I WANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU TODAY THAT EVEN THOUGH I HAVE NOT BEEN ACTIVE ON SPARK I AM NOT DEFEATED. I HAVE HAD SOME HEALTH SET BACKS BUT KEPT DETERMINED TO BE MADE WHOLE. FOR THE FIRST 2 YEARS I WAS SICK I COULDN'T HARDLY WALK.. WHEN I FIRST STARTED SPARK I WOULD WALK IN PLACE 5-10 MINUTES A DAY. IT TOOK A FULL 3 YEARS TO WALK AT A FASTER PACE ..IT IS NOW 4.5 YEARS SINCE I BECAME SICK. I WAS IN KENTUCKY THIS PAST MONTH AND MY SISTER SAID WOW YOU ARE SO MUCH SMALLER NOW AND I THOUGHT SHE IS JUST SAYING THAT TO MAKE ME FEEL GOOD. SHE SAID LOOK AT THE PICTURES COMPARED TO EVEN JUST 1 YEAR AGO AND I LOOKED AND ALL I SAW WAS A FAT GIRL.. I HEARD THE LORD SAY LOOK AGAIN SO I LOOKED AGAIN AND I STARTED TO CRY FOR THE FIRST TIME I DID SEE ME SMALLER. SHE TOOK ME SHOPPING BECAUSE MY CLOTHES BEGAN TO HANG ON ME AND I STARTED AT A TIGHT WOMEN 16 AND SHE GOT A SIZE 8 AND SIZE 10 I THOUGHT IS SHE ON SOMETHING? IS SHE CRAZY I CANT GET INTO THAT SIZE. WHEN I SLIPPED ON THE 10 IT WAS ACTUALLY LOOSE AND I STOOD IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MALL AND CRIED.. SHE GOT A JUNIOR 8 AND IT FIT, I THOUGHT IT MUST BE MIS TAGGED LOL. .... EVEN THOUGH MY SCALE SAYS A HIGHER NUMBER THAN I LIKE. MY BODY IS LEANER AND STRONGER. THIS MORNING IN PRAYER I HEARD THE HOLY SPIRIT SPEAK TO ME AND SAID THE ENEMY HAS NOT DEFEATED YOU BUT YOU HAVE TRIED TO DEFEAT YOU! SOMETIMES WE CAN BE OUR WORST CRITIC OUR WORST FRIEND.. NOW TODAY I AM NOT DEFEATED I DID A 60 MINUTE FULL WORKOUT.(MODIFIED YES BECAUSE OF DISABILITY) BUT IM DOING WHAT I COULDN'T DO JUST LAST YEAR.... I WILL POST NEW PICTURES SOON ...
