Facing the results...


This morning I am finally ready to face the results of my out of control behavior with food over the past few weeks. It's not pretty. 8.2 pounds gained. Surprisingly, I am not terribly disappointed or upset over it. It is what it is.

My sister reminded me this week that self control is a fruit of the Spirit. So I will be looking to find my misplaced self control this week....and trusting the Holy Spirit to lead me in doing so.

That's all I have to say about the subject of my long overdue encounter with my scale this morning...oh except to say....I wore my peace sign socks on purpose....I am going to come to a place of peace with the scale one day...really, I am....

OH no! Hey, at least you are facing the scale. Now you can get right back on track. Weight loss is one of the most difficult things I've done. I know we can reach our goals. :)

Morning (((Miss Vickie)))). You are so brave to face it head on first thing this morning. I cant help but wonder since you were doing so well with WW maybe you would benefit from finding a meeting in your area. I know you were doing soooooooooooooo good when you were journaling daily. I know too well the feeling of wild abandon when we are not accountable for our food. I know its a very simple concept so why we struggle so much when we all know what to do is the million dollar question. We have TWO CHOICES....if you dont want to diet you have to exercise your butt off and if you dont want to exercise your butt off you need to stop eating. We just need to pick one and do it for the rest of our lives lol
Lots of Love and Prayers for you my friend. You are NOT ALONE in this struggle so the fact that you share your struggle with us is a beautiful thing. I for one can absolutely relate.
