I lost 52 pounds a few years ago and am a Lifetime member of Weight Watchers. I had regained nearly half ot it, but I'm glad to say I'm about 10 pounds under that now. I'll keep on doing what I'm doing now and may be able to lose more, but I'm thinking that at some point my body will say "STOP" and that will be the right weight for me, I guess. My dh and I have been married for 41 years and have 5 children - 3 boys (2 of them are in Heaven) and 2 girls. My son is married and has 3 girls and 2 boys. My son was a pastor until he had a massive heart attack in March of 2008. God brought him through and, even though he has just 20% of his heart left, he is gaining stength and is back to preaching and singing and playing the piano, despite the doctors' saying he'd never preach or sing again. They just didn't reckon on God! My older daughter has 4 boys and a baby girl in Heaven (can't you just see her having fun up there with her uncles?). She's a SAHM and homeschools the boys. My other daughter teaches at Trinity Baptist College in Jacksonville, FL and is also executive secretary to the president of the college. My husband retired this year and enjoys fishing (crappie only!) and goes every chance he gets. When he's not fishing, we're either outside trying to clear our land of the mess left from the workers who cut our trees or "tearing up the roads" between TX, FL, GA, and LA. We're certainly enjoying retirement! I've had some health issues - nothing serious, Praise the Lord, but currently I'm doing ok.

    THANK YOU for your support on my blog this morning! Fortunately I put it all behind me and got ON with my day!
    Sad to say, I didn't ever get to the gym ( REALLY got overworked at work today! ) but that's OKAY. It just 'has to be okay' as my sister is fond of saying! LOL
    OH MY GOODNESS! I just realized HOW CLOSE you are to GOAL! WOWIE CONGRATS!!!!

    Hi- We went to church last night and this morning.We have the same service both times. My husband had to be at church both times to set up the table in the foyer getting guys to sign up for the men's round up. It is the camp for the guys they have in September every year. My hubby really enjoys the fellowship and the wonderful speakers and music by special groups. It is a wonderful time of worship and to much good (bad) food.
    Either place for messages is good . This makes it more personal. I like both.
