Hebrews 13:20-21 "Now the God of peace...Make you perfect in every good work to do His will, working in you that which is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen."
Well--long time, no blog!! : ) It has been waaaay too long (which will be explained shortly)--and I have been so ready to get back in the game!
I have had many things on my heart the last several weeks, which I will share over the next several days, but today--I'm keeping it to just 2 things. So here goes...
1. A Weight Update.
Bwa ha ha ha! So funny!!
I have been so encouraged by the loving and caring response I received about my weight blog posts.
I introduced myself here, explained the biblical views on weight loss here, and talked about "a plan" here.
I am so happy to say, that in my first month, I lost around 10 pounds! Woot woot!! Eating healthy and exercising... It's been really great--learning to rely on God and His help. And He does help. Thank you, Lord!
How have you all done? I am looking forward to hearing!!
2. A Surprise.
I almost don't know what to say. We are shocked, yet very happy and excited. The verse above is so reassuring to me--knowing that even though it wasn't our plan--it is God's plan, which is perfect and wonderful... "working in you (and me!) that which is well pleasing in His sight". even quite literally!! : ) *Sigh of comfort and relief*
Needless to say--this is one reason why I haven't blogged in so long. This little, blueberry-sized wonder has been rather rough on his/her mommy. : ) As I'm sure many of you mommy's out there know all too well about!
3. So how does this affect the weighty issues?
Well--I'm so glad you asked! : ) Let me just say that, all though this does change the plan somewhat--in the way of the amount of weight I can loose... It doesn't mean that I will stop!
I had a great talk with the baby doc about the subject of weight... You know, when I had Little Red, I fell into the trap of "eating for two". And, I DID. Ugh. Now--I know better. I won't make that mistake again.
Part of me is a little scared about the weight and body effect this little one will have on me... But, God is in control--as ALWAYS--and I'll rely on Him and His help. : )
Hhhhhmmmmmmm... What a crazy month this has been... : )
