Instant friends

Late last night as we were coming home we saw a fire and being curious/nosy we went to see. We ended up being the only ones who seemed to care, as this elderly couple watched in terror as their house burned. We didnt know them but we know the feeling, as our house had burned last February. It was sad that not any of the neighbors came out to offer them help. So my daughter and her generous heart paid for a hotel room for the night and my sister gave them her jacket. We even took in their3 dogs for the night. It is so sad, especially to see that nothing could be saved, Please pray for this elderly couple named 'Hills'. I do thank GOD that they were able to escape with only minimal injuries.

    How awful!! I can't believe their own neighbors wouldn't come out to offer any help. Bless your hearts for stopping and your daughter for paying for a hotel room. Thank goodness for people like you and your family.

    I am sure that the Hills were grateful that curious/nosy. Bless you and your family for being willing to help them out. It must be horrible to lose your home especially this time of the year.

    emoticon on your loss. I've found that sometimes just a change in routine is enough to confuse your body into giving up a little weight.

We ran into some financial trouble and I was so worried and I keep saying to myself "I have faith, GOD will get us thru" and sure enough our problem was not as serious as I thought..Thank you Heavenly Father for answered prayer.
So far my weight has stayed the same for 3 weeks, and I am ready for change. My plans, to take lunch to work daily, continue the water, drink more milk, and earn 6 WW activitypoints. So here I go --->

I finally looked at my legs and they are humongous emoticon that it makes me sick. So I went out and just did it and went for a walk. I felt good when I got back and it wasn't as bad as i thought it would be. I think any type of exercise will help me at this time. But just so it's noted I am looking into having weight loss surgery, not for awhile yet.
Lately I've been under a lot of stress from work and am trying to get through these Holidays which are so hard (missing my baby). Please keep me in prayer.

    Hey Joanne, hang in there, I know I have these moments too! I sometimes feel overwhelmed by the amount of weight that I still need to lose, but through lots of prayer, I keep moving forward one step at a time... one meal at a time... one day at a time. I can't undo the last ten years of eating and living unhealthy, but I can make the decision that this meal won't add to the problem, and that I will get up an exercise... even when it's not fun!

So, with that being said, I just want to encourage you that you can do this. You can do it one meal at a time, and one step at a time walking. You can overcome this challenge and the emotions involved with being frustrated over your weight and appearance. I am proud of you for getting out and walking! I am proud that you were able to make yourself do that! Keep up the good work! emoticon
