I think that this is a good title for my continued weight loss journey. I lost 30 lbs. over the course of 1 year and have gone up and down over the past 24 months. I lost some inches, and I found them back in other places. Exercise has helped. Exercise is just one piece of the puzzle. Sleep is an important piece of the puzzle, as is what I eat from day to day. My blood pressure goal was 135/85; today it is 131/82(and it has been lower) I still am working to loose the weight, but being healthier in all aspects is just as important.
The SparkTeams are a great way to gain support, and I absolutely love the MysteryReaders team. It is an active group and these ladies really keep you on your toes. and this is all true, so I am still on my journey.
The ultimate goal is to keep the focus on healthy living.

    Here we are in 2016. whether you have been on this journey for years or for months, you know it is hard. Natalie Grant recorded a song a few years ago that gives me the strength to keep going when I am struggling. I hope it will minister to you also.

    ou are here in my heart
    You're the light that guides me through the dark
    You walk beside me, the night seems cold each time I fall
    Your arms are there to hold

    You walk beside me, giving strength I've never known
    And I am not alone
    You walk beside me
    (I am not alone)

    You are here in my mind
    I talk to you and all my fears unwind
    I know I'm loved, for who I am, you make me want to be the best that I can
    And you walk beside me, giving strength I've never known

    And I am not alone
    You walk beside me
    Oh, I am not alone
    Wherever the road leads

    And I rely on your patience
    When I face the unknown
    And because of you, I am, I am not alone, ooh
    I am not alone
    (I am not alone)

    You're always beside me, yeah, I am not alone
    Oh yeah, yeah in the sun, in the rain
    (I am not alone)
    Through the good times and in the pain
    You're always beside me I reach out for your hand
    (I am not alone)
    I know that you understand, oh yeah, yeah
    (I am not alone)

    In the sun, in the rain
    Through the good times and in the pain
    You're always beside me I reach out for your hand
    (I am not alone)
    I know that you understand, oh

    WHat is your favorite Christmas Carol?? emoticon
    I challenge you this week before Christmas to read the words to every verse of that carol and meditate on their meaning. Focus on WHO this season is about. May your heart be open to what the Lord will do to show you HIS love this week.
    Merry Christmas. Christ the Savior is born.
