As most of you who follow me know, I have been on a grand adventure to loose weight. Although I wish I could report that I am further along in the process, I am proud to say that I am now 22 pounds down from when I started and 30 pounds down from the day Chelsea got married! So much has happened during this time, but all I can say is that God is so good! Up until just before Christmas, I was die hard sticking to the plan. The Christmas holiday is here and although I have not totally blown it......I have not stuck to my plan in hard core fashion! I have been steady in walking and although not all of my workouts show up in FB.......I am getting anywhere from 2.5-4 miles accomplished at least 3-4 days per week! I have improved from a 20 minute mile to around a 12-13 minute mile! I may not win any races........but I am winning the battle! So much is going on right now and I want to ask for your prayers! God has been revealing bits and pieces of His Will for our lives concerning Rene, our son from Honduras. One day I will tell you some of the things that God has shown us, but for now I just want to covet your prayers. It is our desire to make Rene a legally permanent part of our family. It is also our desire to bring him here to be with us........FOREVER! We have many mountains that we need God to move and I am ever so thankful for a Mountain Moving God! I also want to say that Rene is a huge part of me being motivated. He is so active and it makes it so much easier to be motivated when he is inspiring us in his sweet subtle way! On Christmas Day, Chris, Chelsea, Rene and I went to walk at Felker park. Chris made it 1.2 miles......Chelsea and I walked 2.5 miles.......and Rene, well he ran 7! We all sat in awe as we watched him pass by. We would have walked further buy my heel was not cooperating and a bout with accidental glutening of myself made this walking journey end sooner than later! I am so thankful for each journey I am on and I thank God for His incredible help in each step of each journey! I am going to post a side by side picture below and I hope that you can see a difference. Not huge, but I will take it!!! May God bless you all and I will try to loose quickly so I can post another positive update soon! Oh, and thank you for your prayers.......we need them!
