I think Preacher Rick hit the nail on the head today - I am not letting go of the past. In my mind, I still see myself as that obese girl. Today is the day I let it go! I am making healthier choices in all areas of my life. The results are now showing. I am happier, healthier and more in love with Jesus than I have ever been.
WOW!!!!!!!!! I can hardly believe it! If there was not a picture, I do not think I would believe it. It is amazing how much I have physically changed. I guess it happens so gradually that I did not see it.
I am almost half way through my weight loss journey. Sometimes things are tough. I know now that I can make it because I am working towards being who God wants me to be. I may not totally see myself where I am today, but God sees everything. He sees my heart, mind, spirit, and health. He helps me when those times are tough (like sopapilla cheesecake at the faculty luncheon - AGAIN! and no I did not eat it - but I thought about it). Together we will finish this journey together.
I wonder if I need to spend some time reflecting on what other areas of my life where I need to let go of the past.
