Happy Holiday's everyone,
I was sharing with Beth Donovan [Indygirl] that over Thanksgiving I felt like I lost control of my appetite and it made me feel like I was a sinking ship, my rudder was running a muck, I felt fearful because the scale showed me up 3.6 lbs and I felt hopeless knowing that I was still counting and measuring everything and yet I had a gain? I couldn't figure it out.. and it was a big gain!
I was full of despair, fear, and hopelessness.. I kept telling myself it was those salted vinegar nuts [2 servings a day] that did me in..
[we had skipped the big dinner and didn't have all the side dishes; in fact, I made a diet friendly Hot Tamale pie! But, IBS or constipation (which ever doesn't offend your ears) I was really..
Anyway, I told myself not to give up but stay the course, that this too HAD to pass
if I stayed faithful
and it did, yesterday the scale
went back down 3.8 lbs [so, two ounces MORE than my original weight and today I feel even skinnier [though I refuse to get on the scale today]! I want to focus more on renewing my mind Spiritually ..and to encourage myself and others.. which means Sparking and setting my sights on those things that lie before me. (Which is NOT that stupid scale, not today! LOL! I really don't like making my success be solely the numbers on that metal monster..
which it does become when you know your doing your best
and yet it cheats you out of dropping weight.. tee-hee-hee!)
Anyway, how are you guys doing? are those numbers on the scale still dropping for you? I know it sure feels good when they go in the right direction! Anyway, praying for everyone to have God's Strength through the Holiday Season!
Here's a cartoon for the Season, hope it gives you a chuckle!
