On Purpose

done. just begun.

Completed. Accomplished. Finished. DONE.

I landed! From January 3, 2012 to December 18, 2012 – 50 weeks. A filled chalkboard.

118.2 pounds lost in 2012
This photo was taken last December 11, 2011. Size 3X



Today, December 18, 2012, same scarf just on size medium. (A bit fuzzy but you get the idea.) 

“It always seems impossible until it is done.” I love that quote.
I’m grateful to God for helping this oh-so-ordinary sparrow. “Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings. I cling to you; your right hand upholds me.” Psalm 63:7-8
I’m grateful to my family who have had a front row seat in this journey of mine from food addiction to freedom. Your love has always been unconditional. Your support means the world to me.
I’m grateful to you, my friends. Your affirming words have cheered me on. Your patient following of my journey has been a gift to me. Many of you have prayed for me. THANK YOU!
So, what do I eat today? Same thing I ate yesterday.
There is time ahead to make adjustments. Today I am taking a mental break to enjoy this year’s success before I pick up the challenges of what lies ahead.
Perhaps someone reading this could use a dose of Hope before this 2012 year closes out. Hope for a new relationship, maybe even the most important hope found in Jesus Christ? Hope for gaining victory over a bad habit, hope in establishing a good habit, hope in fresh starts?   
I will leave you and 2012 with this photo. If I can do it, you can too. Whatever it is, there is HOPE. (2 legs in 1. The one item left in my closet for this very day.)
Same heart, different sized-Sparrow.
Love & sweetest blessings from baggy-pants.
