I did it!

I am starting today with part of my transformation.  I joined Weight Watchers and am starting with the online today.  I will get to a meeting on Saturday for an official weigh-in.  I have done WW before and lost 25 pounds.  I then got pregnant with twins and have yet to take that weight back off.  It worked the first time and I know that I can do it again, I just need to be diligent.  I am hoping this blog will help me keep on track. 
Part of the whole process of wanting to lose weight is in the past year, two of our friends have lost weight, lots of weight.  They are both going through a divorce now.  It seems like when women my age lose weight and take pride in how they look, they end up leaving their husbands.  I figure my husband deserves a wife that wants to take care of herself and lose weight because he is deserving of that.  Not that I don't take care of myself or that my husband doesn't love me whatever I look like.

It is the day after Thanksgiving.  I have been thinking about what I am thankful for during the last several weeks.  It has been something that has been on my mind and I will see something and I will silently thank God for the blessings that He has given me.  Yesterday I went on a hike with my husband and four kids.  We are at my brother's house and we were in his woods.  As I was meandoring through trees and brush and a few stickers, I thought of how fortunate I am to have an amazing family!  I also thought of some of the people in our lives right now who are going through a hard time.  I have had this gentle nudging from the Lord to be a better witness to others.  I have been praying that God would show me how I can help others and be an example to them as a Godly wife and mother.  Will I accept God's calling and transform my life?
