Mary's Journey

My starting weight many years ago was 308. I have to remember how far I have come. I am in this for the long-haul. The problem most of us- especially women, is that we look at our imperfect bodies and find all the things we wish were better. I have come to the realization that we become our own worst enemy in the battle to lose weight. How many times have I let a few days of overendulgence cause me to totally lose my courage to go on? Not any more. I am determined to keep going, even ...
My starting weight many years ago was 308. I have to remember how far I have come. I am in this for the long-haul. The problem most of us- especially women, is that we look at our imperfect bodies and find all the things we wish were better. I have come to the realization that we become our own worst enemy in the battle to lose weight. How many times have I let a few days of overendulgence cause me to totally lose my courage to go on? Not any more. I am determined to keep going, even when I have less than perfect days or weeks or months. This is a lifestyle, not a diet. This is a fitness program, not a contest. God is for me, so who can be against me?

Happy Valentines Day and God Bless, hope your day is blessed!

And you enjoy the following Valentine Poem! emoticon

You Are Often In My Thoughts

Love is a command
That Christians are called to do;
Our Lord says "Love your God,
And love your neighbor, too."

Some people are easy to love;
They are human rays of sun;
They light up every life,
And encourage everyone.

You are in that group,
So I sincerely want to say:
You are often in my thoughts;
Happy Valentine's Day!
