I've been slacking the last few weeks, but I haven't given up. I just have not taken the time to discipline myself to eat right, drink my water and excercise. I sure will be glad when the discipline comes naturally! ugh.
I thank God that the old me that would have given up weeks ago and said you will never be able to lose all these fat, is gone! That woman has been gone for the last five months. The new Monica remains and I am not giving up! I am dealing with 20 plus years of unhealthy habits, so I am learning to realize and apprepriate that it will take some time to get fully accustomed to and for it come natural for me. I'm learning patience (which is not my favorite thing to do...wait).
Lord, I will be patient. I pray that you continue to work in me and give me the strength to live a healthier life and to overcome my additions. I want to be a better, healthier person for myself, my children and my husband. I want to teach my children different from how I was raised and taught. I want to be a positive role model for them in more ways than one. I love them with all my heart, they are my world! Amen.
