On August 28, 2017 during prayer with Jesus, I knew that I needed to cut off the connection of tv with food. I've spent my entire life eating this way. BUT I knew that was a clear message from God. So, I did! WOW! What a freedom I now have to eat at the table with no tv or social media. Then, I get up from the table and enjoy the rest of my life! As I edit this profile, it has been over a year that the food/tv thing was cut off. Wahoo! Secondly, I did something else. I began to write a "Living Manifesto." It is a statement of principles that clearly share what you believe. A manifesto is a call to ACTION. A manifesto causes the listener to evaluate the gap between what he/she believes and how he/she is living life. This manifesto is "living" because its filled with God's Word, the Bible. In it I also apply God's word with statements of faith and truth. Now, given all of this wonderful knowledege and truly establishing these 2 great habits, you would think that I would now BE at my goal weight which is to be in One-derland. But, I let circumstances distract me from my complete victory. So....THIS...IS...MY...COMEBACK! "So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." 1 Corinthians 10:31

    Hello Janine,
    Glad to see you back. I have lost around 50 pounds, but I have been having a harder time lately. I am back in the States for about 2 1/2 months and eating some of the food I missed while in India. Also I have been visiting family. So I have been fighting to stay the same. Still tracking calories, but I have been having too many calories....I've been doing my exercises which I did not do while I was visiting my daughters and 8 grandchildren. So we just need to keep on. By God's grace we can do it! emoticon
