God Is So Awesome!

Thursday, September 19, 2013

God is just so awesome. He knows my weaknesses and He is right there to help me overcome them.
I attend a ladies Bible study on Thursday mornings and they always have one group of ladies bring breakfast items. I know my weakness so I have been taking my own breakfast bar. However, God also knows my weaknesses so He has seen to it that, along with the muffins, sweet rolls, casseroles, etc... there have been bowls of fruit. So I can fill up on fruit and not even open my breakfast bar.
He is also helping me with my dark chocolate addiction. I have not had any since August 4!! I have even strolled down the candy aisle at the store and God has seen to it that none of it hops off the shelf into my cart. I know that maybe dark chocolate is a healthy chocolate but in my case I think of the commercial that says "you can't eat just one". And that is me with the DC. In the past if at the end of the day I had maybe 50 more calories I could have I would allow myself to reach in the freezer to get the DC. But what I would pull out would for sure multiply those 50 several times over. Here I am, an adult, and I can't be trusted. How sad is that.
I have also pretty much stayed on track since August 4. I say 'pretty much' because there have been a couple times when 'it' got away from me. But always the next day I was back on track.
I will join Pixie with her challenge to see us to the New Year. I have about 12 pounds to reach the goal I have set for myself. When I reach that goal, I may try for another 10. And that is all doable if I stay on track 'pretty much'.

    very well said Arlene....I am right with you and Pixie....I have 5 more pounds left to get to my goal weight....I'm hoping to get there by Dec. 11,
    I know 5 pounds is not a lot but it has taken me nearly 6 weeks yo get this first 5 off...It seem to be harder than the 200 I lost a few years back.....

    I'm here if you need support and to help cheer us on to our goals


    God is walking right next to me each step of the way...
