Alright how many of you let other people dictate how you feel? Come on now I know there are more of you than that! Me included!!! We have those irritating people in our lives that think only THEY KNOW whats Best for US right? Wrong! I get so tired of people that try to tell you what you should or should not do or put you down for a tiny victory to them but a HUGE one to you!!! It angers me intently and sometimes I would let that dictate my weight loss. Yes I would sometimes QUIT trying to lose weight based on what a loved one my have said. I have struggled hard for over ten years trying to lose weight that I finally have people in my life that encourage me. So when I have one of those mountains to share that I have beaten - I share it with them! I quit sharing things with those happiness stealers and focus on the positive. I have had enough negative in my life that I need to look for the positive.
I have one person that I can think of in particular who LOVES to put me down and that has had a direct and significant affect on my life. Before God and I met I let this person literally rule my life - every single area. After I came to know God on a very personal level, I started looking for people that were uplifting and would stick through the thick and thin. Now I realize I CAN DO IT!!! You can too and I am in this for the long haul. If you ever need somoene to talk to that understands...I am always here to lend an ear or to just pray with you!
