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."

I'm Sorry For The Absence

I know I have been away for a while. I didn't realize how long until I recorded my results this morning and noticed the last date I recorded on. It has been over a month now. I'm so sorry!!

I have been going through some very dark times in the past couple of months. I had given up on my weight-loss and had given up on other things and other people. I had let my walk with the Lord slip and for that I am most shameful. The burdens I've been carrying have become so heavy that I fell beneath the weight. Things are some better in one of the trials but the other two are still dark and ongoing. The one trial concerns my brother's death as you may know. The second one concerns our youngest daughter and something that has happened to her as well as some bad choices she has been making lately. The last trial concerns my husband's employment status. The devil has tried his best to get into this family...and at times I've even thought he succeeded. But that is only because I had let my guard down.

I haven't been really working at my weight-loss. But I've felt lately like I needed to get back to it and get back to encouraging you all to drink your water...LOL!! I have not stopped that. That is the one thing I just can't seem to get away from. I love water and my body craves it if I don't drink it like I normally do. I've lost over 3 lbs since I posted last and am the lowest weight I've been in years. For that I'm thankful.

I pray you all are doing well with your weight-loss. My best friend Shelly (who does not have a blog but I'm trying to encourage her to start one) has been doing WW for the past several weeks and has lost so much weight that she has been able to have her blood pressure meds reduced. We are so excited about this!! When we lose the weight...it affects our health and makes us feel much better. Congratulations Shelly!! I'm so proud of you!!

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

Thank you to all of you who have continued to visit here and comment on my last post. You are the reason I even continue with this blog.

Update Picture August 2008

August 2008 (30 lbs. lost)

I'm So Sorry!!

I'm so sorry I haven't posted in a couple of weeks. I posted on my devotional blog that I needed to take some time away from blogging due to what our family has been going through lately. I needed to focus on my family and also on my own personal walk with the Lord. Things have gotten really burdensome and I was about to lose it. I'm doing much better but we are still having to deal with alot concerning this latest situation. I ask that you please pray for my family and me. God is faithful and I know He is!! I just need to concentrate on looking to Him and not be worrying about what my next post is going to be. I have not been doing well with my weight-loss either. There isn't really anything new to post there. I'm maintaining and hope to post on Monday. I am sure the news won't be good news but we'll just have to see. I haven't weighed myself in a while now just because I know I won't like what I see.

I am posting my update picture after I post this post. I will be around to y'alls blogs soon and hope that you are all doing better than I am. I am drinking my water!! That is about the only thing I'm concentrating or watching that I do. I hope you all are drinking your water as well.

I love you all and thank you all for your faithfulness to my blog(s). You will never know what a help and encouragement you all have been to me!! I love you all so much!!
