That puts me a 4.5 pounds down. Not enough for a button--but I'll take it anyway.The idea is a little bit at a time. It will happen if we don't give up and look back.
Yesterday was time for posting my dreams. Of course weight loss if one of those dreams. Do you have some dreams you need to vocalize and write down? You might want to check out that post. The MEME was started by Leigh over at Speaking Through Me.
If you would like to do a little dreaming--post it and let me know.
I get an email devotional by Elisabeth Elliot each morning--this morning was about dreaming and praying. I am doing a lot of praying and a lot of dreaming at this point in my life.
Today it is about some weight loss----I can see it. Me looking fit and trim. Healthy. Can you see it for yourself? We know this is according to God's will because He expects us to care for His temple. He says when we pray according to His will--we've got it.
If you have a little extra time here is the devotional. It is short but good.
So--you have a fantastic day in the Lord. You are the apple of His eye. He can never love you more that He does right now. He longs to spend time with you.... and He loves, loves, loves hearing your voice. Talk to Him today--it will make His day. And then He will talk back to you--and it will make your day!

Yesterday we looked at a piece of property on the sea. There were lovely woods to one side, two tall, scraggly, very picturesque pine trees on the other, huge rocks which turn pink in the sunset below, and in front miles and miles of blue ocean.
It is not always easy to know whether a thing we long for is a temptation from Satan to distract us from obedience and make us discontent, or something God actually wants to give us and therefore wants us to pray for. There is no such thing as something "too good to be true." God is loving and lavishly generous and has promised to give what is good--that is, what He who is omniscient knows to be good for us.
So today I asked Him to give me the prayers He wants me to pray and to give or withhold anything according to his plan for me. Nothing is too big to ask of Him, not even an ocean lot. It is God's business to decide if it is good for me. It is my business to obey Him.
"No good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly" (Ps 84:11).
