I have been blessed so much over the last month. For 10 years, I have been struggling with my weight on a whole new level since my thyroid surgery. I am one of those people who believes that God can do anything. So for those 10 years, I have believed that God was gonna one day make a way for me to become me again and lose all this weight. A few months ago, a girl asked me you still walking? What she meant was and I caught it was, goodness gracious you big...you must have given up...At least that is what I heard. I told her yes, I am still walking but I have a thyroid condition and if I lose a few pounds in 2 months, I gain it right back in a week if I fall off the wagon but "I have come to the point of acceptance". She said, that is so disgusting. I had in fact come to some point of acceptance and I began to tell myself and to tell God, "I know you can do anything but this", just in the back of my mind.
Fast forward to now when I have found out that I have insulin resistance also and that is the real reason for the belly fat and that there are meds that enable you to get rid of the carbs that insulin resistance wants to hold on to. Usually a dr. has hell to get me to take meds. but I was at the point where I was willing. I was willing to take the meds, I was willing to give up the white bread and the potatoes and limit white rice (what can I say red beans and rice is a staple in Baton Rouge). And that is what God was waiting on....for me to do my part. Now that I am probably about 20 lbs lighter. I feel good. I'm happy again, I'm dancing.....I am ashamed for that still small voice that said, God can do anything but this....and now I Just Wanna Stay Faithful....no matter what the challenge....because HE is who He is....He never changes....but we do! and maybe you are going through a challenge...Know that God can and He Will...but He knows when we are really ready to pay the price that is necessary What good does it do us to go back and forth in losing weight....I wasn't ready before....you see how even now I am still holding on to my white rice....but I like all of us are a work in progress. I can't wait to report back to you along the way....and I definitely can't wait to see that lady again....just to watch her expression when I get to 50 pounds down or 80.....
Be Blessed and Thanks for reading my blog...WE CAN DO ALL THINGS THRU CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS US!!!!
