Tuesday Weigh In

Hello my dear friends, how did your week go? I pray it went well. According to my scale this morning, I weigh 154. So, that means I am down two pounds from last week when I weighed in at 156. Woo Hoo, I am happy with that. Keep on keeping on ladies, we will all be winners at this losing game. : Television ads keep offering the gift of easy weight loss. They tell me I do not have to exercise, can continue to eat all of my favorite foods, and the pounds will just melt off of my body. But, the pills are not an instant, magical fix. They are very expensive, can be dangerous to your health, and are usually worthless. Nothing is free, and anything worth having, you must work at it my friends. Dear Lord, You have shown me, that the only free gift is Your grace. Keep me always alert to falsehood. Amen

That's great, Denise! I'm so glad for you. (and sad that your 2 pounds found its way to me!) I think I'll be joining you after the kids and I get moved next week, if that's okay.

Woo-hoo / yay! / and (of course) Halle-lu Yah! Thank You, Lord, for the great work You do in Denise's life, inside and out.

My bad news / good news is that I gained a pound this week—but after the food fest of my sister's four-day visit, I expected worse. :/

Great week! I didn't weigh Friday. Perhaps I will make Tuesday my weigh in day and join you in the weight game. Shame on me, I just had cookies for breakfast.
Love,
Mama Bear

Denise,

The one thing I've noticed if anything truly worked, everyone would be using it. Congratulations on the 2 pounds lost, time to celebrate doing something fun you really enjoy!
