If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

My Day

Tuesday's are extremely busy for me right now. I got up this morning and took KJS to school and then I went straight to work. I got off around 5pm and then went to WW and left there and headed to church for Bible Study. I got home around 9:30 tonight. It's been a long day, but it's been a good day.

Bible Study was awesome tonight. I'm facilitating a Women's Bible Study Group at my church. We are doing the Beth Moore Study "Believing God" This is one awesome study. We're learning to actually believe God and not just believe in God. It makes all the difference. If you ever get the chance to participate in this, it is well worth the time and effort.

I've got to end this now and go to bed. Goodnight!

Week 1 is over

Went back to WW tonight and I have lost 2.4 lbs. That means only 59 to go. Actually I was hoping to lose more the first week, but at least I lost and didn't gain! So my journey has begun.

Beginning (Again)

I started a new battle on Tuesday evening. I joined Weight Watchers. I guess it's really not a new battle. I've fought my weight ever since I can remember. I gain, I lose, I gain, I lose, etc... (you get the idea). Well, here I go again. In the past 6 months or so, I lost 19-20 lbs and then I went on vacation and never seemed to get back to the diet and I've gained about 10-11 of that back again. So, now I decided to quit trying to do it by myself and joined WW. I've done their diet before (in fact that's what I did this summer) but I guess right now I really feel the need to have the accountability of weighing in in front of someone. I always do well on this diet and I believe I will this time too. But will this be the time I'll actually make it all the way to goal and keep it off? I certainly hope so. I only have to lose 61.4 lbs. (Wow!!!) That's kinda scary, but I have been heavier, so at least I'm better off than in the past. I'm starting this time without having gained it all back plus about 10 lbs.

Stick around with me and see if I can do it. I'll post some "before" pictures soon and then I'll try to post some pics as I go along. Feel free to join me if you want.

My First Ever Blog

My friend has been blogging for awhile and I've enjoyed reading her stuff, so I thought I'd try and see what happens. I'm a 51 year old wife and mother who works full time for our city police department. On this blog I will be known as CLS. My husband whom I'll refer to as TMS is pastor of the local First Church of God. Our oldest daughter will henceforth be known as KLS and she is a junior in high school and our youngest daughter will be called KJS and she is in 7th grade. Our life is extremely busy and crazy, but I love it. Hope you enjoy visiting with us.
