If you don't like the number on your scale. It is probably because you aren't weighing yourself correctly:
The proper way to weigh yourself! : )
I've shared on here before (and more on my fitness blog) about my struggle to maintain my weight. It has been a life-long battle and one I often doubt I'll ever win.
Last year was a year of victory. This year has been a year of stress eating, blues, and 25 unwanted pounds back on my body. It makes me feel so ashamed and unhappy.
I have no one to blame but myself. It was my hands grabbing comfort food. It was my mind saying, "Reward yourself" after a stressful day.
I used to beg, "Make me skinny, Lord."
Now I've been crying out, "Change me, Lord!" I am so tired of the up and down trip on the scale and the way it messes with my mind, emotions, and self-esteem.
His answer is, "I am changing you."
To which I respond, "Not fast enough."
I am learning that God is changing me from the inside out. He wants me to be healthy, but although my physical health is important, its temporal, and secondary to my spiritual health which is eternal. That doesn't make the journey easy, it has been TOUGH lately, but I'm learning to not despise it, to accept who I am right now and God's love, to grow from my mistakes, and to not give up. This is God's way of doing a permanent fix in me, not a quick shallow one, and that's worth the wait.
What kind of journey does He have you on at the moment?
Praying for you!
