Back at the Weight Loss Mode

Wednesday, January 27, 2016

I don't know if you know this but this blog was originally about weight loss. I would food log here, write about my many bad days and I blogged about how God really helped me grab a hold of this weight loss thing. 
 One of the biggest lessons I learned was that "I am not what I weigh." Back in those days I had a lot of fun by putting my head in random t-shirts as you can tell:
I had a lot of time in my hands
This before and after was right before I had my first born (I've weighed way less than this after having 3 wonderful children):
God really helped me then and He will help me now
Motherhood perfected the way I think about myself and weight loss. Motherhood has made life sublime in a way that my priorities are better. I want quality of life out of this weight loss thing. I plan on being healthy so I can enjoy this abundant life God has given me. I also want to be a good example to my sweet kids.

I'm back at the weight loss mode again friends. I have decided not to bore you with details but I will post the occasional update. Oh, if you want details, join my Facebook Group where we encourage each other to be healthy and whole (click here).

I have learned that looking back too much is not good. For example, if you're driving and keep looking at your rearview mirror, you'll have an accident. The thing to do is to look forward and move on with confidence. I have been encouraged to leave the past behind and move forward. I am thankful for where I am on the way to where I am going. Yes, I did just run a marathon and I am thankful for the health to do that. I am eager to run better ones as soon as I get my BMI under control.

I can't say that weight is a struggle. I think weight for me is something to recalibrate every now and then. My now is here and it's going to happen. Hope my friends, has always been my best ally in this journey.

Do you find yourself driving while looking at the rearview mirror? What is your best ally in your health journey?
