The journey...

Life is in the journey, not the destination, so do what you can and take it one day at a time. Go slow, do it right, and make your changes permanent — then help out others who are where you were.

Pics taken on 06/12/09 - MATH LESSON



3500 cal = 1 lb of fat

57 lbs x 3500 cal = 199,500 calories

...I HAVE LOST 199,500 CALORIES...HAHA...wierd way of looking at it, but sounds impressive huh?

Go ahead, admit it!

The scripture I chose today is one I've often prayed over myself and for others - that "God is FAITHFUL to complete the good work he began" in our lives. It's one of those verses I've always clung to and believed over the lives of loved ones. I want to see God's fullness of life come to completion - I want to see people yield to that good work he began rather than rejecting it years down the road. Although definately a different perspective, today I'm just believing the same thing to be true on my weight loss journey; that I'll see the good work completed in my life.

Later folks!

Verse of the Day:

Philippians 1:6 (NKJV)
...being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;

Amen and Amen. 59 pounds is amazing. That is a child Mesha. You were basically carrying a kindergartener around with you! It has to feel so good! Keep up the great work!

Mesha said...

Oh snap!...i don't know if that's a compliment or an insult. LOL...but I'll play it neutral. I'M SOOOO JUST GIVING YOU A HARD TIME...do you know how many MORE kindergarteners I need to get rid of haha...I've got a whole class Jen!

I am laughing so hard right now I can not even comment! Let me get back to you after I clean up the water that just shot out of my nose reading the comments.

Mesha said...

Shauna said...

I am so proud of you and that is a awesome accomplishment. I really am proud of you.

Shauna said...

I am checking you out again...you really are looking good girl!!

Magic Brush said...

Dude.... I guess that could be taken wrong... I am SOOOOOO sorry! I totally meant it as a compliment. 59 pounds is ALOT of weight you have lost. It has to feel terrific! Ask Laretha and Shauan. Sometimes things come out of my mouth WRONG. I'm sorry.

Shauna said...

Mesha when you REALLY think about how much 59 pound is....what a awesome accomplishment! Be honest you know you can tell a difference. You could always work a pair of jeans, but you look great. do not slack off tomorrow with me not being there.

Mesha said...

"work a pair of jeans" huh...NICE! nothing about all of this works any of that. haha. those are my fav jeans that I always wear though. that is my old work shirt from my first job that i'm wearing in that picture too. Jeepers - indoor children's amusement park. It was/is in the great mall, however, now it's called Zonkers! that job seriously changed my life...I don't know if i'd be who i am today had I not got that job and met some of the friends I have today - namely Audrey! God works in mysterious ways! I LOVE YOU SHAUNA!!!

Audrey said...

HAHAHAHA a whole class, seriously mesh laughing out loud. (Have you noticed how the 'lol' has taken the effect out of really laughing out loud. If i type 'lol' I feel like you don't realize I was really laughing out loud it was that funny. anyways..) Why are you pumping me up on your comments? God did the work in your life. May we all be willing to let God use us, His unworthy vessels, to bring Him honor. Seriously bring 30 bones on monday cause im almost there...:-) woot woot

Laretha said...
