I have heard from several of you doing the Weight Watchers program and thought I had best share my journey as I had promised. Many of you are doing WONDERFUL!!! Congratulations to each of you! Changing our habits is not an easy process but by the grace of God it can be accomplished!
How long I’ve been doing this journey simply escapes me. I’ve lost track of the days and truthfully, I don’t know that it matters near as much as I thought it did when I began. Counting days, in my mind, somehow means that I am counting down the days till I don’t have to do “it” anymore. I think it is just the wrong mindset for me personally. So, what have I accomplished and learned by day “whatever”? Well, I’ve lost and kept 4lbs off so far. I’ve also learned it’s not as much about my diet choices as it is my lack of exercise that keeps me from reaching my goals. Exercise is really where I am lacking and what I need to do if I want to see real weight loss and better health. I always have 100 excuses why I don’t want to exercise. For me, it’s not about the physical demand near as much as it is the time it demands. I have convinced myself I don’t have time and I need to just put that notion out of my mind. I finally gave in (with some persistent ‘encouragement’ from my girls) and made myself go for a walk last night. It wasn’t near as bad as I had dreaded it to be. Bekah, Beth-Joy, and Sarah-Grace were all out there with me. Conversations were flowing and before long it was time to call it quits for the night.Our walk was truly refreshing! It was something I just might actually enjoy doing again. In fact, I have it on my “to do” list for tonight too! I pray that I can be consistent in exercise, keeping my eyes off of counting days and focused on my goal of lifelong health! So, how are you doing with your exercise program and weight loss journey? I would love to hear! It is my prayer that we each grow daily by His grace and for His glory in every area of our lives!
Here’s to day whatever…
