My Journey Continues…I Think

June 19 – Today is Monday, I haven’t posted for in quite some time, so I will attempt to update everyone on my progress. I didn’t lose any weight, it seems like I lose 2 pounds and gain 4 back…I don’t get it! It doesn’t help knowing that I am the one that is keeping me from losing weight. I had such high hopes for my blog, I guess I was hoping by writing it all down it would help to motivate me. I thought of not blogging anymore but I am determined not to give up. With all the books and the weight-loss programs I have been on through the years I have all the tools I need to lose weight. So what am I going to do, I feel stuck? I am open to suggestions if anyone has any thoughts that might help me to get unstuck…lol.
Matthew 12:31 says “For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” I have been condemning myself by my words, you cannot rise above how you perceive yourself…the problem is getting pass the seeing myself. But the Word of God also says in Matthew 8:1 “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” So that tells me that I need to stop with the condemnation, if Jesus doesn’t condemn me why am I condemning me.
My words have been my biggest, when I am not having a good day my focus is about me. and that is where it shouldn’t be because I tend to get in self-pity.
Anyway that has to change. My motivation has been very low lately. I read a weight-loss story about this young woman who lost over 100 pounds and she said she had to find ways to keep herself motivated daily. Every morning she would do something to motivate herself. Just a thought.
I weighted this morning, 295.6…UGH.
