With God All Things Are Possible!

It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed , because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23


It's a new day

  That is the WW song that is everywhere now.  It does make me think about my favorite verse that every day is a new day though.  Sometimes when I look back on this journey as a whole it feels not worth it.  It has cost me so much.  It has cost me a lot of money.  A lot of energy.  A lot of time with friends.  A lot of people treating me different.   A lot of missing out on old favorite foods.  So much time!  It feels like a high price  to pay somedays for a smaller size pants that is still a lot bigger size than most people hope for.  Somedays it doesn't seem like a good trade to me.  Some days I miss a lot of the things that have changed.

  And then it's a new day.  And the habbits I have worked for 2 years on building into my life come into play.   I can feel the changes in my body being stronger and being a newer me and I love it.  I don't struggle to get off the couch.  I don't feel so ashamed of myself.  I don't hate myself for the choices I made about what I ate.  I don't miss the money I would have spent on something anyway.  I don't care if I am not a great size because I am a better size. 

   I don't care that I missed out on my favorite food when I go to bed that night.  Tempting food is so hard sometimes.  When I know everyone is going to be having pizza except me.  It is so temporary though.  Like I have never cared I didn't get something after it was over.  I have no regrets of not having had a piece of cake or pizza in the past.  It is just the temptation of the present.  I try and tell myself to hang on cuz in 20 minutes when everyone is done eating, I won't feel ripped off anymore, just proud of a good choice.

  So, I am rambling, but what I want to get down here is that some days make this feel not worth it.  Then there is a new day, or God's new mercies on a new morning and I see the advantages of staying the course even on those days it doesn't feel worth it.  Right now I feel like it is.  I just had a healthy breakfast, I am heading to the gym.  Have a crockpot of veggie soup on the counter, and my day planned out and it feels good.  So when I go back to read this on a day when it feels like it stinks, I can just hang in there till it's a new day!

  Oh and the pic is that I can wear my hubbies jeans now.  Yes they are too tight but i got them buttoned!
