I remember day one, May 23, 2011. I dreaded making a change in my eating lifestyle, sorta like a child being dragged in from play to take a bath!
I was angry that I couldn’t have sweets and angry that God made me to be prone to being fat. I was angry that sweet sister Suzie was a bean pole and could eat WHATEVER she wanted and NEVER gain an ounce and I was just PURE fat. Just looking at the Gooey Butter Cake added 15 pounds to me! And WHY would God make me such a good cook and NOT let me be able to enjoy the meals?! Does that make sense to you?! Of course not!
I thought it would take FOREVER to see any changes in my physical appearance. I wanted the change IMMEDIATELY!
I didn’t want to work for it.
I wanted that instant gratification without the hard work!
But it doesn’t work like that, does it?
The truth is, if I didn’t have to work for it, I would never succeed. If the weight was falling off without any change in my eating (and cooking) habits, then I wouldn’t be depending on the Lord in this particular area of my life.
After weighing in today, I lost two more pounds at a total of 50 pounds.
I am 7.5 pounds away from my half way mark and 10 more pounds away from my end of the year goal!
Now, since my surgery, I have not been exercising like I am supposed to AND I have only journaled my food items one day on www.myfitnesspal.com. I know, right!
I must get back on track to continue to succeed at surrendering completely in this area of my life!
Until next time . . . .
Continuing, to Walk in Victory!
