Another New Beginning - Day 1

Friday, August 27, 2010

Well, I'm officially starting over today. This isn't the first or second time that I have attempted to lose weight, but hopefully it will be the last. I was constantly focusing on my appearance all the while not realizing that the negative thoughts I have about myself have to go too. Those negative thoughts and feelings are holding me captive and I have to break free.

I want to be happy again.

I want to enjoy my life.

I want to love myself fully without anything or anyone (myself) holding me back.

Life is too short to be miserable.

As I tackle those issues that plague me, I believe that I will finally be able to tackle all of this weight.

****My Affirmations****

I will take I day at a time.

I will find something to be happy or satisfied with each day.

I will be thankful for my family for there are people who wished that they had one.

I will not look at my setbacks as failures, but instead as new beginnings.

I will do my best to reflect the character of Jesus because He first loved me.


Losing weight this time will be different because I'm not only focusing on the physical, but I'm focusing on the mental too. Here's to another new beginning!

    Day by day, step by step. Look at this journey as a time of reflection and expectation. Our Father is going to reveal Himself to you in unexpeccted ways. It's not just about the weight.

    I'm so glad you are starting again. I'm sorry to see that you have been diagnosed with mild lupus. But the Lord can do amazing things with broken vessels.

    Keep battling your negative thoughts with the truth. You are beautifully and wonderfully made. You are loved with an everlasting love. You are a daughter of the King, a princess. I pray that you will find much joy in this new beginning!
