Last year my family and I moved from Nebraska to Texas. I had a wonderful life in Nebraska full of friends and work and good times (and extra pounds). We moved to Texas and all of that stopped and left many open spaces in my life and lots of time to think. I realized that I had been blessed with (almost) everything I had been asking God for! Wow. Time to take care of myself. Time to take care of my family. No money problems.
One morning soon after getting the children in school, I prayed and asked God for a walking buddy to help motivate me to begin the weight loss journey. In fact, I didn't ask God, I told God that I needed somebody or it probably wasn't going to happen. THAT VERY DAY, I met a person who wanted to get together for lunch or whatever. I just told her, "I am looking for someone to walk with....Are you interested?" She was. And that was a wonderful beginning of the journey to better health and a great friendship!
I have lost 30 pounds and am happy about the changes...I will continue....I am not going to quit... emoticon
