Three Things Thursday

1. I'm looking forward to seeing my husband in less than 24 hours!!! He's been out of town for two (very long) weeks! I'm also looking forward to a women's retreat hosted by my church this weekend. It is my first retreat like this as an adult, and I'm looking forward to fellowship with other women, a few friends, and growing in my faith with them. It will be my first time away from my kiddo overnight, but I'm just fine with that so I said, my DH has been out of town for two weeks, I'm ready for a break.

2. I REALLY want to lose 1.2 pounds this week to hit my -75 mini-goal while my DH is in town so he can celebrate with me. REALLY really really Really want it!!!  Of course, TOM is due to arrive within the next week so who knows what that will mean. I'm drinking my water like crazy to try my best to combat any water retention! Lord, please let it be!

3. I have found myself talking with many friends, some family, and some strangers about joining Weight Watchers and helping them with questions and such. I find it extremely satisfying and am praying about it. Is God leading me to do something like this as my profession? I'm not sure at this point, but I'm definitely feeling a nudge. To date, 23 people, that I'm aware of, have joined WW since I've become more vocal about my efforts. To know that I've inspired 23 people to give it a shot and learn to live healthier lives is so rewarding. It keeps me motivated to keep going, too!

How exciting about your women's retreat.

I hope you reach your goal this week, you are doing so awesome and I'm not surprised that you are inspiring others in this area.
I could totally see you doing this as a profession and am excited to see what God had in store for you!

Way to go Annie, I'm so proud of you!

Annie, I just became employed by WW due to my success. I felt the SAME way you did. Besides my Leslie Sansone Walk at Home DVD's (which are truly "Christian" based) and Weight Watchers..I feel God put a call on my life to do something for others in our similar situation with weight. You can see my "story" on Leslie Sansone's page. You are an inspiration to others, Annie!! This blog is terrific!
I"m hoping and praying with you that you hit the goal you wish for this week! Keep us updated!!

God Bless!
