I just read this inspiring blog post – The real reason I achieved my dream body – http://wp.me/p7GYRF-s . She reminded me of something very important. The importance of davening about my weight loss. As one of my Rabbonim in Sem Rabbi Yosef Cowan used to say “Nothing is too big for Hashem and nothing is too small”. I need to remember to daven for help with maintaining this enthusiasm and that it should actually work and I will, please G-d, get to a healthy size in a healthy way. That I will be a good example to my children.  A very important reminder. Because as we teach our children “Do your best and Hashem will do the rest”. Now I just need to do my best!
