In just three days I will be turning 39! My life has been very good. The Lord has blessed with me with wonderful gifts and talents. I have a wonderful godly husband and a beautiful home. My mom lives with us in our basement. I just adore having her close by. I am also blessed-- oh, thank you, Jesus!- that I have been able to lose a little 25 pounds in the last six months. I am so happy about it. Of course, for my height and my weight, I still need to lose another 30-35 pounds! But I am simply, right now, setting a goal to lose another 6-8 pounds before the school year ends. Wow! How wonderful that would be! Losing weight has been a struggle for me for years. It has affected my personality and self-image and self-security. I've missed out on a lot because of my weight. My prayer is that 2011 will be a HUGE change in my ways for me and my husband.
