Last night was our team meeting. Which included our weekly weigh-in, followed by the group workout. I was very disappointed after my weigh-in; I’m up 2.4 pounds. Essentially the weight I lost last week found me. I made it through the workout. I drove home, and cried into my husband’s shoulder. I work hard! I’ve been stepping out of my comfort zone trying to conquer a fear of water. The 2.4 pound increase was just too much for me. I felt overwhelmed, and frustrated. I slept horribly last night. I kept thinking over the things I need to work on and where I’ve made good decisions. I also reread Hebrews 12:1-3 asking God to show me what I’m supposed to be learning this week. Stop focusing inward, and focus on Him. Do what the verse states- throw off the shame. Run the race with patience and discipline. That will be my daily prayer- Lord help me focus on You! Guide me on this race. Life is a race; a journey.
Back to the little victories-
I put on a pair of pants that I’ve not been able to wear for a while. Back when I wore them, I had to have them stretched, and they’d still be tight. Not today! They fit just right. I’ll take that little victory today. It’s just awesome how God knows when we need a bit of encouragement.
Now to keep my eyes focused where they need to be. Simply know this is about how God can use my story; it’s not about me.

Lisa, take heart, muscle weighs more than fat and the fact you could put on the pants is proof you are losing the unhealthy weight! You can do this! In fact you ARE DOING THIS!
You still have this my love. Proud of the battles that you have been conquering each day. No matter how big or how small you are still victorious.
Lisa I appreciate your openness and thank you for sharing. In your story of what you have shared include so many victories! Don’t lose sight of the gorgeous piece of art you are working on (one of God’s favorite masterpieces- YOU😉) Because of a blemish (number on stupid scale ). Yes it’s frustrating but your efforts matter – they are adding up to results- strength, energy, better fitting clothes! Keep up the awesome job – because You are worth it !!!
