Weigh in Wednesday~Week 12

Hope everyone is having a great week! This week started of kind of shaky but I just had to get a grip on things. I managed to lose one pound this week. I know it's not alot and it puts me right back where I was at the beginning of this month so I'll take it!

Looking back this past month, I have had alot of struggles~food wise and exercise wise. Time and time again I've felt like I'm not strong enough to do this..And...then today I heard this song:

I feel like this song goes straight to my heart for where I am on this journey...even though the past 2 days have been awesome, I'm not going to lie~they were rough! But I just have to ask the Lord to be strong enough for the both of us.

I'm heading North and not looking back. (I actually have tears in my eyes as I type this listening to the song.)

I also want to share that my blog has allowed me to find someone who is on this same journey as me and has become a great friend of mine.... I'm sure I'd still be struggling if it wasn't for her, but I think I'm on the right path now thanks to her. We have been reading Made to Crave together for the past couple of weeks and comparing notes and texting each other encouraging things~and I just want to say THANK you ! It really wasn't until Sunday night reading when things really began to click..I have to realize that weakness is not defeat... I have to realize that I don't need to have cheat days because this is not another diet, it is a lifestyle change & I am tired of cheating my life..... I need to pray for self control before I ever even sit down for that meal or head out for an outing with friends...and remember I am made for MORE~I am made for VICTORY!! Last night reading..I came across Revelation 3:8~Behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one is to shut.

I have tried to do this on my own time and time again but have failed... but this time I'm doing it different, I'm calling on God, my friends, and my family to help me through this! This is a door that the Lord has set before me and not even I will shut.

~Thought for the day~
