3 1/2 years and 60 pounds ago...

I found this picture today on facebook. It was from February 2009. Ian was about 5 months old and I was back to my pre-pregnancy weight. Look at how skinny my face is! I want to be there again. I started reading a book for a book study that our FLOCK (aka Sunday School) ladies are doing. It is called Made To Crave. It is really encouraging me in my weight loss journey. I want to crave God, not food. As she said in the book, "we crave what we eat". WOW, so simple, yet so deep. 

So my new motto is Made to Crave! Let's do it friends, let's get closer to God and closer to being the person he wants us to be!

I hope this book study is the inspiration you need to reach your goal!! I read the book last year...it's a good read! I think doing it in a group will be great, you'll have input from others about how to put it into practical application in your life...that's the only thing I felt the book was lacking! Good luck on the journey!
