It's Here - The Event You've Been Waiting For...
It’s finally here--the event that so many of you have been asking for… an online support group for Reshaping it All!!
Let’s face it, reshaping our lives can be tough at times, especially difficult when we’re trying to do it alone, but our drive is definitely strengthened when we have the support of friends.
Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. ~ Ecclesiastes 4:12, NIVWhile driving my car the other day, I got to think about how much I’ve slid off the wagon. (I do a lot of car thinking!) Little by little I’ve let one habit slip through the door after another. I started drinking calories again, eating until I was past full, and snacking a little too often. Okay, let’s change that last sentence to read, “Far too often.”
It’s evident in the clothes that I wear, since everything I own is now a little too tight. Finally, I took a good look at myself in the mirror and asked, “What in the world are you doing?” Or as Dr. Phil would say, “How’s that working for you?”
Time to Get Serious
I’ve decided that it was high time to get serious about reshaping my life. I love the glow on Candace’s skin, and she’s not getting it from a bottle of liquid foundation—I’ve seen it up close. It comes from drinking water and eating wholesome food. I also love the energy level that comes to those who are eating just enough of the right food, and I’m tired of feeling groggy from an overload of carbs. Finally I want to get back down to a medium size so that I’ll comfortable in the clothes that I love, and get in shape for Relevant 11! Is that too much to ask? I don’t think so.
Someone asked me today how faith plays a part in my journey of Reshaping it All. I got to thinking about that question this afternoon, and I realized that keeping my eyes on God and trusting Him through the journey helps keep my eyes off the world and gets me focused on Him. That’s my ultimate desire in all that I do, so it only makes sense to apply the same mindset when reshaping my health. More of you, Lord—less of me!
When I told Candace that I wanted to start this journey with you, she was right on board with the idea, In fact she's excited and looking forward to popping in when she can with a video or an article to encourage us along. I also know that she’ll be checking in on our progress to cheer us along.
Why 65 Days?
65 Days gives us enough time to break old habits, incorporate new ones and gain some momentum. We don’t want to give up on each other when we’re just getting started.
What will Happen?
We will post articles every day for the next 65 days. Some of them will be videos, some will be challenges, and some will be guest posts, but each week we’ll move through two chapters of the book together.
Candace and I have added a chat box to the sidebar. We’d love you all to leave messages when you stop by so that we can get to know you a little better, and encourage you every step of the way!!
If you’re looking for interaction, inspiration, and motivation… THIS is the place to be May 1st – July 4th, 2011.
