Over the last 11 weeks my life has been anything but sedentary. My body has endured things that I never knew it could do anymore; sometimes we under estimate what we can do. God’s word says “We can do all things through Christ who gives us strength.” Trust me when I say, I’ve asked God for lots of strength lately. My body is still screaming at me but I’ve never felt better.
When I started my journey at the Y, my goal was to lose as much weight as I can and do a low carb diet to get rid of this excess weight I’ve put on. I’ve endured the flu and shingles while on my journey but I never gave up. But something has happened in this journey; I decided not to diet and eat to live instead of live to eat. Sure I still love food and I have cravings, but they no longer own me. If I have a craving, I will take a bite and walk away. I don’t just sit there and gorge myself any more.
Exercise has become a habit and not a dredge. Sure there is some days that I’m really tired and just want to go home and rest. Sometimes we need to listen to our bodies. Rest is just as important as diet and exercise, but I can tell the difference when it’s much needed rest and when it’s the “just don’t want too.” But with saying all this, Robs Biggest Loser and this program at the Y has given me new life. It gave me a kick in the butt that I so badly needed to get back on track with my life. And for that I am truly grateful. Thank You for giving me life. This is not the end of my journey but the beginning for a new life.
