My scale is going down ever so slowly but I noticed a difference when I dressed for dinner Friday night. I put on a pair of dress slacks that I haven't worn for awhile. The waist on my pants has been getting big for awhile. That's where I always lose weight first. But Friday the hips were really loose and the butt was absolutely saggy. It gave me a boost to keep trying.

7/21 – I am feeling much better since I am again succeeding at making sweets occasional and not the norm. And I am seeing great results as I cultivate the thought that I will crave what I eat most often, making every good choice a healing balm to my appetites.

I struggled with temptation when evening came. I allow myself 2 mini Hershey's special darks every day if I want, and don't count them against my sweets intake. I had two after dinner. That is not what started my struggle though. It was thinking that did it. Ice cream entered my thoughts and the battle was on. The victory came in realizing the battle field. I sought the Lord for victory in my thinking, and He gave it by reminding me of the thoughts He has given me to meditate on and make part of my arsenal in such times as this. It was an awesome victory and I went to bed sweets free!

7/22 – Scales were down this morning, back to my all-time low since January’s new beginnings! I am excited. Now to hold this ground and press forward from here as I continue to focus on holding this territory I have possessed on my journey thus fare while waiting for conditions that are out of my control to return to a level where I can press forward in my efforts again.

One way we can encourage one another is sharing victories. I am encouraged to press on by the victories others share. Share yours here.
