I Corinthians 10:13
 The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. 
And God is faithful. 
He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. 
When you are tempted, 
he will show you a way out so that you can endure.

Not a very good picture that was taken right before I began an on-line weight loss challenge a year ago.....


Recently.....


Forty-three pounds since this time last year and over sixty since my highest weight.  
To GOD be the glory because I truly give Him ALL the credit.  
This is the longest period of time that I can remember that I've been able to lose and keep the weight off......
and again, that's totally a GOD-thing!

I Corinthians 10:31
So whether you eat or drink, 
or whatever you do, 
do it all for the glory of God.

Benefits:
feeling better physically 
increased stamina 
pressure taken off my knees
getting more exercise
better self esteem
(still working on this one)
lowered BP and triglycerides 
eating healthier
drinking LOTS of water



Downfall:
losing weight ages an already old(er) woman!

I've just gotta realize that the good outweighs the bad.

Psalm 103:5
He fills my life with good things.
    My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!

HOPE everybody has an awesome weekend!

Have fun.....
stay safe.....
enjoy life!!!!

Breathing in Grace,
