This is a good day to begin again....again

It's my birthday! What better day to take stock of where I am and decide where I'm going? I am thinking birthdays are a better day to resolve to make changes than New Years day. Afterall, it's a special day for each of us if we want it to be.

I am losing weight...40 pounds to be exact!! I am beginning today to make a few little changes in my eating habits. Once I have conquered those changes I'll make a couple more changes. I think a major overhaul is not the way to go. More importantly, I shall begin today to change the images I have of myself in my subconscious mind:

MARK 11:24 NKJ
24 "Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.

Exercise is a four letter word in my book. I shall begin again. Three days per week at the Y and treadmill here at home on the off days. I am praying for a change in my attitude about exercise. I want to love it and look forward to it.

I am grateful for good health and good friends. My high school girlfriends are taking me to lunch today. How blessed am I to still enjoy friendships from my childhood? These wonderful, amazing women have been part of my life for 55 years! I thank God for them. The well wishes on Facebook have been overwhelming too.

Thank you everyone for making my day special. I am hoping you will help in holding me accoutable for this exercise and diet journey.
