That was 5 years ago. I kept the weight off for most of those years; sure I would fluctuate 5 to 6 pounds, but for the most part, I maintained until now. I am looking forward to our journey together. When I wrote “The best is yet to come,” I believed it back then and still believe it now.


"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
