I haven't lost any more weight, but I haven't gained any either! The most important thing I guess that I have accomplished is finding a new type of exercise (that gives me so much pleasure) and enjoying the fellowship I have with you guys. I always hated going to the gym because I felt like everyone was staring at my fat, fat body. I am getting over this a little. I met a friend this week at he gym and I didn't get much exercise that day because she was there. She came up to me and told me how much she loved watching me swim and said that I looked like I was enjoying myself so much! She is just a little tiny lady. She explained that she was trying to learn to swim and just was so scared of the water!!! I told her if the water could hold me up with all my weight it would surely hold her up. She emoticon. She said, " Honey I wasn't always little. I use to weigh over 300lbs. I had to use a wheelchair to get around , but now I can do anything I want to do!" She said she knew that she could do this and quoted Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." We exchanged secrets......mine about swimming.....and she's going to be my new weight-- lose--- coach! Sometimes God just puts people together for a reason and I know that this was not a chance meeting it was planned!!! So the emoticon that I found in my leg last week served a purpose. I am truly BLESSED I have you guys and I have her! I feel like GOD is setting me up for a battle that I shall win in the end. I'm praying for the day I will be able to stick my head completely out of my emoticon shell and God will be able to use me to help others to accomplish their goals!!! I just want to emoticon guys for being there for me.

    That's GREAT!!! Sounds like you two had a "divine appointment"! I'm sure you will be a blessing to each other. My sister is my walking and hiking buddy. I don't know what I'd do without her! emoticon

    Yes!! What a blessing and what a neat example you have met! I have 2 very overweight daughters and the other 2 also struggle. The 2 that struggle have been losing weight and are doing well the other 2 are trying, yet I see them struggle so much. So I am understanding the struggle it is to lose weight. So when I hear of someone losing a couple hundred pounds I say hip-hip-hooray!!

    What an awesome story. Yes, God works in mysterious ways. My favorite verse is Psalm 46:10: "Be still and know that I am God." If only I'd live by that. If I'd just be smart enough to leave things alone and let God handle it, I'd be in much better shape (physically, mentally and emotionally)!
