Forgiving Myself

This Sparked Me!

One of the most challenging things to do is to forgive myself for the poor choices that I made that brought me to this circumstance that threatens my good health. It is not a one-time event, rather it is something that must be done daily.

    When I read this reminder to forgive myself, I could feel the pain in my heart. It made my cry (I'm not a crier). Thanks for reminding me of God's mercy and grace. emoticon

    I liked your comment too, and I like how you said that it is ongoing too.

    I thought I was one of ver few that felt this way. I get so upset at time when I start to take weight off because of what I have done to my body by doing yoyo diets. It makes me sad but I have to forgive my self and think of it as a reminder how far I have become. Good luck to you!!

    You need to forgive yourself and move ahead. Just take one day at a time and you can make things happen for you. Good luck in your healthy lifestyle journey.
