Christmas was a wonderful time at the Hechler Home! We didn't have tons of presents under our tree but, we had the most important "presents" of all. My Momma was with us, out of the hospital, and well on her way to recovery. We had health, happiness and the love of God! What more could you possibly need?
I did splurge a little too much during the two days of festivities. It has been hard to get back on track but, I am praying once again for God to give me the self control I need to continue my journey. "Like a city whose walls are broken down is a man who lacks self-control." Proverbs 25:28.
I know that I can do this. I know that I have to do this. When I feel like giving up, I begin thinking of my other options and they aren't pretty. I have been on many weight loss journeys and this is usually the time I give up. Once I have lost that first 30 - 40 pounds and I feel pretty confident that I can eat this and get by or skip this day to workout. Then before I know it I have gained it all back plus 30 more to boot.
At least this time I recognize the signs and I refuse to go back. Sparkpeople has been such a source of help and inspiration to me. I did avoid logging my food for a couple days because I knew it wasn't pretty..haha. I finally logged Saturday and I saw the mistakes I made and Sunday I did much better.
I am finished rambling so in closing, Keep up the good work. Don't be sidetracked! You can do this! My friend left this scripture for me, "He that has started a good work in you will continue it until the day of Jesus Christ" (Phil 1:6) God is good and will continue to supply you and I with the "self control" we need to continue on, One Day At a Time!
Love and Blessings,
