Hello, my long lost friends! Actually, I'm the one who's been MIA, so I've got some serious 'splaining to do. As most of you know, I have been going to Weight Watchers again. I started going again at the end of January. I don't know what it is, but this time, it's like a FIRE has been ignited somewhere within me and I have such a DESIRE to do well! I've been working out six days a week, eating healthier, tracking every bite in my journal, and praying. A lot.

I feel so loved. I feel as if my Father in Heaven and I are developing a better, closer relationship. And I also feel that He is giving me gifts: patience, desire, ability, understanding, self-compassion, energy, and most of all, He is blessing me with His sweet, sweet fatherly love. I am now seeing the pounds coming off more quickly, and after all that I can do, I find that He has joined me in my righteous cause. He magnifies my efforts, and maximizes my results. I have been more successful this time, and I would count that as a direct result of time spent daily with Him in prayer and scriptures study.

To date, I have lost forty pounds. I lost ten on my own, before heading back to Weight Watchers, and another thirty since joining again. My weekly average is almost two pounds a week. Since I have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), weight loss at this rate is SUCH a miracle. I will always count it as such, for I have come to know through years of battling my weight, that I simply CANNOT do this on my own.

So I want to publicly thank my Father in Heaven. I love Him and I recognize that He blesses me daily in a million ways. And when I think of all the future blessings He offers me, I am humbled and filled with a brightness of hope. For the first time in nearly a decade, I feel as if I have control over my body. I'm in the driver's seat, and my Savior is riding shotgun. And guess who's filling the back of this vehicle? Angels. Many, many angels are guiding me as I walk this path to reclaiming my physical health, strength, and vigor. I am thankful for these sweet angels, both heavenly and earthly.

I count my blog readers among these angels. Thank you for never giving up on me, for believing in me and my abilities. I love you all. I have so much to tell you about what has been transpiring in my life. I pledge that I will start writing more often, so I can share all. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Glad to see a post from you. I've been wondering how you were doing. Congrats on the weight loss. I'm completely lacking motivation right now...

Thanks, Tamaran! I've decided that it's all about times and seasons. When you're ready, you'll be blessed with the desire and the ability. In the meantime, be gentle and compassionate with yourself...I'm sure you have a lot on your plate! We women are so darn good at assigning guilt where it is not needed! Thanks for the comments! LYLAS!
