I am just a Christian wife and home schooling mama trying to live healthier. I started my journey 3 and a half years ago now. I hit Lifetime last summer. I think I stayed there about 2 weeks. I didn't deal with it well. My life was changing so fast and I was dealing with some depression. The healthy choices I thought made a lifestyle were often replaced with emotional eating. I am just going to be honest and say I have gained a good chunk of it back although I am a little too ashamed to say how much as of now. However, some of the healthy eating habits did stick AND most of all, I am not giving up!
I have centered my weight loss around the verse (found above) in Lamentations. Every day God is good enough to give me new mercy when I have messed the day before up so bad, so why can't my eating be the same way? No more giving up when I mess up, every morning brings a clean slate to my life and my weight loss journey. It's a new day and God is good!
