I have finally lost 20 pounds and I am so happy about that. I have a lot more to lose, but for me, this 20 lbs. represents so much. It means that I can do this and more. It means that I don't have to beat myself up if I don't lose anything for a week. I means that I can enjoy eating whatever I choose and not feel guilty about it. It means I am getting healthier for my family as well as myself. And it means that I will be able to do all the things that God has for me to do with energy and strength and in the best way possible. I want to be a light shining in the dark for others that feel that they are not worth anything and so there is no reason to lose the weight or to get healthier. Because God has done this for me. For it is not by my strength, but by His that I have accomplished this. And I give Him all the glory for it. He makes me see what I can do every day and I want to do so much! God is Good..............All the time!
And so I say to all of you that are along on this journey with me.....NEVER GIVE UP! You can do it. God Bless all of you.
