Today, In light of everything that has been going on I have decided that I am going to stay positive!
Over the last month I have met many challenges and somehow that has translated into about three weeks of not losing any weight. Inspite of that though, I have had many blessings. First, I have not gained any weight back. Second, I have met other people especially here on Spark that are going through the exact same thing or at least a similar experience. That has helped me to see that I am not alone in my journey and there is always someone that could have it worse that I do at any given time. And I know that I have to keep going.
The end result no matter how slowly it comes will be what I have chosen it to be. I know that it is up to me to put in the work to reach what I have desired in my heart. I will reach down and lend a hand to others along the way so that we can reach that dream together.
More than anything though, I have learned that every choice I have made makes me the person that I am today. Whether those choices were good or bad, I decided those mistakes were mine, I own them and as I have always believed I use them as stepping stones to a better "me".
So as you read this my friend know that I am glad you are here. I am happy you are reading this and know that I hold you as a valued friend and partner in this journey. My prayer for you today is that you recognize that there is HOPE. I pray that you find it, hold it and let it push you forward through all your struggles big and small! Take care and have a blessed weekend!
