Well here I am again, starting again. I thought I would have reached some goals by now but things have happened that stopped by movement. I started trying to convince myself that I don't have time for this. No time to start again but there is always time for a come back. I lost my job and the first week home I lost 8 pounds. I realize that the job was stressing me so me not having that job was God's way of getting my attention to say you are losing focus. So now I am at a better place in God and in my progress. I found a job in 3 weeks. I thought that was pretty good. I know people that are out of work for a lot longer. Not only did I find a job but a good job that offers gym memberships and the gym is RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET. Wow, how great can that be. I found someone at work that wanted to start working out so we go on our lunch break. Then my daughter found us a free workout program in the evening 3 days a week. So now we are back to working out again. So God has shown me there is always time for a come back and you come back stronger, wiser and better. Isn't that what it is all about.

    I have been on SP for so long, that I'm not sure if I have met you before or not. But...I noticed your spark name on the scrolling blog thing...and I thought it was very clever...SLIMDERELLA! Wish I had thought of it emoticon

    Anyway...keep on keeping on. This is not just a physical battle, but I believe it is a spiritual battle as well. Have you every read, "Made to Crave"? She touches on the spiritual side of getting our eating/exercise in line and how that relates to our relationship with God. I have tried to ignore that aspect for years, but I do believe it is essential for us, as believers, to get ahold of. See what you think. Jo

    Oh that is awesome! I too was away for awhile, and issues where I couldn't exercise, and now I'm slowly getting back to it! It's NEVER too late to start over!

    It's amazing how God works things out so sweetly in his ways. Keep it up!
