I Cortinthians 6:19-20 "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's."

Welcome ladies to my new blog.

The Lord laid it on my heart to start this blog to encourage me and help me keep track of my progress on this journey I have begun to get God's temple back in shape. I will be keeping track of how my days go as each day goes by. I will share struggles I've had as well as victories the Lord has given me over temptations I have faced. I will strive to keep up with this blog faithfully although it will get hard at times due to health issues.

I pray you will find encouragement here and also feel free to leave comments sharing what you have experienced if you would like.

Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."

sis. marsheila....I love that statement that Sis. Karen started using...."See less of you next time".

Thank you for coming by and leaving a comment. I know we can do this as long as we trust in the Lord for the results and the strength to do this.

Love you!!

sis. connie....I had no idea you would find my new blog. I didn't put it on my other blog as of yet in my links. Thank you for stopping by and for leaving a comment. I think this blog will really help me to stay encouraged to keep going and I pray it will do the same for others. I had no idea that you had a blog for this reason as well. I'll have to check it out. Is the link on your other blog?

jessica...your encouragement means so much!! Even though you aren't SUPPOSED to lose any weight...LOL!! You and Kristina being in the group is really a great help to me. I know y'all don't know that. But when I see y'all working at improving the temple of God it encourages me to do so. Y'all are already thin and it helps me stay focused on what I want...to be healthy like you two. Thank you for being in the group as encouragement to your momma and also to the rest of us. I love you!!

shelly....It means so much that you left a comment!! You are my best friend in the whole wide world!!! I love you and appreciate you and your encouragement. I'm going to trust the Lord for the results that come from this journey. I sure hope you'll consider getting back on the journey yourself. You and I can do this together long distance!! If you still have your books that is!! You and Amanda were supposed to start...did you ever do that?

I love you so much and thank you again for leaving me a comment!!
