"Dancing Like David"

Sunday, December 08, 2013

"Dancing Like David" emoticon is a term of celebration for me. My way of giving God praises for the blessings HE grants in my life. All my family and friends know that when I get to Heaven, I will ask David to teach me the Israel Shuffle. emoticon

Sunday weigh-in was not a good one emoticon ....TOM and Crave Monster hanging on for dear life.. emoticon emoticon UGH! UGH!, and apparently I wore the wrong shoes yesterday because my plantar fasciitis is more intense emoticon!!!!!!!

But guess what "I AM NOT DEFEATED" emoticon emoticon I still got a praise report. The weird pair of skinny jeans that taunted me and dared me to wear them....telling me I WON'T fit(I had them for over a year. When I purchased them I could not wear them)....I DEFEATED THEM emoticon ...."I FIT! I FIT! I FIT!"(Being I fit a size 8 with ease, these may be a size 6 emoticon ) emoticon Tears of joy...... emoticon WHAT A MIGHTY GOD I SERVE!!!! He continues to amaze with revealing the BIG victories of this journey, which we all know is not always the number on the scale.

I share this because my team (Azure Destination) emoticon know how I struggled with that darn scale controlling me in the beginning of this journey, how NUMBERS determined how I viewed this journey. By HIS grace and the support of my AMAZING TEAMAZURE and other SPFriends those chains of bondage(numbers) are being released. I am growing!!!!! emoticon

    I can most definitely relate to this. The scale can be a downfall of mine sometimes, and it's great when we get validation from other sources that our hard work is paying off.

    NSV (non scale victories) make such a difference in our success. Keep doing what your doing.

    Wow - whether they are a size 6 or a size 8, that is amazing! emoticon

    I'm having those craving issues, too. I'm trying my hardest to ignore them, and thinking it has to do with staying home so much. Tomorrow I am going to the gym and hope that helps. I hope you get past your cravings also. emoticon

    It's my clothes fitting that do it best for me too, especially when the number is not what I'd hoped. I have to confess however that nothing beats standing on the scale and seeing a lower number!

    What a great NSV!

    Scales lie *grin* If it weren't for the BLC's required weigh ins, I'd probably throw the scale out the window, LOL. I think other measures of victory--most importantly how you *feel* followed by things like health numbers (blood pressure, blood sugar, blood cholesterol, heart rate, etc.), fitness measures (like how much I can lift or how far/fast/long I can move), and measures like inches and how clothing fits are by far better indicators of progress made on the journey.

    And you are doing a fantastic job... you've earned that dance *grin*
