In the Beginning

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

In the beginning God created ... Me! And I was a perfect, tiny bundle of 7 pounds 6 ounces (So my Mama always tells me)! Since that time almost 47 years ago, there have been many battles - some with severe losses like the death of my son and some with tremendous gains like the births of my other three children. While those seasons come and go in everyone's life, one battle that has been constant since middle school has been the War on Weight Gain! Yes, that's how I looked at the weight flucuations - as tiny battles to be won! And yet, it was always a short-lived victory. So here we are. Now. Ready to start anew. Maybe I need to tweak my perspective on my weight - stop using so many war analogies and find a different, more optimistic viewpoint! Of course that won't change the fact that this is life or death - Obesity is a killer and he's coming for me!

    As long as you sign a peace treaty with beating yourself up over weigh gain and focus on the positive outcomes that this journey will bring, I believe you will successfully win not just the battle, but the war as well.
