I gained twenty pounds this last year. I have been successful so many times with losing weight, and this last time I was sure it would be the last time. Well, guess what? This is not over. The twenty pounds will come off. I am not discouraged with this temporary setback. I am making no excuses. This is a test that I will pass.. I am good at taking tests. I always score well, and this will be no exception.
I am still joyful. I still have a spring in my step. God is still leading me, and He gives me strength. I write the story of my life, and it will have a happy ending because I choose it. I am committed. I am disciplined and willing to sacrifice. I will give up unhealthy food to have a better life.
I am willing to accept that responsibility. There will be opposition along the way.....travel, emotional setbacks. holidays, etc. Sometimes I won't lose weight as fast as I would like. Sometimes it will be difficult. I've been through this many times before, but this is a test I can pass.
Having my mind made up and being of high resolve, my victory is on its way. I just weighed myself, and I am claiming the Word in Galatians 6:9 which says, "Let's not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't give up."
Psalm 24:9 reads, "Lift up your heads....and the King of Glory shall come in." I lift up my head to see God's favor. My extra pounds are weighing me down so I'm trading them in for a new vision of myself.
I feel so light already.
Love and Light,
