So the interview didn't happen...long story but I still have hope! I've put in over 30 applications so something should turn up....hopefully!! Anyways, I'm still really excited about the 8 week challenge starting tomorrow. I'm going to start today though! Might as well start asap right?? But I just can't count what I do today for the group! Anyways, Jason is going to join me...he wants to do some sort of non food related reward for every week we complete it. Sounds good to me but I don't know what we'd do for rewards... we'll figure something out I suppose!!
I'm really excited about a lot in my life right now and weight loss is going to be the icing on the cake!! I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength as the Bible says and I believe it!! I haven't had much success with weight loss in the past... I've only lost about 35 pounds at them most before....but then gained it back. I want to achieve so much in my life and weight is holding me back from some of it!! I don't want limits that are placed on my life by my own doing!! I want to break free from this bondage of weight and vicious cycle of gaining and losing and gaining!! I deserve better!! I just have to continue!
My hubby taught the college class the other week about continuing in the faith and he said if you believe it then you'd do something about it! What do I believe when I don't continue in weight loss? Do I believe I'm not worth it or that I am too weak to carry on? Do I really believe that the donut or extra serving is more important then living a healthy life that is more full then my belly that moment? Harsh realities! But I believe that if I really do want something bad enough and believe that I am worth it and can do it then it will be done! I love my hubby so I show him how much every day, I love my God so I strive to do the best I can to please Him with a life worthy of calling. But how am I showing I love myself when I choose not to continue? Do I really have that small self worth? I bathe, dress nicely, and try to present myself well, but yet I stuff my face at the table... it kinda cancels it all out if you think about it... I'm not behaving in a consistent manner of loving myself!
Anyways, I will consider these thoughts next time I sit down to eat ANYTHING! Do I love myself enough to say no? Do I love myself enough to continue and try my best to exercise? What may be uncomfy as far as physical today will be less in the comparison to what I gain in the long haul! I like to eat healthy.... so why do I eat the sugary, fatty and un-satisfying foods? Habit I suppose....but that's not good enough! I know that I'm going to be temped to eat more then I should after I write this... I'm not going to lie... but I will try with all that I can to remember this moment! How I feel and the truths written!!
So what about you? Why haven't you continued until now? Or if you're stuck why are you not continuing? I hope that you'll sit down and consider reasons you over eat and don't exercise or do things half hearted. I will try to motive and encourage you with my testimony/blogs. I hope that you're having a wonderful day. If you've already realized these truths then I praise you and lets move on together because we can do this. God will see us through!! Have a great day, God bless and Happy SParking!!
