I'm such a loser!
Thanks to the LORD!
HE is making me stronger.
This is more of a note to self than anything else. I need to remember this, but at the same time, I want to give Him public praise for helping me to overcome things I neve... Read more
I'm trying to figure out what is going on with my body. Today I went out for my walk/run and I felt depleted from the very beginning. I made the entire 3.4 miles, with some running, but I was very slow...about 20 min/mile...and I had to stop alo... Read more

I think it is time to take the walk to the gym and... Read more
Hey, hey, hey!!!
I'm back and when I got on the scale this morning, I weighed 202.8. I guess the strange deal with the scale was that it said I had lost weight a couple of weeks ago when I actually hadn't. I don't know...but, I'm back from the... Read more
I've had the weirdest week with my weight.

A few years ago, when I struggling with the first signs of aging in my face, I was really distressed about it....especially in this culture where it seems that beauty is a god, wrinkles and fat are forbidden, and perfection is a must...even at t... Read more
My grandson is about to make his entrance into the world. My daughter is having all the symptoms of early labor.
Please pray that she doesn't go into labor at night because it is difficult for her to get to the hospital at night.

I'm still following my experiment as closely as possible, and today, I was running around all day and didn't get to eat the way that I should.
