Today, I got the MOST wonderful phone call, but before telling you about that, I wanted to give you a brief update on our [my mom and me] metabolism miracle diet. This is day 4, and to be honest, I DON'T think I could have handled my dear mother leaving if I hadn't gotten some of the carbs out of my diet. Unfortunately, they don't like me much! ha!
But after almost 4 full days of limiting our carbs, I feel pretty good, and so does my mom. I'll keep you updated as we progress towards the 8-week liver/pancreas rest and let you know how it's going.
Today, I rec'd a phone call from my PRECIOUS sister-in-LOVE [as we like to call ourselves]. Her name is Karen and she is actually on SPARK as ORDERMYSTEPS. Here is her page if you want to meet her. www.sparkpeople.com/mypa
We have been 'heart sisters' for 20+ years--married to brothers, and I'm SO grateful for her friendship!
She said she was busy in the kitchen thinking about my weight challenges, when the LORD reminded her of the goal I had created when I joined SP--to be at my wedding weight and FIT into my dress again with ALL 8 of my children surrounding me. I met my weight goal in April, 2011
Then took the photo shoot in June 2011 [my college son was away so we had to wait until May or June]
She suggested that I take that wedding photo of me and stick it in my Bible as a reminder that I [we as Believers] am the bride of Christ, and that all that I do to treat my body like it's meant to be treated will be for that GLORIOUS wedding day, when I will put on another 'wedding dress' of sorts, and be prepared to meet HIM--my Eternal Bridegroom! WOW, what a picture!!!! And what an encouragement!
Thank you, Karen!!!!
