A good year!

Thursday, November 06, 2008

As I think about what happened 11/4/2008 I say what a good year. An african american will be President of the United States. I cried and I cried. This was an awesome day in the life of many. I still get filled up just thinking about how far we have come. Well I know this is a weight loss site and I should blog about that but I had to say that this was a good year.I have lost weight this year with the help of many spark friends encouraging me and praying for me. As I am a bit stuck now not moving my ticker because yes I have been cheating, I still say this is a good year.I proved to myself that I can eat healthy and I can exercise no matter how large I am. I will continue on fighting this battle to kick this weight off. I just have to say again what a good year. Weight loss and an African American President....To God be the Glory! emoticon

    Thank you for dropping a line and visiting my page. I was just reading your blogs, very inspiring and encouraging. You know we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. What the election of Barack Obama has taught us, is their is no limitations on what you can accomplish and that in itself is so powerful. So many people of color or African descent, believe they only can do so much and I say we place ourselves in a box and what Barack taught us, that we can climb out of that box. And that we can be anything. So that's why that scripture is so true. I never want race to determine how far I can go but the God giving talent that I have. But still so many people still judge you by the color of your skin and not by the content of your character. Now that the social commentary is over. Congratulations on your journey on becoming a better you. You are so deserving of the renewal of your body and your spirit. GREAT JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
