Hi All,

I am a married mom with a sixteen year old son. I am thirty-nine years of age, and I have finally decided to change my life. No longer I am trying to lose weight for vanity. Now, I am going to lose weight for spiritual and health reasons. In 2002 I was able to lose one hundred and thrity five lbs. I went from two hundred and seventy lbs to one hundred and thirty five lbs. That was a whole peron!!!! And I felt so elated to buy smaller clothes, because that is one of my interest, clothes.

The only problem I had was that it didn't bring the happiness that I expected. Before I blamed all of my problems on weight. Things would be so much better, if only I was smaller. At least that is what I told myself. But now I know that I was feeding myself a lie.

Now, I believe, for me that weight is just a representation of what is going on inside of me. Not, what is happening on the outside. I have learned that I must be happy with the inside of me, and once that is handled it will onlybe a matter of time before it is manifested on the outside. I must give God the glory, and know that I can do nothing without him.

He is my rock, my stregnth, and my savior. He keeps me, when I don't know how to be kept. He loves me inspite of my faults, and through him I am perfect. He doesn't want me to be down trodden, critical, and unsatisfied. He wants me to have an abundant life. All I have to do is realize that , and keep my eyes on him.

Having been down this road before, I am determined to do it differently this time. I will enjoy this journey as much as I can, and I won't starve myself to do it. I will learn to listen to my own inner voice, and trust that things will work out for my good. But most of all, I will rely on my master to supply all of my needs.

To God Be THE Glory!!!!!!
