YOU ARE THERE", what does that mean? emoticon

My texting buddy, Pat(PREDEL), made this statement in her comment on my blog "What Do You See". This statement spoke volume and caused a nagging feeling in my spirit. I didn't understand what was going on. Pat(PREDEL) then gave her explanation of this statement on my page. Again that nagging feeling came upon me. emoticon This time the soft voice of the Holy Spirit was speaking into my spirit..."Listen Up". I knew then that MY LORD was speaking to me through Pat's message. emoticon I began to pray and ask for HIM to speak understanding into my spirit. I am always praying and asking HIM to guide me and give me wisdom on this journey to a healthier me, that HE lead me on in 2011.

So, what did HE want me to understand about "YOU ARE THERE"? (Revealed this morning during my Quiet Time with HIM.)That I am at the place that I need to be to start living out maintaining. emoticon WHAT ARE YOU SERIOUS? BUT I AM NOT.......before I could finish the statement HE revealed that I am where I need to be, learning the process of maintaining 4LIFE. I didn't need to take any AGGRESSIVE actions, only DELIBERATE actions. Actions that I WILL do for the remaining of my life here to remain healthy. If I would began LIVING NOW like that magic number "I" want to see already exist everything else will fall into place. emoticon

Uh well, uh okay. My LORD knows His child. He gave me my third confirmation through a goodie message that I received from my sissy (FIT4MEIN2013), to celebrate life emoticon , who had no idea of what I was pondering.

So, it's not anything that I am doing that needs to change, it's my thinking that needs to change. Because I will choose to eat healthy, limit and/or eliminate those foods/drinks that wreak havoc to my digestive system. I will choose to exercise daily at a level I know that works for me. I will choose to keep accountable to those who have pulled, pushed, and shoved me to this point. Of course all done in love. emoticon

    This is excellent. I am so glad you heard God's voice. That was the mistake I made when I lost weight before. I kept thinking I had to do more, but I "was there." Thank you.
