I was not going to post anything on my actual weight until May 31st, as that is the day of the “big goal”. I have had several friends say they have not seen me post on my weight in awhile, so I will give you all a sneak peak and you can celebrate the smaller goal of breaking out of the 230’s.
The best part of reaching this small goal is that I am encouraged to continue doing what I am doing, and trying a little something more to help push the excess weight into my past.
This month, I am choosing to focus on the fruit of the spirit “LOVE”…. Oh, you would think this is an easy one, it’s not. I love my husband, I love my children, I love my family, I love my friends, and I even work hard at loving my enemies! On the other hand, I do not love myself. I wonder sometimes, what I have done in this life that repulses me so much; Trying to figure out a way to like myself is a challenge, allowing me to love myself will take some focused effort.
If you are a praying person, I ask from you this: Pray for me, and all the ladies that put their thoughts and feeling out for the world to scrutinize. Ask God to fill us with a love for ourselves that he desires for us to have. Pray that the love for myself does not come from my external changes, but for my emotional and spiritual successes.
I know I can do all things through Him (Phil 4:13), He tells me that; I know that He Loves me (John 3:16). I also know that He dwells in me, therefore I should recognize and love Jesus that lives in me.
Until next week friends… Love to you all!
