It's usually easy for me to stay focused on healthy living rather than weight loss, but over the last couple of weeks the weight has been coming off so fast that I've come to enjoy, and even expect it, more than I ought. The last few days I've been "flat-lined" on the scale and found myself particularly disappointed this morning.
But then I realized that I am still eating well, exercising regularly, enjoying my developing lifestyle and the scale is simply one measurement--and not the most important one. So I went onto Spark People this morning and found a great article on our tenuous relationship to the scale and it really helped me turn my mindset around. I've come to see afresh that loving the Lord with all my heart is the key to life, that stewarding my body well is one act of obedience toward Him, that weight is but one measurement of how I'm doing with that, and again it's not the most important measurement.
Thanks, Lord, for your help this morning!
