I look at myself and get so discouraged the way I look. I hate the way I have all this fat around my upper body that I never had until 3 years ago. I hate that I have put on so much weight since my knee replacement. i hate that I can't seem to stick on my diet and lose the weight . I hate that I have health issues that make it hard for me to lose weight. There are a lot of things I hate, but I love the fact that every time I wanted to eat something today that I didn't need that I could pray and ask God to give me strength and he did. I need to remember that he is there to help me with this battle. he wants me to be healthy. My weight won't go down if I don't put in the work. I love the support of people who are there for me to win at this journey. One day at a time. I won today with Gods help. God one point, Satan 0.

    Donna - I want to encourage your - this is such a struggle for us but little by little, day by day, consistent effort will pay off - I finally am claiming a new low on the home scale this morning...I have seen it three different days...not in a row, but three days so am claiming!!! Will that help you?? You are on the run so much, that it is hard to control what you eat - I know that will happen for me again this year in our two weeks away but family visits are worth it and hopefully I will be able to be strong and courageous and HEALTHY!!! God bless you as you work at this and I look forward to not hearing that "hate" word any more.Hugs.

    Be Still And Know That I Am God.
    This is my mantra, when I realize that I am frustrated, and depressed, and angry, because I am trying to FORCE something to happen, by myself. I know that God is waiting for me to Be Still and let Her do the work for a while.

    I'm not where you are right now, but I have been, and chances are I will be again, and I hope I remember to "Be Still...." when I'm all frustrated, etc .... emoticon

    Love your blog. I just want to say, that you need to measur yourself now, later on down the road when you know that you have been good yet you haven't lost any pounds, you might find you have lost inches. This is a great motivator. Anyhow good luck😃
