I’m Getting Stronger
Thursday, May 28, 2009
I’m getting stronger I can feel it. My daughter asked me today if I felt like I’ve lost any weight. I really didn’t know how to answer the question, so I thought about it for a moment. I then replied, yes I know I have because the scales indicate I have, but most importantly I feel better about myself. She’s on this journey with me; her goal is to lose 25 pounds; she only has 19 more to go. Boy! I have so much more work to do!
I guess I will have to lose a considerable amount before it’s really noticeable to me. Others always see us differently than we see ourselves. But to continue, my daughter and I are on a new path, we no longer over eat, we make healthier food choices and we enjoy planning our meals together. We don’t feel miserable when we go to be because we’ve enforced a food curfew. We rode our bicycle to my mom’s house which is about 2.5 miles away, I pedaled the entire trip, just a few weeks ago I couldn’t ride ¼ mile without stopping.
I’m proud of the progress I’ve made so far (including my daughter), even if I don’t lose 5 pounds this week. I must remind myself of the obstacles I’ve crossed to get to this point right now. I must not give up and if I keep pushing I will meet my goals.
Thank you all for the encouragement you have given me thus far, I believe you must give credit where credit is due. I probably could have done this alone, but it is a blessing to know I don’t have too. I thank God for you all and you are forever in my prayers.
Thanks for listening!
