Parents are in town...

Howdy! I've recently heard that I need to post new posts. So, I'm posting! As many of you know my parents are in town this week. I do have to admit that I was a bit concerned about food. I know it sounds simple enough but I'm MEXICAN AMERICAN and our love languages are based on serving our family, friends and food. We love mucho, talk mucho, and eat MUCHO!! I've had to be really creative with my food this week. Balancing between eating healthy and not hurting my mom's feelings by refusing to eat what she's served me has been a bit of a challenge. But, despite the challenge I do think I've done pretty well. At best I'll maintain my weight this week. God's really just taken this time to show me limitations. I've always lead a life that screamed past Go and now I have to read all the warning signs and actually slow down when I see a yellow light.

Oddly enough I don't feel bad about how I've lived this week. I'm proud of myself. Over eating is sin in my life and I've come to realize that it's become such a habitual sin that I've become totally numb and blind to it. I wonder how it's affected my relationship with the Lord. I wonder what he'll continue to show me through this process.

Mike and I are still working out. I can feel myself getting so much stronger and my clothes is starting to fit a little differently. Exciting, huh?!?!

I love each you! I love each comment that is posted and each email that is sent. Please, know that this is not only my victory but ours. You are my cloud of witnesses so hold me accountable in a loving and tender way.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Hebrews 12:1

Marcy -
You should definitely enjoy your mom's cooking while she's here in town... it's all about Moderation - eat it, just don't eat too much of it!! Feel free to save any leftovers for me!!

So I commend the enjoyment of life, because nothing is better for a man under the sun than to eat and drink and be glad. Then joy will accompany him in his work all the days of the life God has given him under the sun. - Ecclesiastes 8:15

Love ya Marcy!!!

Did you stay away from that cake? Marcy?! You had some of that cake when I left didn't you?! I know how you feel about the food, you're going to have to pray for me when I go to San Antonio for labor day weekend. Don't hurt your mom's feelings, just eat in moderation, BUT stay away from that CAKE Missy! love ya
