This picture was taken by my husband Wednesday, March 18, 2009, our wedding anniversary.

I just wanted to let you all know that I am watching all that goes into my mouth and waiting for the day in the not too distant future now when I will be able to post a 200 pound picture on my side bar. I hope to be able to do this by my birthday on May 27. It is slow but God is helping in every way. I can not asked for more. I have had a bout with the flu and food poisoning this last month. Guess what the food poisoning was from a salad in a Seafood place. It all looked so good, smelled so good but then as Christians haven't we learned how deceiving looks can be.

In less than 24 hours, I had all the effects of food poisoning. I am feeling fine now and have prayed that no one else other than myself and my daughter in law Michele had it.

So, I will continue on with watching the foods that I am eating, asking my self "are you really hungry?" I am beginning to exercise some and hope to continue that and as
Sis. Julie would say, "Drink my Water."lol. It really does help.

I hope all of you in which ever way, works best for you, are doing a good job and are finding your goals just a bit closer each day. In everything it is sticking to it that counts. If you go a day or two or two months, don't give up just take heart, pray and get back with it. I think we all know by now, if we know not much else of anything about losing weight, with us it is going to be a lifetime battle. So, it is a battle that I intend to win or be winning when I take my last breath. The Lord will not find me slacking off, I pray. connie

Happy (late) anniversary....mine is one month after yours.....April 18th...this will be 23 years for us.


Dear Lisa,thank you, Oh you are going to do so much better than I have. Just make up your mind and stick to it no matter if you don't meet your goal EVERY day , just keep trying. love you, connie


Dear Sunny Days,thank you! My husband picked out the dress, so I am very happy to have it.

I am staying about the same, had a spell of gout and it has slowed me down some but hopefully by next week I will be down a little more. It is a little at a time but by this time next year, we will be much less than we are today, God willing.

Thank you for the anniversary wishes. and a VERY HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO YOU ON APRIL 18TH. 23 YEARS, is something to be very proud and thankful for. Keep up the good work!!! love you, connie
