It's Friday, what are you grateful for?

Friday, July 12, 2013

I would like to start off by saying thank God, I had a wonderful week so far. ((Thank you dearly God)). I have gone down to 215 lbs. in 1 week. I am so excited yet I'm being patient, to see the good God has been working in my life! Without Him, I could have never have gotten this far, stayed this positive, and have been this happy all the while making important life changes and choices.

Never have I been as open to others about my life: current, past, and future! I feel good about opening up too!! I help others, check in, or just offer what I can for advice(as I have been there before). I hope I am not giving too much of my opinion or advice.... No one has said anything to me yet, but I believe that my words are a God Send too. Normally I don't have a lot of advice to give or words to say, except for this past week or 2?

I have heard that God works in mysterious ways. I can certainly agree. It is a mystery why he has chosen to help me out! Maybe I have struggled long enough? Maybe he is finally answering my prayers? Or maybe he wants to help others see that if I can make healthy choices, habits, and changes then certainly ANYONE can.

I am not trying to put myself down; that is not my intention...but I certainly have had my fair share of problems and challenges.... I have a mental illness for pete's sake! (Not that it makes me any different then most people, because there isn't a one of us who is perfect) And yet I am still here, fighting for health and looking to spark other's to fight for their health too.

I don't know, maybe I haven't been involved in trying to get healthy long enough...but this I know....I AM NEVER GOING BACK OR GIVING UP ON ME!!
