Thankful ~ Day 9

"I AM THANKFUL" Challenge ~ Day 9

Today I am thankful for the 40+ pounds I have lost.

I picked my younger son up yesterday (not something I do too much these days as he is now 5) and couldn't beleive just how heavy 54 pounds is!  Now I know I didn't lose the equivalent of my child, but not too far off.
It amazes me to think I used to walk around with that as part of me.  I can barely climb a couple of stairs and carry my son, how did I do all that I did with those extra lbs?
I NEVER want those pounds back!!

Thank you Lord for helping me lose this weight.  By your grace I'd like to lose at least another 20 pounds.  Please help me to get on track and stay there.  And please help on my blog buds who are also looking to live healthier.  Amen.


  1. I will add my amen. So awesome to have lost that weight!! I bet it feels so good. Good for you!! :)

    I am grateful today for a "tender mercy" from the Lord. I was feeling bad that I missed a "Time out for Women" event last weekend. They always have these cute bags they give out when you go. Last year, when one of my friends couldn't go, I picked up a bag for her and even got it autographed by all the motivational speakers! This year, I had no one to go with and didn't get my bag either. Then, today, I had a lunch date with a friend, and she brought me a bag from that event! She had no idea how much it would mean to me. Just another way the Lord was showing me that I do have friends and that He is aware of my little "mini" heartaches. I knew you would appreciate this so I thought I'd share. I am SO thankful for a loving God! :)


  2. WOW! Forty pounds! You are doing SO great! Definitely something to be thankful for. Keep it up! :)
