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.

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. FYI, I heard about the iTunes song reward on another blog and thought it was a great idea too. Its sometimes hard to think of rewards for the little goals we accomplish.

    Hi Carol,

    You asked a question on my blog about what eating plan I am following. I am full force following the carb cycling plan of Chris Powell's. The guy who does the Extreme Weight Loss show. He and his wife also follow that same plan, it's not a diet, it's a way you can live. I love it, because it allows me to lose quickly, and I do not feel robbed at all! As You can see from my blog, I eat tons of food! And I am on his lowest calorie plan. You can learn about his plan in his books, "7 day Carb Cycling" and "Choose More, Lose More for Life" The second book is the best, but the first one does cover most of the basics.
    I added you as a friend, and thanks so much for all the positive support!
    Good Luck on your journey as well!
