Happy New Year! I forgot to weigh myself yesterday, but I did this morning. Good Night, I must have had a very enjoyable Christmas and New years.
I stepped on that scale this morning and oh man. it's not good. It. is. time. I let myself take too much time off after the HM. My eating habits have been less than stellar. it's time to get back on the low carb horse. I have the "know how". It's the "want to" that I struggle with. I mean, don't get me wrong. I WANT to lose weight, but honestly ever since I reached ONEderland, I've struggled. I was so elated to be there I got complacent. But DH recently lost some weight (yeah, yeah, good for him! haha) so, now I weigh more than him once again. It's not a HUGE difference, but again weighing less than him made me complacent with my weight.
Complacency is dangerous. I don't think we're ever supposed to be complacent. It's time to get out of this and be JOYFUL.
I recently joined an online study. We will be memorizing 24 bible verses this year, and the great thing is... you choose your own verses. My first verse is Jeremiah 29:11. I know it, but I don't KNOW it.
"For I know the plans I have for you", declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." NIV
At this very moment, that's the verse I need on my heart. I need to relish that God has DECLARED that he has a better life for me. A life of joy and purpose and not complacency.
Suck it complacency. You're goin' down!
