Mary's Journey

My starting weight many years ago was 308. I have to remember how far I have come. I am in this for the long-haul. The problem most of us- especially women, is that we look at our imperfect bodies and find all the things we wish were better. I have come to the realization that we become our own worst enemy in the battle to lose weight. How many times have I let a few days of overendulgence cause me to totally lose my courage to go on?

My starting weight many years ago was 308. I have to remember how far I have come. I am in this for the long-haul. The problem most of us- especially women, is that we look at our imperfect bodies and find all the things we wish were better. I have come to the realization that we become our own worst enemy in the battle to lose weight. How many times have I let a few days of overendulgence cause me to totally lose my courage to go on? Not any more. I am determined to keep going, even when I have less than perfect days or weeks or months. This is a lifestyle, not a diet. This is a fitness program, not a contest. God is for me, so who can be against me?
