Be careful what you pray for…
I have thought about losing weight for a while and have started a new diet every other Monday for the last couple of years. As 2015 approached I was completely stuck in a rut. I woke up each day focusing on the to-do list of life and had lost my drive. I started praying that God would send me some motivation. I needed something to get me excited and I prayed that I would find a way to be inspired and inspire others in return. Listening to His Radio, I kept hearing the promotion for Rob’s Big Losers and realized that this was the answer to my prayers.
I have been very blessed in life. I have a good job with a wonderful supporting husband and two beautiful little girls. However, I only focused on the chaos of being a working mom with a husband that worked nights. I told myself that I didn’t have time for me and I woke up every day marking items of a list before I could go to sleep and start it all over again. I made a promise to myself that in 2015 I would start putting myself first more and STOP making excuses for my weight and my health.
So I say be careful for what you pray for because this answered prayer has put me on the spot and pushed me outside of my comfort zone. However, that is exactly where I need to be. My comfort zone has allowed me to put on the weight so this move will force me to really look in the mirror and focus on myself so that I can be a better mom and wife. I am teaching my daughters unhealthy habits and if I want to be the best mom possible I need to be their role model in hopes of preventing weight issues for them in the future. I need to take responsibility for my actions and stop being a victim to the chaos of life.
So tomorrow morning at 5:00 am the journey to the healthier happier me begins.
