Hey y’all, welcome!!  I’m so glad you are here to run this marathon with me.  I welcome you to join me on my weight loss journey where I will hopefully share some inspiration and probably a few giggles along the way.  From embarrassing moments, tipping the scales, traveling on plan, meal planning, cooking through the cookbooks, one meal three ways, to how I get my kid to eat the Trim Healthy Mama way- we’re going to talk about ALL the things.  

When I started this blog, I named it Saggy2Sassy, but it just didn’t feel right to me.  While one of my greatest fears about losing weight is saggy skin, I don’t FEEL saggy.  I mean, I know I’m 100% sassy because my Mama always told me so.  Anyways…I started thinking about names and decided on “With Joyful Hearts.”  Why?  

This is one of my favorite scriptures and I have had it hanging on my dining room wall for a couple of years:

They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts…Acts 2:46

It got me thinking about all the other scriptures about joyful hearts and it made me realize how much I want to provide a home and atmosphere where my family can have joyful hearts in all circumstances.   (Even when we’re feeling a little HANGRY.)  Here are some more of my faves:

Go, eat your bread with gladness, and drink your wine with a joyful heart, for God has already approved what you do…Ecclesiastes 9:7

A joyful heart is good medicine…Proverbs 17:22

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me…Psalm 51:10
