This is not what I had in mind. I set my goal for 261 this month and today I moved a notch in the wrong direction. I wanted to see 268 on the scales and instead I saw 270. This is not easy and it will get harder.

It’s easier to be happy and thankful:

  • when things go according to my plan
  • when the sun shines on me
  • when I have no problems
  • when I have no pain
  • when I can see what I believe

Today’s Sunday. I believe what I can’t see. I believe in my invisible God and trust Him to do invisible, incredible, and impossible things. My biggest obstacle today is not losing another pound of body weight but rather my struggle with faith and sight.

      Thanks Dorinda! My body is not my buddy – we never have seen eye to eye in things. We’re working out our differences. Thanks for your encouragement.
