My husband reminded me that I have not reported on my weight in a few weeks, I can take this information and make many assumptions. I am fortunate in knowing that he loves me whether I am fat or skinny; So I am simply excited that he is not just reading my posts, he is really trying to understand and support me. With that being said I have reached the weight of 232.2. Although I am pleased with the fact that I have lost 26 pounds, I know I need to step it up and work a bit harder at this.
Everyday is a new beginning, wouldn’t you agree? I just read a quote today, by an unknown author, it read “If it matters to you, you will make it happen. If it doesn’t, you will make excuses.” I found this quite profound, and can be used in every area my life, especially my weight and health. I have been so blessed that God has always surrounded me with people that love me regardless of my weight or size. The challenging side to that is I had to make it matter, and I have not. I realize that I am a very poor example to my children in the area of taking care of myself. So, a new beginning!!
I have set a new goal for myself; Are you ready, this is a big one? By May 31st (of this year, not next) I plan to be under 200 pounds. 3 months and 30 pounds!! I know it can be done if I make it matter, so that is precisely what I plan to do.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
