This morning I spent some time praying for my new friends who are joining me in my weight loss challenge, and visiting some of their blogs.

I loved visiting Cortney and was thrilled to find she has set up a ticker counter on her site to chart her weight loss. So I did a little investigating and learned you can get this for free! However, it looks like the site is set up to help keep track of ovulation cycles. So don't be surprised when you get there.

Good job Cortney!!

I have somehow managed to put one on my site, and included the 8 pound loss that is the first step of my goal. (There is more to follow, by the way)

I'm also praying for my friend Spring who has set a goal of writing. Visit her blog and see what a great writer she is! Of course, you'll read about her two little blessings, which are her first priority as a mom! And two reasons why she needs some accountability.

This morning found me very discouraged in my own challenge. I knew I was going to a pizza party last night, so ate very lightly during the day and ran two miles. I only ate 2 pieces and this morning my scale jumped up 2 pounds!!! Aack!

Knowing I'm going to post my weight on Friday has really kept me going. I don't know what the scale will read, but even if it's a gain, I'll post it.

If you ever feel like the world is caving in on you, here's a little quote to make you smile:

"I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!"~ Dr. Seuss

As Christians, we already have One who is set to act on our behalf. While I love Dr. Seuss, as I read this quote, I know it is truly God who is my defender and protector. Yours too.

Hi Glynnis,

You should not be discouraged at all. Pizza is very high in sodium and will cause your body to retain water. Usually what I do the day after I eat pizza is flush my system with a ton of extra water and the blip on the scale will go back to normal. I am believing for a weight loss of Friday.

Now for my moment of truth. I am posting a writing goal in which to be held accountable. I started a blog this past summer and have only made two entries in it. My goal is to post one entry on my blog per week. I also have a homework assignment for my writing course due Dec 1st. And, since we are being truthful, I haven't even started it. Okay, that's a good goal for now, espcially since I am starting to hyperventilate. :-)

The Dr. Seuss quote is great - but, better than a bat in my hand is the Sword! I was claiming His Word this morning after some news from the Dr. yesterday that made me anxious - so thankful that He is in control.

Don't be discouraged with the numbers on the scale. I only get weighed once a week for that purpose - by Friday the numbers might make you happy again.

Praying for you too,
