Hi, I've been overweight for a long, long time. I see very obese people in wheelchairs and wonder 'what came first, the obesity or a disability' I fear that if I don't lose weight now, I'll be in a wheelchair within a few years. I absolutely don't want that, so I'm dieting and exercising daily to do all I can to avoid it.

My word for 2015 is Courage . As part of a 'follow the star' Epiphany service at my church we were invited to pick a star with a word on it out of a basket--no peeking and no exchanging. The challenge was to post the star where it will be seen daily and to think about and pray about that word and what it means to us. I'm a little fearful of why I might need 'courage' this year but try to think positively about it. Last year my word was excitement. I liked looking for excitement in my life!
