2 of my heroes.........my nieces
4 of my siblings all smiles at bowling alley
I recently decided to have a life, Iv'e been there for everybody else and forgot about me. I have been caring for other's so much and looked around and forgot to place myself first.. I am challenging myself not to be invisible and know that I really do mattter.
When I decided to make changes to my page, I was going to delete this first paragraph but I decided not to. Because at the time I wrote my introduction, I was been burried alive. I was breathing but had no life in me. I just had enough breath to supply to others and not to myself. But in order to see the changes, I had to remember where I came from, to appreciate the journey I am on. Now 30 lbs lighter and finally able to breathe on my own. Because for a long time, I was on life support and had to ask God for the breath of life and he gave me himself as my oxygen. I wasn't present in my own life and now I am. I must say that this book hasn't ended but the chapter where the main character dies, has just been revised. She decided to rewrite her story and continue on her journey. I don't know the ending to this amazing story but I will tell you, it will be a sequel.
I WAS 10 LBS SHY OF REACHING MY 40 LBS WEIGHT LOSS FOR THE END OF 2008. I LOST 30LBS--YEAH ME!!!! THIS YEAR BY END OF JUNE I WANT TO LOOSE 40 LBS AND BY DECEMBER OF THIS YEAR 2009, I WANT TO HAVE LOST 30LBS, BRINGING TOTAL OF 100 LBS IN ALL.
30 MINUTES ON TREADMILL AND 30 MINUTES WEIGHT TRAINING. 15 MINUTES ON EXERCISE BALL AND 15 MINUTES OF PILATES.
IT'S BEEN ALMOST 7 MONTHS AGO, THAT MY MOM WENT TO BE WITH THE LORD AND BEFORE SHE DIED, SHE TOLD ME THAT ONCE SHE DIED, I MUST LIVE. SHE HAD SEEN ME GIVE UP MY LIFE TO TAKE CARE OF HER-IN WHICH WAS A HONOR TO ME. BUT SHE WANTED ME TO LIVE AND NOT DIE. SO I HONOR MY MOTHER'S MEMORY BY SHOWING UP FOR LIFE.
I AM A FAITH WALKER, I LOVE GOD SO MUCH. I FEEL SO BLESSED EVERDAY HE ALLOWS ME TO LIVE. I AM A HUMBLED SERVANT.

Hello my Sister in Christ! I have returned from my darkened hours and am ready to go for my lifestyle change again. I remember logging in one day and saw that you put a comment on my page back in June. It built me up, but I guess I was already on my way down. You know, satan tries to get to the strongest ones through our emotions. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I hurt myself a couple of months ago and I couldn't truly workout. That's when I lost my zeal. I tried to stay positive, but as I looked in the mirror, I began to see the reality. All I kept thinking to myself was, "Man, I did all of that work and I'm letting it go down the drain." I crept back into the 200lbs category that I worked so hard to get out of. And then as I was driving back to San Antonio from Houston one day and out of nowhere I heard God say, "It's time". I immediately knew what that meant. So I began fasting and praying. It was the purest time of my life, that I can remember. I spent so much time with Him in communion. His presence is everlasting. Now, I feel better and I look better. I ended up losing more weight than I had on my own. I guess I wasn't focused on this, I was focused on God. Now I cherish the moments with Him. Remembering to talk with him about the things that bother me so He can help me through it faster.
Thank you for your encouraging words. God always sees the things we do in the dark. Even the Good Things. May God continue to bless you on your Journey. There's only a few weeks left before the end of the year. I'm praying you accomplish your goal.

Just sharing with you a parable that I hope will make you smile and brighten your day.
PARABLE OF THE PIG AND COW
The pig was unpopular while the cow was loved. This puzzled the pig.
PIG: People speak warmly of your gentle nature and sorrowful eyes. They think you’re generous because each day you give them milk and cream, but what about me? I give them everything I have. I give them bacon, ham, etc. I give my all.
The cow replied…
“It’s not really what you give when you’re dead. It’s about what you give while you’re still ALIVE.”
