I've Done It!

I've pledged to loose 30 pounds on the "Pound to Pound" Biggest Loser Challenge.

49 million Americans struggled to get enough to eat in 2008, the highest total in 14 years.

Biggest Looser (my favorite reality show)is encouraging Americans to fight hunger in their own communities and help Feeding America deliver millions of pounds of groceries to local food banks by joining the Pound For Pound Challenge.

You can pledge to lose weight online at

For every pound lost, General Mills will donate $0.14 to Feeding America, enough to deliver one pound of groceries to a local food bank.

Last year the Pound For Pound Challenge helped deliver more than 3.5 million pounds of groceries to local food banks.

This is the second year of the Pound For Pound Challenge and it kicked off this week. There is still time to pledge.

You can make a difference in your life, as well as the lives of those in your community.

Stay tune and I'll keep you up-to-date with how I do.....meanwhile - if your in the process of dieting, eating healthier, or getting fit..GO PLEDGE!!!!

Hi, Sherlyn,

Thank you for your honesty in your comment on my blog. I really believe that there is power to be experienced when more and more women speak out about the struggles they are having. When we all begin to do that, the illusion that we all have to be perfect comes crashing down, and we can find support and camaraderie from other women who are just where we are.

In any case, hang in there. Be encouraged in knowing that you definitely are not alone in anything you're going through, and remember ALWAYS that we have a God who is more than able to carry it all for us....IF we turn it over to Him.

Blessings to you and your beautiful family. Little Trinity is gorgeous, and I have every confidence that God chose you to be her mama for a specific reason. He wouldn't have entrusted her to you if He didn't know you could handle it.

Have a wonderful Saturday.
