"All the fat belongs to the Lord." Leviticus 3:16b

The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. I just hope he wants to take my excess fat because I don't want or need it.
I am excited to be on this journey. I can do this. It will definitely not be easy but I am up for the challenge.

St. Teresa of Avila left this prayer behind in her prayer book when she died in 1582:

"Let nothing disturb you, let nothing frighten you. All things are passing; God alone is unchanging. Patience obtains all things. God alone suffices."

That prayer helped me get through many difficult times in my life. With as much weight as I have to lose I have to remember "Patience obtains all things."

With patience I can lose slowly and safely and get my life back.

"There is hope for your future, says the Lord."
Jeremiah 31:17

    Hello! So nice to hear from you!
    Glad you are able to get back to Iowa and visit your mother and family.
    I am still here, but have gained some of the weight I lost back; really do need to chart what I eat better. I have been able to keep walking and I do exercises for my back and knees each day.
    We had a tornado a couple of years ago that took our "high tunnel" green house. We planned to rebuild, but my husband had shoulder joint replacement surgery - plan is to get a new one built next season and get back growing those heirloom tomatoes. We do have several plants in our little garden.
    We still have the cattle and so baling hay & ditch grass has to be done.
    Again, it was good to hear from you!

    I was reading your green bean statement. I love green beans and so do my kids but I have a friend who hates them as much as you. If the cook accidentally puts them on her plate in a restaurant she insists on a fresh plate with new food.
