Kari's Story...Losing the Other Half of It

Hello, my name is Kari and I have set a goal of losing 69 more pounds. I have been at a standstill since approximatelt two years ago, when I got married. Before that I had lost 76 lbs in one year, used to be in a size 22, and was most miserable. I didn't do any particular diet, just exercised three to four times a week for 30 minutes to an hour, treadmill, freeweights, crunches, etc. I also cut back on my portions to saucer sized portions and cut my sugar to less than 2/3 the previous intake. ...

After the last two years, marriage, four out of five of our teens moving out after highschool, I am tired of maintaining my weight and current size 16, my goal is to get down to 145lbs. and into a size 10 or less. Wish me luck!

A Mother

A mother can be almost any size or age.
She has soft hands and smells good.

A mother likes new dresses, music, a clean house
and her children's kisses.

A mother does not like having her children sick,
temper tantrums, loud noise, or bad report cards.

She can bake good cakes and pies,
but likes to see her children eat vegetables.

A mother is underpaid, has long hours
and gets very little rest.

She worries too much about her children.

And no matter how old they are,
she still likes to think of her children as babies.

A mother is the guardian angel of the family,
the queen, the tender heart of love.

She is the best friend anyone ever has.

A Mother is "LOVE." emoticon

emoticon (Hi Kari, We miss you onCCTT. Trusting all is well. I am not too much for "prepared" prayers, but I thought this was good and worth sharing. It seems to cover it all so to speak.)

The Knots Prayer

Dear God:
Please untie the knots
that are in my mind,
my heart and my life.
Remove the have nots
the can nots and the do nots
that I have in my mind,
Erase the will nots,
may nots,
might nots that may find
a home in my heart.
Release me from the could nots,
would nots and
should nots that obstruct
my life.,
and most of all,
Dear God,
I ask that you remove from my mind,
my heart and my life all of the 'am nots'
that I have allowed to hold me back,
Especially the thoughts that I am not good enough
AMEN
