On New Year's resolutions
However, I am determined to improve my life, with God's help and for His glory. I made two measurable resolutions. First, to pray for at least 10 minutes every day. I know that sounds lame, but if you don't start timing yourself, you can be deceived about how much you are really praying. I am doing good, if not perfectly, but I have been greatly blessed by this. Second, I want to lose 12 pounds this year, about 1 pound per month. I knew that it would not be possible in January due to our guests and our travelling. BTW, we ate a lot of amazingly good food.
But now our guests are gone, and the travelling is over. I did something today I have not done is years. I got on the scale. I had mentally prepared myself for the worst. I told myself that no matter how bad it was, I would still tackle this. Come to find out I weigh 20 pounds less than what I thought I weighed! Yay! It's still bad, but I already feel like I lost 20 pounds.
