I live in the country with big wide open fields around my house. My kids and I witnessed one of God's promises. And it was the nicest one I have ever seen. I usually only get to see a part of one but this one was completely whole. It was amazing.


November 11, 2000 Macky and I were married. After the wedding we were hungry so before we started on our honeymoon we stopped at a Subway to grab a bite. Macky was so cute while we were ording our food he announced to the server that we just got married. Every year we make a traditional stop at a Subway on our anniversary. Our ninth anniversary Macky surprised me by taking me to the very one we stopped at nine years ago. Not only that but he fixed a reserved table just for us. It was very sweet. I was very content with my Subway date a few days later Macky annouced he had another surprise. A few days later we get in our car and make a trip to Branson, Missori. Stoping along the way to Graceland were we got to take the Elvis tour.In Branson we saw alot of shows including the Oak Ridge Boys. I love it when they sing Elvira. Macky is so great I am so blessed to have him as a husband.

Another update

I have lost a total of 40 lbs. I am very excited. I am also tired I have 60 more lbs to go. It seem like it is never going to end. That hallway just keeps seeming to be longer and longer. Thanks for the prayers I diffidently could not have gotten this far with out God and your support.

Holiday update

So I did not lose any weight during the holidays, but I did not gain any weight either. So I count that as a win! I measured myself the other day and compared those measurements to some I recorded a while ago, and I have lost 5 inches around my waist. I lost four inches around my hips. Unfortunately none in the upper region except my face. I can tell a big difference in my pictures. Thanks for all the support and prayers. I will be going on a trip with the college students this weekend. Please pray that I can be strong in this new environment.

Another update

The status as of today is 30 pounds are gone. I am getting anxious for my plateau. I know it is coming. It has been real easy actually too easy and when the plateau comes I am afraid it is going to be too hard for me to handle. I have a lot of support and I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Well that is it for the update Thanks for the prayers.

O.K. so here is my first update. I am doing pretty well I usually get all my 88 ozs. of water a day and usually wanting more. I have turned away pizza and cookie cake. Cookie cake was real hard I had to just get away from the temptation. As of Sunday I have lost 10 pounds. I am not real excited because I know it is just water weight. After about 50 pounds I usually struggle because that is when I am getting into the real problem. I think it is ironic that I have to drink tons of water to lose weight especially water weight. I would think I would be gaining more water weight.
The other day I watched a show called The Obesity Clinic. I guess I was interested because I am obese. Thankfully I am not morbidly obese. There was this man on the show who weighed over 500 pounds and all he did was complain. He complained on how the 12 men who had to lift him out of his bed into an ambulance. That they embarrassed him. He complained about maybe having to go to the zoo to get a MRI because that was the only machine big enough. I was quite annoyed with him but then I thought about all the things I complain about. Then I was quite annoyed with myself.
So that is it for my update thanks for the prayers.vKeep them going.

Weight promblem

I would like to take this opportunity to ask for your support and more importantly your prayers. I am with God's strength going to lose this burden called weight. I hope I can be patient and not easily discouraged and fall back into very bad habits. I will try to update my progress maybe even vent little. Of coarse I may miss a week just because I can't get to the computer.
I told one of my friends that Macky put me on a diet. I quickly had to explain that did not come out right. Macky has offered to help me with this problem I have been struggling with for at least seven years. I am so thankful to have such a loving husband who loves me at this weight but just wants me to be healthy so I can feel better.
