Snoozing

So, I worked last night and slept on and off this morning as I am working tonight. I was awoken at 3:15 by our agency staff who I just love. Anyway, it turns out that if I can not lose the weight, we will be denied by China. I figured this out anyway. Dude, I lost 50 pounds one semester in college by going to the YMCA every morning. I know I can do this again!

Will update later..

You can do it. We just got an email from our agency about some concerns they have with us. We have to have our dossier turned in by April 13. We got fingerprinted today. All I can do is trust God and keep moving forward until HE says stop.

Good luck. The weight thing kinda sucks. Just do it healthy.

Good thing the Chinese are paying attention to the weight of potential adopters of their unwanted children and not such things like free speech or human rights.

Of course you can do it. Have you ever heard of sparkpeople.com? I started using it in April (slacked off in June because my DS3 had surgery), and now I am almost 20 pounds lighter. I don't use it anymore but I highly recommend it. It's free.

Why do they care about your weight? What does that have to do with anything?

I agree with Jeff.
AMy you can do it and I'm praying for you, your future daughter will so so blessed by you and michael. God Bless,

no one has told us this, but I assume the desire of the Chinese government for the American adoptive parents to be fairly healthy is to protect the child from being twice orphaned. Interesting tidbit, the average North Korean is SHRINKING, primarily due to malnutrition because the army gets the food first, wonder how it spells out for the Chinese?

You can do it! I lost 40 lbs last year by cutting out sugar, bread, eating mostly veggies and lean meat, and excercising daily! It can be done. Best wishes.

Hi Amy, I stopped by your other blog during Thurs13 but wanted to come visit this one too ... and so ...

I know you can lose the weight. Just look at every piece of food and say, "Can I eat this and have a baby?" Piece of uh carrot. ;)

If God says to stop moving forward, He'll tell you a side step. Or He'll put you in a holding pattern. Just relax into his promise that he is working for good things.

Oh yeah i know ... easy to say ...

Losing weight is a hard task to do, take it one step at a time. And don't beat yourself up with things you cannot control.
