This has been a very tough week for me. I found out I have gallstones and will be seeing a surgeon in April. Not the news I had hoped for!! But I continue to press on, it's just a small stumbling block.
I went to my Weight Watcher's meeting today and I stayed the same. I am very thankful for that!! I have not been able to exercise at all. Today I will start with a small workout session.
I wrote these down from the Weight Watcher's room today:
Helpful Habits- Build a strong foundation
- Ask for help
- Learn from experiences
- Manage your environment
- Manage your feelings
- Manage your thoughts
- Monitor yourself
- Take care of yourself
These are habits I need to incorporate into my life. The first one I've done...asking for help....I joined weight watchers. That is a hard thing to do. Admiting that I needed help. I've always been an independent person....admiting that I needed help with weight loss was the hardest thing I've had to do. I'm an addict when it comes to food. I'm slowly learning from experiences. Sometimes I don't even think when putting food in my mouth. It's like I'm in a haze...then it's over and I'm left with a feeling of failure.
I am working on getting into that mindset that I CAN do it, instead of the I can't do it. One of the many things I learned so far from "Made to Crave" by Lysa TerKeurst was to lean on God not myself or any human. Psalm 18 1-3 says, "I will love You, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold."
If you have not read that book I highly recommend you do. This book has changed my life, both physical and mental. My walk with God has never been stronger. I've also lost a total of 11 pounds in 4 weeks. But it's not all about the number on a scale.
