You Are Invited

I've been quiet for a while.
Because I've gotten busy and let a lot of things go.  A lot of things that had become important…that required discipline and planning…have gone undone.
Including my health/weight/fitness.
So it's time to start over…AGAIN!
This time, I'm asking about 33,000 of my closest friends to help me.  And, most importantly, I'm asking GOD to take over again!

"I know how to get healthy - I just can't get motivated!"

Ever said that?

Want to join me?

You know how much the book Reshaping It All meant to me in the beginning of my "better me" journey.  I still plan to revisit that one, but I'm starting a new book.

Its called Made to Crave by Lysa TerKeurst.

I have heard her speak twice a the Extraordinary Women Conference.
She is hilarious.  More importantly, she has battled to be healthy and shares her experiences.  Most importantly, she is filled with the Spirit of God.

I cannot wait for this study to begin!  I've already been receiving emails from the host, Proverbs 31 Ministries, preparing me for what is to come.  I believe this study is really going to help me get my head on straight AGAIN!  And, let's face it, getting your head in the game is really what makes a difference!

I've already been encouraged in unexpected ways by the Facebook posts from P31!  They have obviously followed God's promptings because it has changed my attitude a few times already!

Here's a my own journey in a nutshell:

  • Got super-motivated and started eating well and exercising
  • Weight started coming off slowly, but was moving
  • Started running - weight came off faster
  • Lost about 25 lbs
  • Went to Disney World, ate too much, enjoyed holiday after holiday
  • Been trying to get back on track for about a year!
  • Gained about 15 lbs back.
  • Still down 10, but only 10

So…will you join me?  There's a button over there ~~~~~>

While I am committing to this study, I am also committing to share my thoughts, feelings, and experiences with you here.  I value your feedback and your own honesty too!

Hi, I'm dropping in from the BlogHop. I am very excited about this Bible study and looking forward to the community of women where we can encourage one another through this. I've lost and gained the same twenty pounds for a few years now and am looking to get a healthy attitude so I can life a healthy lifestyle without all the feelings of failure. Looking forward to reading your future bloghops!

Yup right there with you! I have been a rollercoaster on the weight loss journey and I think, no I KNOW, this too, will be the thing I need to stay on track. I have never looked to the Lord for strength in my fitness and I think there lies the problem. Excited to share this journey with everyone!
