3 Months Ago…

Saturday, May 19, 2012

On February 29th, I gave my heart and soul to Jesus Christ. I grew up as a Christian, but as I grew older I could feel myself turning away. I remember sitting on my couch, and just reading some books that I had around about Jesus, and there were prayers in these books. I got chocked up, and just started to bawl like a baby…I knew I needed Him. As I reflect on this, I also want to reflect on how my life and outlook has changed.

3 months ago I would have never given up Diet Coke.
3 months later all I drink now is water.

3 months ago I would have tried to lose weight for a week and then quit.
3 months later I am still on a weight loss journey.

3 months ago I would have never walked, even for 10 minutes.
3 months later I am walking 5 days a week, and even jogged a bit on the treadmill.

3 months ago I was eating fast food practically every day, sometimes 2-3 times a day.
3 months later fast food is in my past, with occasional visits, sometimes 1-2 a month.

3 months ago I was not committed to a church, or a group of believers.
3 months later I am actively involved in my church, and have many new friends that are believers.

3 months ago I weighed 368 pounds.
3 months later I weigh 359 pounds.

These changes in my outlook on life, and the way I’m making changes to better myself can only be of God. I praise Him for saving me and giving me peace and encouraging me to do what is right!

    Great job Jennifer! You've come a long way in 3 months. Just think about how much further you'll be in 6 and then 9 and then a year. Stay focused because you CAN do this!
