Where the Rubber Meets the Road

Well, it has begin. People have noticed and are beginning to comment. And it is at this point where I begin to "freak out" a little.

I was gathering my kids and a woman got my attention. "I don't want to get into your business or nothing like that," she said, "but MY GOD, you've lost a TON of weight". I was speechless. (Not QUITE a full ton, but apparently enough that they had to really be sure it was me). One of my friends called out from across the room, "Yes! she has..."

She asked what I had done. "Martial arts, and changed the way I eat...." (now SHE was speechless....) Apparently, it's a good combination that works well for me. And.... I feel good. Really good.

But, seriously. When people start to notice is when I start to back off. I lose my focus and my discipline and it all falls apart. It's like that point where Light and Darkness meet - I think the song says that's "where the healing begins...."

So, I pray for perseverance. I pray that I continue to push through the obstacles - internal and external - and DO THIS.

May He walk before me and beside me. I trust He has placed the people and situations in my life that I need to succeed.... if I trust.

It's that leap of faith... and it's where the rubber meets the road. If we don't keep walking through this - He and I - I'll never get any farther than I have been.


for "inquiring minds", and the sake of being 'transparent' - it's 25 lbs thus far. (and yes, I'm thrilled...)
