"To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it." - Mother Teresa

So true, so true! Too often we find ourselves running on low fuel or the wrong type fuel and wondering why we aren't doing as well as we should be. The simple answer is that we aren't putting the correct fuel in and/or aren't replenishing it as often as is needed. Mother Teresa's simple phrase packs a whallop!

Today I weighed in at 257.1, so the count is still on the downward trend. I have made so many excuses for not exercising or sticking with my plan (let us not omit all the rationalizing and procrastinating I've done, too), but an article I read on today's SparkPeople practically shouted out to me that it is time for all that nonsense to stop.

I also read and responded to some message board posts; so I know I am not alone, but am part of a large (no pun intended) group of people wanting to accomplish positive things for our lives. Although it won't be easy, I know I can accomplish my goals and, hopefully, be a source of encouragement to others along the way.

"This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us" (I John 5:14).
