That is what my ob/gyn has prescribed me to do. I'm supposed to lose 5 pounds a month for the next year...totally in a wopping 60 pounds by August or September of '07.


Ok...ok...he didn't REALLY say it quite like that, but he wasn't at all sincere like my ob/gyn.

And...My nice doc said that I should have NO problem conceiving next year! (unless the "infertility gremlin" wants to hang out and play) But, when I do get prego...I'll have to be on an extremely strict diet. Well...BOO HISSY TO THAT!

So, he suggested that I try to lose 5 pounds a month for the next year.

That doesn't seem un-bearable. But, then again...I AM the one that said in January that I was going make this the year of "life style changes". No change yet...and the year is coming to a close. What a typical "Shelli" thing to announce.

Oh...I'm such a dreamer.

Wacko?...or just more proof???

Ok...a couple of blogs ago (Knock Knock...who's there?...Its Jesus), I wrote about all the things happening in the world that kind of make you go "huh...is Jesus really coming soon"? Well, as the scriptures say: who knows?...no one will no the day nor the hour. But...there WILL be signs.

Well, today, on THE TODAY SHOW, I saw a VERY interesting story about a man named Jose Luis De Jesus Miranda. This man (from Guatamala or something) is a preacher in Miami Florida and has established his ministry "Growing in Grace" throughout the world now. It is in numerous different countries across the planet. What's the big deal about that??? Well...nothing except that the man claims TO BE JESUS!!!! He claims that Christ was reincarnated into him in the late 70's, that all the churches throughout the world have interpreted scriptures wrong, that the preachers of the world are liars, that there is no more sin since the crucifixion, and that Satan no longer exists AT ALL.

Just read, and get your own view...

Here we go:



So...just another wacko?...or just another sign?

Fridays...a mystery of sorts.

Roses are red...violets are blue...I'm bored at work...what about you?

Hard work. Do I do it?...most of the time. But, during the summer, I find my self baby sitting the bank branch and being bored to tears. Especially on Fridays when the guys need to "make some calls with important clients on the golf course"...or..."gotta go to another afternoon conference at the country club". Please! Give me break!

See...there always has to be a loan officer here at the branch, but...I really think that I need to start taking my female clients "on important calls to the nail salon" on Friday afternoons.

I mean...really! What would they do if I, all of the sudden, said "I'm gone guys...taking a client to the salon". Or..."Guys, I've got a 3pm massage at the Day Spa down the road. I think I'm going to get their business...so, wish me luck."

Is the idea of taking off early on a Friday to impress a future client or customer, out of the question for women? Is the idea of friendly business outings ONLY for men??? And...I like golf...sure, I don't know how to play it...but, I'm sure I'd like it. Why can't I buy a set of golf clubs and expense them? I don't care if they have my bank logo on them.

Now...don't get me wrong...I'm not mad. I mean, that is pretty awesome...I AM JEALOUS. There's a difference. I'm a loan officer...I should be able to do this too.

...maybe some day.

Did the Blogger Die?

Is it just because of the summer season?
Is it just a fad that is dying?
Does no one have an interesting story?
Are we all too lazy?
Has everyone moved on to My Space?

...what has happened to us? We were bloggers and we were proud. Now?...we hardly ever blog anymore.

Did the Blogger Die?

Knock Knock , Who's there?...ITS JESUS!!!!!!!

Ok, so…not to get all “Jack VanImpe” on you…but, does anyone else out there think that maybe…JUST MAYBE…we could be in the “tribulation” times?

I mean…I’ve never been one of these people that stand on the street corner and preach “THE END IS NEAR” or anything like that…and, really, if you look at history…there have been numerous times that we could have said “JESUS IS COMING TOMORROW”. Actually, the bible says no one will know the day or hour...but there WILL be signs. And, I know that there are MANY different interpretations on when our “rapture” (by the way…that word is not even in the bible) will happen. Some say it will happen before the tribulation time, some say it will happen mid-tribulation time, some say it will happen post-tribulation time, and some say…there wont be a “rapture” at all. That we will remain on this earth, but that God will “recreate” it into a “new earth”, basically like the Garden of Eden. Beautiful, and without Sin.


With all that being said, I’m finding myself slightly intrigued by what is going on in the world:

1. Global Warming is at an all time high. If we continue on the path that we are on, we will be having 130 degree summers. Science is proving this day by day. If you haven’t seen “An Inconvenient Truth”…GO SEE IT! Its very informational. Could God be in the middle of destroying Earth, just to provide his new one?

2. The War in Iraq. Sure, I don’t know exactly where I “stand” on the whole “bring our troops home” thing, but, I DO think its interesting that nearly ALL of the muslim countries are starting to come up in arms.

3. This kid named “Adam” that was on 20/20 the other day. He’s not in America…he lives somewhere else, but he’s traveling all over the world. What’s the big deal about him???...Well, he is healing people and performing miracles and wonders left and right. See…he was “visited by a black bird” when he was a kid that told him “all the secrets of the universe and how to control it”. His parents have this on video showing him in a trance just staring at this bird for hours and hours. He’s now 19 years old. If this guy raises somebody from the dead (see the book of Revelation), I’m HEADED FOR THE HILLS!!!!!!!!!!

4. And of course…the latest. Israel and Lebanon. If the Lebanon troops blow up the “temple” in Israel…EVERYONE SHOULD START SHOUTING HALLELUJAH, JESUS IS COMING!!!! Because, isn’t one of the “final signs” the rebuilding of the temple?

So, I’m not exactly “freaked out”, because…no matter what…I’m trusting in my savior Jesus Christ. But WOW…it IS kind of cool to think about.

…so, what do YOU THINK????
