Today is Veteran’s Day. I want to take just a moment to thank our troops – both past and present – who have given so much for the cause of freedom and to defend this great nation. We are blessed by their sacrifice.
If you recall, my nephew Cory is currently serving in the Middle East. I’m praying for you, Cory, and your family while you are away on our behalf.
Please continue praying for our troops.
I’m sure you noticed, this morning I placed a ticker under my header. I’ve been battling it out with my scale for a couple of years now gaining and losing the same few pounds. So, in order to give myself a kick in the hind parts, I’m placing the counter where y’all can keep an eye on it. My goal is to lose 6 pounds by New Year’s.
Now I know… THEY say you can’t lose weight during the holidays, but I’m (once again) a freak! I’m a little motivated by the things “they” say can’t be done.
I read on my friend Leigh Ann's blog tonight that she lost SIX pounds last week. I’m a trainer, and I’m telling you, that’s a ton to lose in a week – that’s like, “Biggest Loser” effort! I’m impressed, Leigh Ann!!
Well, if Leigh Ann can lose six pounds in a week, this old gal can lose six pounds in seven weeks. I’m not a math genius, but that’s less than a pound a week. So, I’m going to give it a valiant effort.
Anyone care to join me?
