The other day I was on my way driving to a work conference and I kept thinking to myself that I couldn't wait to get there to eat the greek yogurt I had thrown in my purse and was going to have for breakfast. At that moment I began to praise GOD. I can remember times in my life where, I would stop at some fast food place on the way and get a breakfast value meal and gobble it down in my vehicle and then eat the danishes, donuts or whatever they were offering once I made it to a conference. But no, instead, I was looking forward to my healthier breakfast and not because I was being forced to but purely out of the enjoyment of eating it.
Once I got there and settled in, I realized I had left my name badge. Again, I thought to myself, the old me would have dreaded having to walk and find a bathroom in that big old convention center but I again was struck with some joy. Yes, I parked across the way at a parking lot but that would give me an opportunity to get a little quick walk in. Hallelujah. God is so good and has brought me so far in this journey. Most of you all don't know me but I know me and I know the power of GOD. Without Him allowing the Holy Spirit to strengthen me through this journey, I would still be that old person, loving me unhealthy eating habits and lack of exercise.
My journey is far from over and this last 20 lbs I desire to lose has been WHOA!. I can't catch a streak right now. One thing I do know is that God is still present with me because in His promise he said that he would be with me and that is on this weight loss journey and every journey I face in life. I have to say again. Hallelujah I am not where I should be but thank God I am not where I been!!!!!
