Yes, I am a Christian. Yes, I can be the biggest hypocrite ever. I backslide. I stumble. I fall. I stray onto the wrong path. But God is working in me. I may be a mess, but I’m His mess. And He is slowly straightening me out. And the day will come when I will be by His side, His work in me completed. And until that day I will take His hand, and let Him do in me whatever needs to be done, no matter how painful it will be for me. When He is finished, it will all be worth it.

    Thank you so much for your response to my thread about hair loss. I really appreciate it. I hope the things you're doing are working for you. :) I bought some Biotin already and was taking it but got frustrated feeling like it wasn't helping. Lol. However, I had not waited that long. I just read it can take 6 months to see results from the Biotin. Lol. I resumed it yesterday actually. I also don't think I'm taking in enough protein even though it is the staple of my way of eating. According to your formula I should be eating 142 grams a day for my weight. That is not easy to do. I think I'm gonna have to find a supplement or something. Sigh. Lol. Anyway I added you as a friend so please feel free to add me back if you like. :)

    Thank you for stopping by I read My One Word in January by Gary Ashcraft. It started me on my Fit bible study for 2014 and asked God to speak to me through that word this year. Man it's been amazing! I wanted to learn what would make me healthy in all aspects of my life. Thank you for your prayers. I pray God lead your journey to be everything you need.
