Every Saturday I weigh in. I want to know exactly how I have done. Today I weighed in for the first time in 2014. Having already been down on myself for not walking enough for eating to much for snacking at various times of the day; I was equally surprised to find that I had lost 6.4 pounds. I can't start to tell you how much that has boosted my morale in what I am doing with my weight. Evidently having walked only 9 miles total this year, and keeping a positive attitude has helped.
But I credit much more than the cardiovascular exercise; I credit more than my attitude, I give credit to my friends, and more importantly to my renewed relationship with Jesus Christ. You see my life had been bad over the past year, I would spend many hours in tears, eating whatever I could find. Today however, I am finding that true happiness comes from within. If I am not happy, my body isn't going to be happy, thus I will eat more to try and fill a void that I can't fill on my own.
Renewing my relationship with Jesus has become my focal point. I have started to attend regular church meetings, I have found a "lifegroup" and I have found that Rachel is truly deserving of love regardless of what or how Rachel feels about herself at any given time.
Remember that whatever we put into our minds is what comes out. If you are not putting in good things, then good things will not come forth. I encourage everyone on Sparkpeople to find some kind of spiritual place to help you; get a group of friends who can provide the spiritual support you will need on your journey. And most of all, remain happy! Because that which we feed ourselves is what will come forth later.
