Another great day in the books. First we had a new lady join us in our workout class. And I was just telling her a little about myself, like we do when we have new people. I told her how in February I weighed 280 pounds and so far I had lost about 96. And she said, "Oh you're the one that has lost 100 pounds!" Almost...almost!

Second, I had a check up today with my doctor. And everything is fantastic! Weight: 183 (97 pounds lost), blood pressure: 121/75 (it was 151/100), pulse: 64 (used to be 101). He was super surprised and happy that I lost weight during the holidays. He said to keep on doing what I have been doing, and not to let anyone try to derail my progress. He also told me that I even inspired him to keep getting healthy. I love when people tell me that, knowing that I inspire others, it keeps me going.

And best of all, my one and only daughter's 10th birthday is this Sunday, but we decided to celebrate tonight at Pizza Hut. When I got ready to make her cake I was going to use applesauce for oil, and egg substitute for the eggs. But I figured what the heck it's her birthday cake! So I made it according to the package directions. And yes I had a piece of birthday cake! So blessed, and truly happy.

Letty ..... You have a new song to sing, and the world needs to hear the song. It's a song of hope and health. It's my hope that you sing and sing and sing it again, because over time you become that song. I think the world attempts to drown our voice .... Insisting that the music of our culture (meaning, making money at the expense of people's health) is what we really want. Remember the song on TV, "Have it your way" ..... In reality it wasn't our way ..... it was twisted view of their way. Sing my friend, sing! The world needs to hear your voice.
