So, today is a great day for me. A proud moment for. I hit a major milestone. I hit my first 25 pounds lost on my diet. I started three and a half weeks ago...and I have lost 25 pounds!!! So excited. I can't believe it. I believe this is a journey long coming. I have wanted to lose weight for so long. I feel tired all the time and know this isn't what God wants for me. And then in January my husband, Matthew, took hold of a vision. He wanted to start juicing and switch ultimately to a primarily plant based diet. Though we have eaten better than most people over the years...while grains, fruits and good food...we still have kept the weight on. Now, my husband is on a 60 day juice only fast. He has lost 35 pounds already!!! I am doing juice once a day, and then mainly plant based for the rest of the day. I also have been working out almost daily...a workout video and then walking on the other days. I must admit that I feel the best I have in years!!! I am sleeping beautifully, I am not achy or bloated and I have more energy than ever. I feel fabulous!!!! And I am more excited to lose the next 25 pounds. I am on my way to living life to the fullest.
Check out my husbands blog...www.changenowordie.blogspot.com...to see his journey. The picture taken above is from this past Sunday. Doesn't my husband look incredible?

Who knew...16 years ago this journey would look like this? Sixteen years ago these kids weren't even alive...lol. Our oldest actually took the picture, as she was on her way to class at college. Now, truth be told...this picture took several times to take. No, we weren't waiting for any babies to smile...just for my youngest, yes my 10 year old, to get himself together. He still has a funky look on his face, but I will take it. Not everyone is happy all the time. And one day we will laugh at this picture and all of Judah's antics. These treasures have made this journey incredibly difficult, but it's been worth every step. I am so blessed to be their mom. And glad that I get to be their mom. Blessings on this next year!
This girl has been caught taking selfies on our cameras. We don't realize she has taken them until we look at our phones. She is so cute...and so preteen. As we are winding down the teen years with Bryn...we are in the homestretch, we see several more beckoning. Caleb will be 13 in one month and Esther is 11...and she is just bursting to be a teenager. She still has that softness of a little girl, but we keep on seeing glimmers in her life that are totally "TEEN." The entrance of selfies is a prime example. Love it. She has always been our quiet, keep to yourself girl...but all of a sudden she is becoming a social butterfly. Lots of friends...texting them on her tablet ( you should have seen my face when she sent me her first text)...small temper tantrums. It's in the mix..and Matt and I feel a little more prepared this time. We have some experience...we know what to expect...what to pay attention to and what to just ignore. By time we are done with this load of kid…
I am back to this blog. I switched over a year ago and I didn't like it too much. So, I am back here. I am wanting and needing to write again. I am heading into a different season with my kids...they are getting bigger by the minute and they don't need me as much. I am not sure how to walk this out. It's a strange place to be. So, what's next? I am not sure, honestly. This has been one of the hardest years of my life. Losing my mom this past October has shaken me to the core...and I am such a different person. I am trying to find my place, and see what is next. The season is changing, but just not sure where I am going. Hold on tight!!!!
