Good Morning! It is a bright and sunny morning in Pa. I am excited to begin new today. This is my response to the very nice email message I received. I don't post much and hope I am doing this in an ok place.
My weightloss journey is lifelong. I joined SparkPeople over a year ago, but didn't commit or stick to doing anything consistently. I recommitted a few months ago. I have joined a TOPS group and am using many encouragements that I receive on Spark pages to encourage my TOPS friends. Since the end of January to four weeks ago, I had lost 17 pounds. Then when I thought I was doing well, I had a gain. I tumbled into old "all or nothing" patterns, with a mindset of "If I'm going to gain weight anyway, ...."
I'm not proud of that, but being honest with you and myself, I am admitting my patterns in hopes of confronting and changing them! So.... following two weeks of gains and last week a small loss, I followed with a roller coaster of good and bad days, hoping the good would outweigh the bad (fingers crossed, because my efforts were lacking. lol)
Somehow, in God's incredible grace, I weighed in yesterday to a 2.25 loss! I don't understand it but I awake today with a new drive. I am back where I was a month ago and ready to move forward. I would love to say old patterns are behind me....
With God's strength and the incredible support and encouragement I find here, I will move forward one day at a time, intending to focus on better health and serving my LORD daily, keeping the weight numbers in their right place.
Praying God's blessing and encouragement upon each one who reads this.
