Weight Loss Week 9

Here I go again; I made the decision to work on my weight, again. I hiked Wednesday, Thursday and today. It actually felt good to get moving again. I think hiking is the only exercise I like, so that’s what I’m going to do, 45 minutes 5 days a week, for now. I’m moving my body! Keep moving!

I dropped 1 lousy pound, but that’s ok…… I need to pray when I’m hungry, flee from temptation (I made chocolate cupcakes last night for the kids, not wise), read the word, and keep moving. Jade has been doing p90x, I just can’t get myself to do it. One day I will.

Weight 177

It’s so hard to lose 1 pound and so easy to gain 4. I have a bitter heart, pray for me.

1 Peter 3:14

But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled.

If the example of Jesus teaches us anything, it should be that suffering is a noble and good thing when it leads to a better way. Our diets are definitely the source of suffering, but there is great blessing awaiting all who stick with them. God has promised special blessing to those who keep courage in the face of suffering and don't give in. Losing weight not only makes us look and feel better, but it draws us closer to God and His divine plan for us. Our suffering is not in vain. It is all to the glory of the Lord.

Today's thought: I will fear nothing, as long as Jesus is with me! ©All articles and comments on Dinky’s Hum Drum Journal are the property of Bridget Sherman and are Copyright protected.
