Started out with a curve, but I'm back on track.

My refrigerator broke early in the week, took a few days, but its ok I fixed it. I wasn’t able to go shopping until Wednesday night, in the mean time my teenage son who is always hungry wanted pizza delivered!! I also realized I don’t own a scale, so purchased that also. I am 5 lbs heavier than I thought, but I decided I will stick with my original goal of losing 10 lbs in ten weeks.

I have increased my veggie intake, also since I cut back on red meat included more fish/seafood, beans, and found this wonderful multi-grain sandwich rounds from Nature’s Own. Delicious, I normally don’t like bread or whole grain, but these are great!

I am in a bible study class and spend most of my time reading and reflecting, it is great how the Lord worked this out at the same time as this! I pray for all of us everyday, peace, strength and encouragement!

Hi Rita,

I'm so happy that you are back on track. That's what we need to keep in mind. If we have a bad day or a bad week, we just need to make the next one better.

It's so great that the Lord gives us so many frest starts. As long as we don't abuse them.

With lots of prayer we can all achieve our goals.

Hi Rita,

Thank you so much for praying for us. I'll pray for you too, that theLord will allow you to lose beyond your expectations! Have a great weekend!

Hola Auntie Rita! ;)
(even though we are cousins by marriage, by Philippino culture you would be my Aunti or Tita, right?)

What a blessing about your Bible Study! Thank you so much for your prayers. I am praying for us all as a group too and the Lord brings many of you to my mind by name to pray at different times of the day. ;) It´s awesome how we can be connected over so many miles and in the Spirit!

I need you to pray I can clean out my system starting tomorrow. Everyone has been cooking for us and I haven´t been able to shop for things that I normally eat to keep the weight off. I am writing this now and will also jounal about it, knowing the accountability will make me stick to it. Thank you.

Big Crunchin´hugs,
Dani Joy
