Random Thoughts of Losing 
The scale is going to burn in here. 
My fat has to get off my back. 
My size—No clothes should be a surprise. 
My sugar bugs me like a booger! My shape to me is great!

Fit 4 You was not for me
The knee doctor was who I’d see
I was blessed to have a change of heart
And came here to get a new start
Now I’m armed with information about the knees
And walking here is a breeze
I’m going home with a plan and resolution

To lean on God for a solution

I am pleased to report that when I started at camp, I couldn't walk around the pavilion but by the time I left camp I was walking 7/10 of a mile. Now I can walk a little over a mile. Also, my Dr. weighs me every month. I'm also pleased to report I have implemented consistency with paying attention to the ingredients in my food purchases & small changes; like no meal after 6 pm. With that being said, I've lost 44 lbs. since camp & counting. To God be the glory.

Good Morning, I Hear You!
Life is precious with each breath given with grace and love from God
I take them willingly and mostly unconsciously not knowing
The blessings within each if I knew

I take my life with the same approach
Each day sometimes consciously aware and other times aware
Of the beauty within KNOWING ….

Now I KNOW……
To treat this temple as a gift so I may experience the blessings of EACH moment.
So I can feel the love of God saying in every breath…
”Eat right and know more than you can imagine….”
“Exercise and Know that I am with you every step of the way….”

And with every day I hear Him whisper to my heart and soul….
“Know that I am cheering you on…..go, go, yeah, you got it!…..”
“ can U feel me?….”
“With EVERY step I am here with you as your best friend…..”
“can you hear me?..... You are My child and I am so proud of you…”
“I am here with you…so let’s go exercise again.”

Good morning, my best friend….I hear you!

Thank you.
