I'm an Apostolic Pentecostal Christian, a minister's wife (he's working on his local license), a Sunday school teacher and a stay at home mom. I have three children so far, with the promise of a fourth. My husband and I homeschool our kids. God delivered me from depression in the winter of 2012/2013, after having dealt with it for 22 years. There are times I still fall back into old mindsets and I have to rely on God to bring me back out of the pits I've created but deliverance is a process. My weight does not help me one bit. I went from 320 pounds to 182 pounds from 2012 to 2016, but then I gained it all back except 5 lbs in 2 years time. In 2019, I got rid of 14 pounds and in 2020, I got rid of 12 pounds. I'm focusing on losing it slowly because that's what works for me. I deal with chronic pain every day and I do not take medications because they are a trigger for me from my past 22 year long depression that God delivered me from. I listen to my body's cues and only do what I can for fitness. It's the whole eating thing that I'm slowly conquering.

    Hi there! Thanks for swinging by my blog and posting. It is always nice to know there is someone out there that can relate to me.

    I like your attitude about the baby steps. That is a great way to build up motivation and momentum. Once you take those first few steps, it'll be hard to stop. Just like your baby reference, once my kids started going, there was no stopping them!
