Life and Times of a Single Christian Woman

Okay, so here we go.... My Unusual Life, comes with the good, the not so pretty, and the really not so pretty. LOL!

A Christian single woman's life is not always so much fun.. However, it is always worth it!

So here we go... Is it just me, or does it seem like a lot of men these days, are wanna be players? Why is it so hard for men to be decent? Or is it that they are so used to women settling for less, that it's no big deal to them?

Why is it that women settle? What's the reason for it? Seems like, these days some of us accept almost anything. Is it because we don't know who we are? Is it because we don't know who God created us to be? Is it because we have become so desperate to be with a man? Or is it all of the above?

Whatever it is, how do we change it? How do we turn it around? How do we regain the respect we deserve? Is it too late? Has it gone too far? It seems that believers are more desperate than non-believers. And why is that? Is it because we have committed to a life of celibacy, and the only way to have sex is to get married?

Hmmmm... All of these questions are thought provoking to me. So, I can only speak on my life at this time. There are times in my single life that I absolutely, dislike being single.  I love my girlfriends, but I get tired of doing everything with them, I love my son, but I also want to spend time with someone other than my 12 year old.

I want to get out, have a nice dinner and go to the movies, or go see a play. Something clean, and fun, every once in a while. Is that too much to ask for? LOL! A lot of the times, you can't even have "guy" friends anymore. As most men have some motive to try and sleep with you, Christians and non-Christians alike. 

Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of men in Christ, that love God above all else. And they are good men! But, there are some... (Well, I am not going to judge).

Moral of the story is... Ladies, let's get it together... And men, step it up! One day you will have to answer to our Father, and when you do.. You want Him to say "Well done!", not "Well, son!" And give you a long laundry list of things He would like to discuss with you.

Be Good.. Live Life.. And Above all else... Be Unusual!

One Year of Prep - Day Five

Good Evening Peeps,

Wow, has it been five days already? I kind of had a rough weekend you guys. I have been eating everything in sight. I had an extremely boring weekend, and apparently that's all I can think to do. :-(

I didn't have much going on this weekend; I had a meeting yesterday morning which didn't last very long. And the remainder of the day I laid in bed watching television and eating. Who does that!?! Oh, I do.. That's who!

I had great intentions, I just didn't follow through. So, losing weight is one of my goals this year. I would like to lose about 70lbs. So starting tomorrow, I am making a commitment to myself, all of you, and God to only eat when I am physically hungry.

If I don't get this eating thing under control now, I am going to be 300lbs before I know it. No offense to anyone reading this, and weighs that much. But for me and my life, the life God called me to live - being that big is a no go.

I actually want to be skinny. About 135lbs…

Why Do We Settle for Less...

"I live in quiet desperation every day of my life. Wishing that I could be rescued from this misery I call life. If feels like no one understands me. Not my family, not my friends, not anyone.

I feel like I am trapped in my life, and I can't break free. I have dreams and aspirations, and they all feel like they are ten thousand miles away. I just don't know what to do. I'm currently in a relationship that is far beneath what I deserve, but yet I can't live without him. And it doesn't really matter, because if it wasn't him, it would be someone else.

It's been that way my entire life. Giving all of myself to a man, and getting nothing in return. Giving my body, giving my time, and anything else that is asked of me. At the end of the relationship, when all of my sacrifice has gone unappreciated, I am left with another injury to my soul.

Same story... Different man... Who's Next!?! Who can draw me even further aw…

Why Do Skinny Women Get More Respect...

Okay, let me first start off by saying, I do not think like Monique. I love skinny women. I aspire to be skinny again one day. Who am I kidding, I wasn't skinny... LOL! I was a size 8, and that was comfortable to me. And being a size 14 now, I would pay good money to be a size 8 again. I would probably commit a crime, to be a size 8 again. Kidding, I wouldn't commit a crime.. Or would I.. Hmmmmm :)

Anywho, what brought this on was, my calendar is getting super busy... I'm being pulled into more, and doing more with my business. And my first thought was "I need to drop 50lbs immediately!". What brought that thought on!?! I'll tell you what, I know that smaller women are more respected. People look at skinny women differently in the corporate world.

And, I work to hard, not to be respected. There is more to me than my size, but I don't want people to tune me out, before I even get started. Now, I am secure in myself... Let's NOT get that t…
