So I know it's been awhile since I've written. There's been a lot going on. Change in job for me and Jim, change in attitude about many things and then this...

Loved the movie, but that's not what this is about. This is about my sin. My sin that has put 300+ as one of my vital statistics. You see, on January 1st, 2012, I weighed 300+ pounds. 331 to be exact.

God has been talking to me about humility. Well, I am humbled. I'm also obese.

I read these 2 blog posts (post 1 & post 2) and was once again reminded that just because it's become an acceptable sin, still makes it sin.

The good news, God has already forgiven me. He has already thrown this as far as the East is from the West. He has already removed 34 pounds (and counting) from my body. I joined a gym, hired a trainer (who I am convinced is trying to kill me, love ya Patrick!) and I've started eating better and moving. Thank you Lord!!

Phillipians 4:13  "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength."

Isaiah 41:10 "Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am  your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."

2 Corinthians 12:9  But [Jesus] said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.

Psalm 73:26 My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

I believe this and I know it to be true.

Please pray with me as I end this journey of sin and continue this journey of health and push ups.


P.S. I also relate to this more than ever.

Awesome! I will be praying for you as you pursue this journey. I cannot believe how much better I feel after making the choice to get off the couch and move - making the choice to eat what I need instead of what I want. You will not regret it!

You are amazing! I have this taped to my computer monitor:

Luke 11:9-10 - "And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on skeeing and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened."
