Visions, Dreams, Reality

I am 54 and need to lose over 100 lbs. I've lost weight since 12/25 when I enrolled and I feel good about that. I am looking for friends and local buddies too. I've spent the last several years being a hermit and now it is time to start a life. My 5 dogs aren't enough company. But I really want to get to know people. Thank you and hope to get to know you.

I'm turing my visions and dream into a reality. I'm losing and getting in better health. I didn't get sick this winter at all. And my energy level is increasing. I'm also feeling happier.

DEC. 31, 2011 THE LAST DAY OF THIS YEAR.
HAPPY NEW YEAR
I am 55 and need to lose 89 lbs. Right now I weigh 234 and plan to weigh 145 by Nov, 2012. I lost 15 lbs in 2011 and kept that off. I lost the 15 first part of the year. I managed to get down to 219 twice during the year but it only lasted a few days. I am very glad I kept 15 lbs off but I would be happier if I had the other 15 off.

I starting this year out with a new game plan. Today I made up my menu for Jan. My fitness plan for Jan. And I created a weight tracker to keep on my wall at home for the year. It has my goal line on it and what I should way at the beginning of each month. I'm trying for 9 lbs every month. I plan to be down to 145 lbs 11/4/2012; then I need to keep that weight off for 1 year because in Nov 2013 I plan on hiking the Supai Canyon with my 2 sons. It is 8-10 mile into the Grand Canyon to Supai Villiage and then each waterfall is about 2-3 miles apart. I've always wanted to see the Havasupai Falls. Their pictures are awesome! The water down there is suppose to be 70 degrees.

So here I go again with new goals, new reasons, and still turning my visions and dreams into reality!!

I just read this poem & felt it too good not to share on this CHRISTmas Eve! God bless!

{This is another version of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' }


'Twas the night before Jesus came
and all through the house
Not a creature was praying,
Not one in the house.
Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care
In hopes that Jesus would not come there.

The children were dressing to crawl into bed.
Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.
And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.

When out of the East there arose such a clatter.
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!

When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.
With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray
I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY!

The light of His face made me cover my head
It was Jesus! returning just like He had said.
And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth,
I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.

In the Book of Life which He held in His hand
Was written the name of every saved man.
He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
When He said "it's not here" my head hung in shame.

The people whose names had been written with love
He gathered to take to His Father above.
With those who were ready He rose without a sound.
While all the rest were left standing around.

I fell to my knees, but it was too late;
I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate.
I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

In the words of this poem the meaning is clear;
The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
There's only one life and when comes the last call
We'll find that the Bible was true after all!


(by Reverend Edward M. Gionest, Sr.)

To those who receive Him, He gives the power to become the sons of God, even to those that believe on his name. Repent and declare with your mouth that Jesus is your Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him up from the dead, you will be saved.

JESUS (the sweetest name I know) ~

His shed blood means we can live each day in His forgiveness.

His resurrection means we can walk constantly in newness of life.

His day of victory makes all our days complete!

Praying His Very Best Is Yours this Easter Season!


For in Him we live & move & have our being. ~ Acts 17:28 NIV


There will never be another act of love
so pure or triumph
so celebrated
as the humility of the cross
& the miracle of the empty tomb.

Bonnie Jensen

Have a wonderful time of rejoicing in the Resurrection!

I know what you mean about being a little off. I have been out all day and I am going bowling tonight. I have spent too much money today. But I got new drapes for my living room. Mine are in shreds they are only 34 yrs. old. I think it was about time. The just for fun. I got a new shower curtain, rods rug and towels and then a soap dish and a cup and I am going back for the tooth brush holder. It is all going to be a girly bathroom. After all it is my house and I can decorate for me and not me and my man. Miss him though but it has been a good weekend so far. emoticon
