Guess you were wondering if I was going to continue with the "HYC". The intent was and still is to continue. But I have been too ashamed to post a weekly progress. You see, there has been no progress, not on the scale anyway. The five pounds I lost, yup gained them back-but I couldn't bring myself to take away my 5 lbs lost button. I felt like it would make me more of a failure then I already was at this healthy challenge.
As I reflect, even though there may not have been progress with the scale there has been been forward progress in my head and in my heart. Every time I would put something in my mouth I thought about the scale and what it was going to do. Am I really worshipping the bathroom scale? What's that saying....?
As you have already read, I went to a Women Of Faith conference this last weekend and God spoke directly to my heart. The majority of the speakers talked about their weight struggles in one way or another. I thought that was a little odd since that was foremost on my mind right now. Over the weekend, with God's guidance, I found and joined the Weight Watchers online program and I am very excited about it!
Yesterday was my first official day of tracking what I ate and my activity. Just yesterday alone I realized with my scheduled I will have to make it a point/schedule time in for some loving movement. Exercise does not come natural to me right now and I will need to make an effort.
So, that's where I am right now. I will not worship the bathroom scale, I worship only ONE and that is Jesus Christ, with him I can do anything.
