I wish I could count how many times I have lost weight, and then gained it back. I bet many of us have done that at least a few times. But enough is enough! If you know me personally and have seen me lately, you know exactly what I am talking about. I have become very unhealthy. I don't just not eat right, I eat very wrong. I don't exercise. My blood pressure is more out of control right now than it has ever been before. I find myself so tired when I get home after work, that all I want to do is lay down. So today, with the help of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I am going to start making some changes for the better. I know I need to start out slowly so maybe this time I will stick with it. But I know I must do it this time. It is not fair to my daughter for me to be unhealthy. She has enough to worry about with school and "boys" ( Lord, help me). So this morning, I took the first step to getting healthy. I ate a nice breakfast, and I walked around the block. Granted, it was only one lap, but it was a start! So let's see...if I lose 3 pounds per week...times 7 weeks..that is... 21 pounds by this summer! I knew my Math Degree would come in handy...and my calculator!
Matthew 19:26 says, "...with God, ALL things are possible."
Father, help me to Glorify You by losing some weight, getting some exercise, and lowering my blood pressure. I know I can do it with Your help. In Jesus name, Amen.
