Weight loss

Tom and I are still working on the weight loss aspect of our journey. I had bought a scale from a Facebook local sales site, but it didn't seem to work right. I had Tom pick up another battery for it (it is digital) and finally we have a decent scale! So, I weighed Friday morning to see where I was at. 275 pounds. At the doctor last month, I was around 288, so that is possibly a 13 pound weight loss in the last 6 weeks or so. Not 100% sure how accurate the scale is, but I think it's fairly close. So...here we go. I'll be weighing weekly now. :)

Tom and I have both been working at making healthier and better choices in our eating. Not perfect by any means, but progress.

Hug your loved ones

Some things have happened to friends of mine recently that have me wanting to remind everyone. Hug your loved ones. Tell them you love them. Forgive and move on. Life is short. Some things just don't matter in the long run. If you are really upset with someone, think about this. If that person were to suddenly be gone, how important would this be?

And prayers all around, please.

This is one of those days

This is one of those days where I cannot think of a thing to say...but I said I would post everyday, so here I am. LOL. Hope everyone is having a wonderful day. And hopefully I'll come up with something to say later. LOL

So tired

So, the last few weeks, I have just been really struggling with exhaustion. I'm not sure what's going on. Maybe my body is trying to adjust to the healthier lifestyle. Maybe it's my allergies, because they have been pretty bad lately. I don't know. But it's really frustrating me. I'm still getting up and exercising each morning, but it has been a struggle. Just asking for prayers. Thanks, friends! :)

My "baby" is home (for a while)

My "baby" girl got home Saturday afternoon and will be here for about 2 1/2 weeks before she has to leave for Denver. It's been great having her home. I am really struggling with her going to Denver, even though I know it's the Lord's will and that it will be really good for her. So, please keep her (and me!) in your prayers!
