Miracle of all miracles!

It's official! I have lost 10 lbs on my own. I say on my own because I am not paying anyone to look at my weight when I step on the scale. That has always been such a huge motivator for me. It's different this time. I am holding myself accountable, not someone else. I am losing weight for me - for good health, for longer life, for looking awesome in my clothes. I've spent most of my life taking care of my family. I thought I was being selfish to focus so much energy on me. Wow! Hello? If I don't take care of me, who will? My husband is disabled - he needs me! My daughter is in college-she needs me! I am a teacher-my kids need me! I am a workshop presenter-my participants and co-workers need me! Yes, it is true I am needed, but aren't we all? I am no different, so now I NEED ME! I need me to make the right choices and not regret the chips and fries I once ate, because they did not give me energy or help me in any way, except to satisfy something that wasn't hunger inside of me. I need me to get my skinny butt off the couch and look around. There are lots of things for me to do inside and outside my house that will improve the looks of my home, help me learn how to do something new and be a form of exercise. I need me to find the me God made me to be and then walk in that fullness of life. I need me to accentuate the positives in all areas of my life and then surround myself with those who can help me in my weaknesses. It sounds as if this is all about, well, ME! It is. This body and this life is the only one I am getting on this earth. Use it correctly or lose it.

Hooray for me!
