Weighty Matters.....

You know what....if all the time and effort....and worry and thought.....that us ladies put into "weight" issues.....if all that was put into time spent in God's word, and doing things for Him, and for His glory....then what a better world it would be, huh?
I'm talking to myself here, I guess....and I'm a whole lot just thinking out loud....well, not really "out loud", but where you all can share in my thinking. Aren't you envious when you see somebody who seems to just stay slim and trim? Or, somebody who has lost a lot of weight....and can keep it off??? And, don't you get so very tired of the fact that the "world" puts so much emphasis on a person's size? It's like if you're fat....then there has to be something wrong with your mentality!!! Weight is a very touchy subject with I think it is with most people...not just women, either....but, those of you who know me well, already know that without me having to tell you. I wish I were smaller....but I'm healthy....just ask my doctor....look at my blood work and all of my levels...they're right where they need to be to be considered "healthy". (I know I'm trying to justify being fat!!!) Yes...I would look much better if I lost about 25....30...okay 50 pounds. I know that if I really made the effort....really, really tried....and did the 2 things I know are the only things that make me loose weight....less calories +more movement....that the weight would come off. But...obviously I like to eat too'm a firm believer that things that have happened to us in our lifetime can contribute to how we see ourselves and can affect our eating habits. Maybe someday something will be said that will be the exact thing I need to hear....
and I'll loose all this excess baggage.
But... the meantime....

.....I am who I am....

.....and I hope that my weight doesn't offend anybody!!!

('s a wonderful newsletter with lots of great articles about weight loss...I think I could write one of these things myself...ha! ha!)

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!


  1. Now Ms. Debbie, I have told you over and over that you are a beautiful person inside and out. Keep that in mind and I love ya. And if you learn anything from the Biggest Loser, which I just love to watch because of those amazing transformations without any kind of diet, they eat more calories to burn off when they work out. You have seen some of the ones who eat less calories either don't lose or they gain a pound or too. So, if you get the gumption to workout and get fit, you'll have to find someone who can figure out how many calories you need to eat in a day to burn off the fat. But again you are "BEAUTIFUL" (ever watch Bruce Almighty, remember that word) Love ya and have a blessed day!

  2. you make me laugh! i love you!

  3. Something I am learning, and know that I am a "slow learner"...other see us through our attitudes, our expressions in hard times, the smile on our face, the encouraging words of Christ ....and love us! BUT we see ourselves through the eyes of a "dirty window"...through the "dust of rejection" that is on the window....the world has laughed and mocked people with a slight over weight issue to the obese. I was and then I wasn't and now I "was" again. LOL
    We love you for the kindness you show, we love you for the sweetness that you share through your blog, we love you because you add joy to our life, we love you not because you are thick or thin, tall or short, male or female, black white red or yellow...we love you because YOU ARE YOU! A gift wrapped in the the love of Jesus to us! PTL


Kind words are like honey—
sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
