I cannot remember loosing weight to be so stressless, and am so thankful to the Lord for walking with me on this journey. I am trying not to think of this as a diet. I am trying to think of it as a relearning. If I think of it as a diet at some point I will stop. I am learning a lot. Often I think I have to limit how much of something I can have and realize I can make it work, other times I think something will work a...

I am so thankful to God for the week. I lost 6 pounds. I know that I have to do this now or I am going to have serious side effects from the diabetes.

I did adjust my goal today slightly to be at my goal by Easter 2014 instead of my birthday. It really should be about God and not me anyway. Perhaps that should have been the goal originally anyway. Lord, please help me in restoring this temple you provided me for worship, servanthood, devotion, study and so much more. Be with me ...

We still went out for breakfast this morning, our normal Saturday ritual, but I made wiser choices. Afterward we walked around the farmers market and bought lots of fresh veggies and fruits. Then dropped off the family, over to church to meet with my prayer partners (have not mentioned my new health plan with them, I probably weight 100 pounds more than the two of them put together) Instead of laying around this afternoon we we...
