I have the right support in place to help me succeed.
But while I keep my eyes on the ultimate goal, I know that it's extremely important to focus on the small victories that I accomplish along the way.
I am not this 255 pound person that I've become. My life has been out of control for a long time, and while God has taught me that it's OK to surrender the things that I cannot to control over to Him, my weight is not one of those things.
He has not created me to be 255 pounds. He has not given me food so I can over indulge and try to mask the pain of these past few years. Food has become part of my way of coping with the hard stuff, and I refuse to do it anymore. My dependance needs to be in Him and Him alone.
So, today I celebrate the small victory of beginning to work out again.
I'm not doing anything special or fancy- in fact, I discovered that we have a copy of The Biggest Loser Wii game.
It's amazing what a 28 minute
So, today, I celebrate the small victory of working out again. Tonight, after I weigh in, I celebrate a smaller number on the scale- even if it's just a pound.
I'm so excited to get back to the woman God created me to be.
(On a much different note, we are also celebrating the small victories of my dad's recovery. After discovering more tumors in his femur and hip, he had to go in for surgery to place a rod in his femur to prevent it from fracturing. 3 days post surgery, he is walking again and working on sitting up for longer periods of time! We are hoping to get him HOME very, very soon!!! Continued prayers for his recovery is much appreciated!)
