Welcome to my page! Glad you stopped by!!

Hello and welcome to my page!!I'm Linda (Lyn), and I'm 48 years old. My weight gain started over 20 years ago. I was 19, looked in the mirror and thought I was fat. I weight all of 132 pounds. In 3 months I got down to 125. I loved it!! But, I didn't eat breakfast, only ate a tuna sandwich with a granola bar for lunch, and ate only veggies for supper. No meat. And very small helpings of veggies. Then I would go to an all female gym, workout for 4 hours (6 - 10pm) every night.

Then I met my husband to be. The workouts got few and far between, and the eating and drinking started.
When I got engaged I was 22. I was 40 pounds heavier.
We tried right away for a family. Seven months later I was pregnant with my first son. I gained 46 pounds. I was 200 pounds. I was mortified but happy! (Can that be!!) I didn't lose the weight, 2 years later was pregnant with my 2nd son, only gained 18 pounds with him.
Now, 24 years later in marriage, I have gained a total of of 112 pounds.
I want to lost to feel better. I will do it!!!
Good luck to you on your journey!!

JESUS (the sweetest name I know) ~

His shed blood means we can live each day in His forgiveness.

His resurrection means we can walk constantly in newness of life.

His day of victory makes all our days complete!

Praying His Very Best Is Yours this Easter Season!


For in Him we live & move & have our being. ~ Acts 17:28 NIV


There will never be another act of love
so pure or triumph
so celebrated
as the humility of the cross
& the miracle of the empty tomb.

Bonnie Jensen

Have a wonderful time of rejoicing in the Resurrection!
