Disappointment is apart of life, we can never escape it, the only thing we have control of is how we react to the disappointment. In the past I have eaten what ever I wanted because at the time it felt good, it was a temporary comfort to my situation. I can’t say that I have mastered eating for comfort, because I haven’t. This week I think I did really well with my disappointments. I had a lot of great things that happened and I really try to focus on the good. Sometimes I think It would be so easy to just give up, because this is the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life. It is a constant battle!!! But, I choose to wake up everyday and put good things in my body. I choose to walk when my feet are tired. I choose to continue on this journey because my life is worth saving. It is such a blessing to see the changes that are taking place in my family.
This week I have lost 4.8 pounds, I am down to 263.2 with a total weight loss of 45.8 pounds!! My hope was to be out of the 60’s by now, but last week was not so great. One day, hour, min, second at a time, I’ll get there:) FYI I have already secured $400 towards my weight loss challenge, just a reminder that all money will be donated to the Blue Slide Project. If you would like to donate or want more information about the project please visit http://www.facebook.com/TheBlueSlideProject
For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. Romans 7:18-19 After I wrote my blog this morning about my success, I over indulged during lunch, grrrr! I am human and I am not afraid to share my struggles with you. If it were easy, I would have lost the weight a long time ago.
