WELL THIS IN NOT MY VERY OWN TOES, NOR IT IS EVEN ME....
Do we ever reach the point when we are not afraid to step on those scales? Have you felt that anxious feeling in the pit of your stomach,at the thought of getting on the scales at a Doctor's office let say. No! let just narrow it down.....to the scales in our very own bathrooms?lol I pray for the day, when I can step up on that little bitty old,cold, judgemental place and not be afraid. lol
At my Doctor's visit this past Wednesday, I had lost five more pounds. It took three months. But, hey, there are five pounds less of me that there was three months ago. I am thankful!!
My husband and I have entered into a commitment to each lose 15 pounds before the second week in September. Please pray for us, It will be hard, we have not learned yet the virtue of disciplining ourselves all the time when it come to eating food. We get better but this past month has been filled with birthdays, graduations and preparations of one sort or another. You call that stress, my friends. But if we would discipline ourselves not only when we are home but also at church functions, family times, etc, then it wouldn't be so hard to step on those "cold hard harsh scales." They never lie even when we feel, it would make us feel better if they would. No, it wouldn't we would just have more the problems. To not know the truth in this area of our life and accept it,would make a hard situation almost impossible. We can and will have victory. It is the path we choose. If we choose right, then God will be there to help us in those weak times. Then that scale may eventually become our friend....well, I want go that far. But we can at least accept it with out hate.lol Praying for you to have discipline in your life also, then we can all see a scale and just step upon it without dreading it. God bless and keep you all. connie
