    Hey, thanks so much for the mention. What a great site – I’m so glad you found me so that I could find you!

    No, we’re not Amish. We ARE Plain Christian, and my very best friend is Old Order Mennonite. 🙂 I’m afraid that I just can’t go without my technology. However, we try to judge everything based upon the same criteria as our Mennonite friends – will this (tool, book, activity, etc) help or hinder our Christian walk and our healthy relationships?

    God bless!

    Kevin forget those people…..I think you are doing good on your diet, but not so sure about the choc. milk tho ! How much sugar does it have in it ?
    Males are only suppose to have no more than 9 tsps. of sugar a day…(women – 6 tsps …. and one 12 oz. can of soda contains 11 tsps. of added sugar….plus all the other ingredients in the sodas are not good for you…..
    People eat too much sugar that is the bottom line….(me included ) but I am watching and doing a lot better, I don’t need it either…..sugar is the worst thing you can put in your body…..what is wrong with JUST WATER ? If you would drink more water, you would feel better and be healthier……this is what I drink all day…..I drink a glass first thing when I get up, and all thru the day, and last thing I do before I go to bed is have another glass…..we all need more water…..sugar is like a drug…..we get hooked on it…. this article was online in HEART HEALTH ……if you would like to check it out……

    Also forgot to mention, I think a lot of us are interested in your weight loss, give us somewhere to comment back to you…..and I agree if those people aren’t interested in hearing about it, skip it…..I do that when I go to other blogs and they have alcoholic desserts, and drinks,etc…..I just skip it…….

    So give us a place to comment back to you….we all want to support you, as you are trying and that’s more than a lot of people who should be doing what you’re doing and not…..

    Hi Kevin. Thank you so much for mentioning me on your blog. I live in Holmes County, Ohio. The Amish children you saw in that photo are my husband’s 1st cousins once removed and they are of the old order church. As long as I’ve known them, their moms have been dressing them in all shades of colors to go with the seasons and their church is fine with it. I was just having a conversation with my father-in-law the other day about how dark blue used to be the main color Amish men wore. My how times have changed.
