Fear Doesn’t Belong Here
This morning I stood on the scale, expecting to see the same numbers as I have the last 2-3 mornings. Instead, I was down 4lbs! That brings me down to the weight I was prior to my surgery last February! <Happy Dance>
That said, I don’t feel like I did then. I felt so good, like I was really making progress. A long way from my goal, but not as far as I had been. Today, I feel blah! I don’t feel as strong as I felt then, I don’t feel as energized as I did then. I’m not sure what the deal is, other than fear and doubt planted by the enemy. (The enemy has been putting in overtime hours on me since I started RBL!)
Thankfully, I have a Father who is much bigger than that fear and doubt. With him, I don’t have to worry about fear and doubt, I just have to keep working on remodeling this body, His Temple.
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you,
whom you have from God? You are not your own.
1 Corinthians 6:19
AND – I am not less than 100lbs away from my final goal! My final goal was originally 160lb away. At this point, since the start of my journey (even before RBL), I have lost 65lbs! Also, just to prove to myself that I really was down to that weight, I put on a pair of exercise pants that I’ve been waiting to be able to wear. They weren’t yet acceptable for public wear, but they went on!
Onward towards the next 95lb loss with God, and 2 of my favorite Bible verses….
…This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve,
for the joy of the LORD is your strength.”
I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.
