately, I've only gained 20 lbs back, but I want to nip it in the bud before it gets any worse.

I have gotten back on the bandwagon in the new year by focusing on me a healthier lifestyle. I know it will take a while to get my groove on, but I am determined. I've begun tracking again, choosing wisely, and have joined the gym again.

My body is crying right now, but one step in a healthy direction is better then NO STEPS. It's one day at a time, one step at a time, one bite at a time. I'll get there. I've done it before and I will do it again.

I know all things are possible with God's help, and as a spirit filled believer - I can do all things thru Christ which strengthens me.

I covet your friendship and prayers.

I had forgotten you were an avid quilter! I am working on a sports theme small quilt for my sister who is graduating from CRNA school in a couple of weeks. But, it is only my third quilt. I have hopes for many more.

I was really tickled to hear from you. I know how hectic things can get. I am glad you are staying at the fitness and losing weight. God bless you!

Oh--THANK you for the goodie!!
