June 2. I started the diet again yesterday. Ya GOTTA love the scale that second morning: Woah! I’ve already lost FIVE pounds! Man, this is gonna be CAKE! …Mmm. Cake.
Reader’s Digest joke: My friend announced that she had started a diet to lose some pounds. // “Good!” I exclaimed. “I’m ready to start a diet too. We can be dieting buddies and help each other out. When I feel the urge to drive out and get a burger and fries, I’ll call you first.” // “Great!” she replied. “I’ll ride with you.”
Let’s see: Daughter’s wedding in 5 months. Photographer might charge extra for using the wide-angle lens. I’d better stay away from the cake.
Actually, eating less is part of my new financial austerity plan. Time for another joke: There are two sides to my balance sheet: the left side and the right side. On the left side, there is nothing right, and on the right side, there is nothing left!
I confess, I’m at a place of repentance of sloppiness in a few areas: weight, finances, relationships. Day of reckoning. Fork in the road. Turn the tide. Clean slate. Because God has given me faith that Jesus is the Savior (1J5:1), I know He’ll help: “He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.” (Php. 1:6)
“My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.” (Ps. 121:2) So…. “I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.” (Php. 3:14)
Day 2, I welcome you!
