The Edge of Glory

I made it back from Florida and got right back on track.....yay!!!

A few minutes ago I was folding laundry and listening to a song by Lady GaGa called The Edge of Glory. It reminded me of last summer when I was trying to get cast to be on the Biggest Loser. It became my kind of theme song. It was on the radio all summer and seemed to play just for me sometimes. Like right after I got off the phone with Abby, who applied with me,or when we got back in the car after the casting call. I even posted it on one of the casting directors FB walls.

Anyways, THIS time when I heard this song it was nice to enjoy it in a different light. I immidiatley thought I needed to tell you all that I am not on the EDGE of glory any longer. NO, I didn't get cast on the show and get to reach my weight loss goals and get to be the one who inspires by my success or by the success of the show.

However, I have come to realize that I do not NEED the show to lose the weight, I really thought I did, I have honesly tried EVERY OTHER ROUTE!! But today I was finally able to enjoy the song and drift into my own thoughts about what it is that I am looking for. I am not looking for glory or fame, and I am thankful to be where God has allowed me to be. In the end, I will get to my goal weight and give God the glory all that he has given me and the person he has created me to be and the grace that he has given me.

Do you have a theme song? :)

I'm off to get ready to try another Zumba class with Dawn! Wish us luck! Weigh in tomorrow!!



  1. LOL. My theme song? 'I gotta run!' from the musical Edges which really has nothing to do with actually running but thinking what everyone else thinks is right for me. boy, I could write a post on that.

  2. I would like to read it, if you did write about it <3
