Year End Reflections

"The sin that is most destructive in your life right now
 is the one you are most defensive about."  (Tim Keller, twitter)

When I acknowledge that eating too much, eating thoughtlessly, and eating for reasons besides nourishment is sinful behavior, I experience the most health and "success" in my eating habits.

The statement applies to many other areas of my life as well...Thankfully there is a way to deal with the sin problem that puts my life and daily choices on a whole 'nother track!

Nothing to promote health and a good frame of mind like a trail-walk with grandkids on a sunny, winter afternoon.... (Why don't I do this more often?!?)

Photos - Past and Present

This photo is kind of weird.  I know!
But after reading the link in Myra's most recent post
I've been processing the subject.
I can't speak for the reactions of everyone else who looks at my "fat" photos.
Only for myself.  
And I will say, I will take this weird photo over the "fat" photos ANY day! 
 I AM a happier person when 
practicing healthy habits
and functioning at a healthy weight.
I am SO thankful I found a system that has (finally) worked 
to both GET me to this place
and keep me here.
The photo?
Taken over the Thanksgiving Holiday, poolside, 
by a young grandson who was waiting for his swim suit to arrive.
I handed him my phone/camera to help him occupy his time...
