The second I saw this comparison, I knew I had to share it with you. I have printed it, and will be posting it on my refrigerator. If this doesn’t motivate you to eat healthy and exercise, I don’t know what will! 😘

This link will take you to a PDF version of the photo/quote, should you wish to print it for inspiration!

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 59 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer and author... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 43 years, married 40 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we became grandparents to a beautiful baby girl in 2018!! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~

  1. What a remarkable inspiration she is! I have been preaching this for 25 years! What an excellent, motivating article Tam! It proves if one eats well, (although the nutrients are in the egg yolks), exercises, moves and lives with a positive attitude, it improves every aspect of our life. Even more is the peace I see on her face because of a Christ-like devotion to the real Lord of her life. I also practice what I preach and encourage others to feel as wonderful as I do at almost 70 years old! Thanks for this. Blessings back, ❤

    • I was amazed….many wondered if genes play a role? I personally think so, but doesn’t mean we aren’t to do the best we can with these temples!

      • Oh, yes, genes do play a good part in our make-up. But your reply reminds me of the patient I had who protested, “But it’s in my genes Ellie!!!” until I saw the family dog and it was very overweight as well. HA! We are commanded to be healthy, regardless of our size, Health (and I’ve had some who overcompensate here too)is more important than weight loss as you so readily agree. Blessings back,
