Reality Check = Gratitude
Sunday, July 12, 2020
It does get frustrating when the scale doesn't move or keeps going up a pound and down a pound and up again. People have said, well it took years to put the weight on and it will take time to get it off again. That reminder does put things in perspective. Yesterday, the tape measure came out out and measurements were taken. So the scale isn't moving but the tape measure is. All this gardening and outside work is taking off an inch at a time. It is too easy to go into the martyr or victim phase of dieting. I'm glad that there are other signposts besides the scales. There is the tape measure and clothes fitting better. A friend cut my hair today and when she finished, even my face is looking thinner. So, I end this post just with a sense of gratitude. All good things come from God even the discipline of the last year.
