Hi everyone, welcome to my home page, I'm looking forward to this new journey and hope we can get to know each other and connect in some personal way. I love to talk healthy diet and love to share my Christian faith and love for Jesus Christ with others, my husband more deeply than I thought a person could AND the neatest thing is, he loved me before I was the perfect size 10, 16, 20, 24, 26 big do the sizes go?! LOL! :o)
I love long drives in the country, love journaling, & reading Christian Historical Fiction. I love being healthy enough to go for long walks and site seeing [in my own back yard or state] but hate that I lost sight of that and have ended up back where I started. However, I did it once, I can do it again! and again, and again, and again ... as many tries as it takes I will not give up on myself.
I realized, this isn't about starting over but NEVER giving up... if one day is blown and or one week... it's still best NOT to think of it as GIVING UP, but pressing through. I don't EVER want to class myself as being OFF PROGRAM. That only gives the right to keep on binging.

God gave me some amazing verses this morning about how He was tormented [wounded] for my sin of obesity, my isolation, my giving up and becoming a shut in.. He spoke to me about how He hath borne MY griefs, and carried MY sorrows: it is all the more reason for me to succeed and be thankful for this 2nd chance at bettering my health and yielding my life to Him [to be able to get around like I should be able to]. I no longer want to walk in the shadows of who I was or could be.. but, I am looking at every day of this journey as a day of regaining who I was in Him and who I am called to be NOW. I see deeper, the need to submit to God and not to what's being said about me or to me... God turned on a LIGHT and I'm not a mere shadow of who I was ..but, He is restoring me!

Favorite Quotations
"So when the devil throws your sins in your face and declares that you deserve death and hell, tell him this: "I admit that I deserve death and hell, what of it? For I know One who suffered and made satisfaction on my behalf. His name is Jesus Christ, Son of God, and where He is there I shall be also!" (By Martin Luther)
I hear a lot of people say they are of this church or that church [or group], following after that person or this person [doctrinally]; labeled Calvinist, Armenian, Reform, home grown, etc ... come on guys, the Bible says "Is Christ divided?" 1Co 1:13 Only those who are putting their trust in "Christ's" Atonement are going to be saved ... "but cursed is the man that puts their trust & strength in men". Jeremiah 17:5-17

(These are my favorite quotes!) To be a God pleaser, not a man pleaser!!!

    Hi Lynn: I can't eat cornbread either, it sends my sugar into orbit, any thing with corn in it, I just try to stay away from. Pinto Beans are good for you, there is a lot of protein in them and they are also whats known as complex carbs which process slower then simple sweets. The scales seem to be moving in the right direction again. Good for you.

    HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS: I'm going to be gone on Christmas eve and Christmas day.

    Hugs: CJ from OK. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    January and February are my hardest months. I get depressed so easily then and I really don't want that to happen this coming year. Easier said then done though as my depression cycles easily and even though I'm treated for that as well as anxiety I can't always fight it off.

    We can try though - keep pushing through winter!

    Lynn: Thank You SOoooooooo much for your comments on my picture of my great grandson and I, He is my 8th GGC, I have 10 GC and 8 GGC and my 9th is due in March 2016. So you see 2016 is already promised to be a great year. Yes I do guess we can say we have our quiver full and overflowing. God is GOOD, and ALL THE TIME. not just in the good times but in the bad also, because ALL things work together for good for those who love the Lord and are the called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)

    HAVE A WONDERFUL SUNDAY: CJ from OK. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
