Down 50 and 76

You may have noticed I've changed the photo on the blog. The reason being that we have taken on a new form. You see, Tony has lost 76 pounds, and I have lost 50! Next week we have a family photo session scheduled, so until then, the pic of the kids will have to do as the header.

I have been MIA for a while for good reason. Fall is always a busy season for our family. BIG SWITCH occurs in the Fall (our big 3 week youth event), and this year we added a new way of life. We are getting healthy, once. and. for. all. We will never go back. We have photos to remember the unhealthy life we led. The addiction to food is gone for good. We got rid of 14 garbage bags full of "fat" clothes. I am writing this post to give all my readers a sort of "heads up". When the new photos are posted, you may not recognize us. Most days we don't recognize ourselves. We are so excited about teaching our children, and leaving them a legacy of health.

Another thing we added this fall is my new Scentsy business. It has kept me even busier that before, but it is so much fun! It is going great. God is blessing us so much through Scentsy, and I can't wait to see where our lives will be this time next year. If you want to look at the online catalog, items can ship directly to your home. It's the best time of year to host a party. Scentsy makes awesome gifts, too!

I have been going to a women's bible study at a local church every Monday morning. I signed up in support of a friend, and have received so much out of it. It has given me the boost in my spiritual life that I needed in this season. I am so grateful for the women that God has placed in my life!

We are so excited about our new journey. Our marriage is stronger than it has ever been. Our kids are growing and learning new things every day. We are learning so many things through this diet/lifestyle change that we never thought possible. Before and after pics will come when we go to the maintain part of our diet. I'll post more on how we lost the weight later.

Keep us in your prayers! I'll try not to be so "lost in cyberspace" the next couple months. Family pics to come soon!

Have a safe, fun, and happy Halloween!

Summertime Steadiness

Is anyone else having trouble finding routine in the craziness that is summer 2020? I am a planner. Yes, I still carry around a paper planne...
