Easter is Sunday. Have you prepared your heart for worship this week? Have you invited anyone to join you?
I am anticipating a wonderful day of worship as we celebrate our Risen Lord! Hallelujah, Christ is not in the grave, He is risen!
I am looking forward to worshiping with you on Sunday.

Don't Lose Your Focus

Hey Losers,

How is it going? Are you still going strong or have you lost some of your focus? Tonight I saw that several people didn't weigh in. Granted, I am aware that several members are out of state or even out of the country, but we still had several others that did not weigh in. You've got to remember that you are part of a team and your team is depending on you to give your best effort week-by-week. We all know that this is a fun competition, but you have made a commitment to your team and, more importantly, to God, to work on making your body a more fit temple. Have you fallen into a ditch? If so, climb out, dust yourself off, and get back on the road.
I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT! I am praying for you.

"Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross,despising the shame, and has sad down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that YOU will not grow weary and lose heart." Hebrews 12:1-3 NASB

Bethel's Biggest Loser...

Are you walking the talk...with your diet, exercise, and spiritual life?
Ponder on that this week...

Wednesday, March 10, 2010


Hey Losers,

Tonight was a great night for Bethel's Biggest Loser! We have lost 415.8 pounds so far in this contest. I look forward every week to seeing the victories, and sometimes even the setbacks of your week. Every step helps to shape who we are..,physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Your grit and determination to not let the struggle of your weight and your health defeat you is inspiring. You are just like the Energizer keep going and going and going. Continue to make good choices in your diet, your exercise, and your prayer life. If you slip up, don't be defeated...get up and get back at it with more determination that ever. You can do this, I know you can. I am proud of you. Keep it up.

Did you catch Biggest Loser tonight?

I hope you are taking to watch The Biggest Loser on Tuesday nights. It is such an inspiration to watch people just like us work toward becoming healthier. Of course, you have to take into account that they are at a ranch that lets them exercise many hours every day, keeps the temptation foods mostly out of sight, and teaches them healthy habits. This week was interesting because they had to participate in an 8 hour per day work week. They had to pack their own lunches to take and then had to fit their exercise in around their workday. On top of that, the 24-hour gym had a closing time...7:30. It was good to watch their decisions to help them account for working and being tired from their day and having to fit in gym time. They did well this week and gave a good example of how to get your workout in and how to eat healthy. On one day Sam forgot his lunch at home and checked out the vending healthy options there. Luckily, Stephanie remembered seeing a Subway down the street, so he was able to go there for a healthy meal. All good thoughts for those of us living the challenge of weight loss and healthy choices.

How were your decisions this week? It's last chance workout time...get it in before weigh-in time and ...I'll see you at the scale.

I count it all gain when my muscles are sore after my workout, because I know that by working out at a different intensity, that I am perfecting my body into a fit temple for Christ, which is my goal.
Enough said.

Everyone, be sure to pick up your Bethel's Biggest Loser t-shirts on Wednesday. They look great and I am excited to see you all wearing them.
It's last chance workout time...what are you going to do? Be sure to get some exercise in tomorrow.
How have you done this week? Is your momentum high or low? Are you sticking to your plan or have you fudged a little? I hope you are standing strong and remaining positive. I hope you are being an encourager to someone else. This game is all about teamwork...not just for your actual team, but for all those in our contest. The real goal is getting ourselves, our families, and our friends to have a fit body, ready for service for our Lord. Encourage, praise, cheer, rejoice, support one another. I am proud of you all and am looking forward to Wednesday.

See you at the scale.
