Ramblings from the Ranch

I am a homeschool mom who is tired of feeling bad about myself because of my weight. I am a cherished child of God with worth and value because He is Lord of my life. I am learning to be healthier because this is the body He has given to me and I want to take care of it to the best of my ability.

Fitness Minutes: 737

My Goals:
One of my main goals is to learn to love me because I am a child of God. My worth is not based on my weight. However, I do want to learn to live more healthy for the glory of God and this body He gave to me.

My Program:
Right now, my program consists of trying to begin a few good habits along with counting my calories. I am trying to give up soda (yes I am a sodaholic) and switch to more water. I am also striving to add exercise to my daily routine. Lastly, I want to make overall better choices of food and learn to listen to my body when it says it is full.

Personal Information:
I am from a small town about 30 miles from Birmingham, AL. I have lived here all my life. I am married to someone I went to high school with and I have three children. I homeschool so we are always going in a hundred different directions. I love the Lord, although I have a lot to learn when it comes to living for Him.

Other Information:
1st Goal:
Get under 300 pounds.

Back in 2008, you left a supportive comment on my blog. I just wanted to drop by to say thank you. I have not been the greatest SPFriend, but I'm trying to change that. It's because of SPFriends like you I was empowered to lose 152 pounds. If there is anything I can do to guide and support you, please let me know! emoticon

Hi there!

I am in search of talented Christian artist that need a little motivation or know others who need motivating in this area. I am a christian mother of 1 daughter who is a super talented artist. She was homeschooled from 6st grade through 12th & is now attending college. She needs a little more motivation in developing her artistic abilities, so I built a website sponsoring a christian art contest. I am hoping this will motivate her to get serious about her work when she sees other Christians that are serious about art. I just started the site and can really use some support getting it going. If you are an artist or have a child that is an artist and want to submit your artwork and enter the contest, that would be great. If you canít participate, please pass on the link to others that may. I would even love it if you gave me some feedback or left a word of encouragement in the forum. The website is www.christianartcontest.com. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and may God Bless you!

JoAnn

Hello fellow Osburn,

Thanks for satisfying my curiosity about our shared name. I hope you're having a great day, doing good things for your body and spirit. That's one of my goals this year, not just to focus on weight and physical health, but on my spititual health, more time in His word and in prayer. I know giving by addiction to Him is the answer. I just have to give it every day. I started a workbook called Lose if for Life by David Atterburn. He's lost 60 pounds and has kept it off for many years and it helps figure out the emotional and habitual part of why we eat. I've just started it but am looking forward to some serious figuring out my issues.

Sorry about the rambling, sometimes I just get going.

Anyway, keep up the great work, stay off the Dr. Pepper : )

Take care,
Bonny
