Dear mom,

Mom I want to let you know how wonderful of a daughter you raised. And no I'm not talking about myself! Tonight Jordan started her job as our youth minister! So exciting! I know that you're in heaven smiling down and being mean with Pride. I am so proud of my little sister and I know that you are too!
David said this morning how exciting is it that Jordan's our youth minister! I said yes I'm so excited too, and then he added and your mom would be so proud!
This job, this role was meant for her! I watched her tonight as she read the Bible to my daughter, along with some of the other children. It was amazing! She really did know her stuff, and she really was teaching the children. Mom, I'm so excited for her and this job, in this role in our church. You raised us in this church, and this church was our home. So I feel like we're at home, and I'm glad that we can raise our children in this church, our home! I'm so excited for her mom, and I know you are too! Thanks for raising us girls up right!

We love you and miss you so much!!

I'm not a either or, I'm a both!

Unfortunately what I mean is I cannot eat healthy and not work out, or work out any whatever I want. To lose weight I mean. Some people can just exerciseand eat  whatever they like, and some people can just eat healthy and not exercise. But for some reason my body does not agree with either of those statements.  Why is that? I mean I know that all of us women are different, but why does it have to be so hard. To lose weight, and then maintain. I have lost a good amount Of weight a total of three times in my lifetime, and I have gained weight a total of three times and I lifetime. It's always an uphill battle. Of course two of those times I was pregnant, but that makes it even harder afterwards to lose the weight. I worked so hard from the beginning of the year until July to lose weight for my vacation, and I pretty much succeeded despite a couple of pounds. But now after back from vacation I let it slip a little and gained a little. So now I'm working my butt off again to try and, work my butt off!  Any other ladies out there feel the same way?
