"He must become greater, I must become less."
John 3:30 (NIV)

There's just no other way around it, no other way to define it. If my desire is to be a true follower of Christ, then ALL areas of my life He must become greater & greater, I must become less & less. More God = less me.

This, truly, is a lifetime journey, praising God � no matter the circumstances � every step of the way.

My Goals:
January 2013

In 2007, using the tools & support on SP, I lost 45-lbs. I have since put on some of that weight, but PTL not all of it. I am recommitting to renewed health � spiritually, physically, & mentally.

My FIRST weight-loss goal is to lose between 25-50 lbs [1-2 lbs a week] by July 2, 2013. That is the date my oldest daughter is getting married. Very exciting times!!
*******GOAL MET*******
******DOWN 29-lbs******
******JULY 2, 2013******

I will THEN continually aim to lose 10% of my weight at a time until I'm down to a healthy BMI [I'm 5'7.5"] AND Waist-to-Hip Ratio.

Once I achieve a healthy goal weight, I will CONTINUE to concentrate on toning and, of course, maintaining.

THROUGHOUT this process, one of my biggest goals � and MOST IMPORTANT � is to see/love myself the way God does. Praise God for His grace, love, mercy & just ways!!

    While I was walking around Walmart doing my grocery shopping, with my daughter helping me, i noticed something bugging me in my shoe. I thought perhaps it was the support hose I had mended just wadding up but the irritation got more pronounced and finally I took my shoe off in the middle of the isle and dumped whatever it was that was in my shoe. To both our surprises a tiny spring from a pen had somehow gotten into my shoe without my knowledge and was the irritation. My daughter, quick on the draw, announced joyfully, "Mother you have a spring in your step." We both laughed and laughed. May the good Lord help us all have a joyful spring in my step daily with a positive attitude. LOL What is the little irritation in your "shoe" today? We can all make our little irritations stepping stones to success if we try. Irritations as you know can be triggers to eating wrong or too much.
