Stepping Out In Faith

Hey - two posts in one day! That is something that I have not done in a long time. But I had a great idea about a post and I just had to share.
*********************************
A couple to even several years ago, I found a great red and white sleeveless St. Johns Bay summer top. And it probably only cost me about $3.99. I loved it! I got plenty of wear out of it, until yesterday.....

It's a sad story really. I mean - I am wearing my favorite top. And the fact that I have lost about 10 pounds had made it fit me even better than before, made it even more sad when the unthinkable happened...

I was taking a bag of trash out the door and my storm door handle, maybe, grabbed the top and tore...probably a 5 inch section of the top.....

I was so sad. My sister suggested that I check Ebay out to see if I could find another one. Well I found 2 - one was a 3X like the one I was wearing, but it was black and white. Then I found a 2X one that was white and navy. I debated back and forth on should I get one? If so what size? And then I had a hard time with paying the amount of money they were asking - it was well over the 3.99 I had paid for my red and white one.

Well I ended up listening to a great program on the radio on my way home from a trip to town. And the man was speaking about weight loss and that if you believe you can - you can. And if you believe you can't - you won't. And well... I decided that I would step out in faith and order the 2X top and continue to work towards wearing it. It is brand new with tag and I am so excited that it is navy blue and white- Navy is one of my favorite colors to wear.  Here is a photo of it:
 
I also got a great idea about another blog post that I am hoping to get written up by next week called "The HOV Lane to Weight Loss" be sure to keep on eye out for that one it is sure to be good!
