looking in the mirror

Friday, February 14, 2014

Today I was trying on a new out fit I had gotten in the mail. As I looked at myself I was reminded of the quote above, There are so many things I have let go of to become the person I am today. I unloaded Ben & Jerry's from my suit case. I knew that they were not my best friend.........but my worst enemy as they helped make me fat. I also ended my love affair with M&M's as they served me no purpose other than to make me miserable. I gave up drinking as God tapped me on the shoulder and said "I have a better way" and I found Jesus. Through therapy I unloaded an abusive childhood and bad marriage. So now packing around my suit case is a lot lighter......60 lbs. to be exact as that is how much weight I lost. I say 60 lbs. because I ate my way and drank my way to that weight. I ate and drank due to that abusive childhood plus bad marriage. I am so thankful to God for all of his help. I am also thankful for Dennis being around for all of this. He's helped unload some of my suitcase. So now I feel pounds lighter.....
