  2. Wonderful! I don't really know you (our daughters went to youth group together at COD and we're friends with the Bookers), but I've been following your other blog for some time. I am pretty bad at using computers and don't blog, so I don't even know if I could join your sight...but doubting it. But you're on my favorites list, so I check often.

    Anyway, all that to say I am really proud of what you're doing. And in real life (is this not real?), I think we could be good friends. I've had (and have) the same struggles.

    Thanks for being so honest.

    1. Thanks so much, Debby! :) I really appreciate knowing people are 'out there' supporting me and keeping me accountable! It honestly helps so much. - As to joining, you don't have to have a blog or anything to join. I think if you just click the blue "join this site" button the upper left it walks you through it. But, regardless, I so appreciate hearing from you! :)

  5. That's awesome! Funny I was just using fruit and basketballs as examples with my mom today. Do you know that one pound of fat is about the size of a large grapefruit? losing six pounds of fat is like losing a basketball! Congratulations on losing a basketball and then some!!!!

  11. I thought about sticking 2 fingers between my lips and making that annoying whistle for you, but I don't know how and I doubt you'd have heard it so I'll just say "GOOD JOB! That's alot of butter!"
