It’s the last day of July and here are my stats:
Today’s weight: 201.0
Loss/Gain: + 0.5 from last month and +2.0 from a few weeks ago.
Total Loss So Far: -30 lbs.
This has been a weird month for me. It started off great and then I got into a funk, or got busy or I’m not sure what. I’ve learned some more about myself and why I fight this eating healthy thing. While I’m a bit sad I didn’t lose five pounds this month I can be grateful that I’m seeing emotions for what they are and learning how to deal with them.
I think I can sum up some of what I’m learning in a scripture that I’ve really taken to heart lately. I’ve memorized it and am learning to apply it to my weight loss journey.
“All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.” 1 Cor.6:12 KJV
The NIV translation makes it a little more understandable:
“Everything is permissible for me”–but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible for me”–but I will not be mastered by anything.”
Also, I saw this t-shirt at the Christian bookstore a couple of days ago and thought it fits me perfectly in regards to my weight loss journey. Thank you so much for your patience everyone! I will win this battle. 🙂
