Day 94 in my Mickey-meeting journey
My plan for today was to weigh myself. I keep trying to not have any expectations, so I won’t have any disappointment when I step on the scale. After all, that’s why I’m only weighing myself once a month. The scale depresses me, in general, so weighing less often is better for my psyche.
But let’s get real. I was hoping to be 30 pounds down when I stepped on the scale today. What I found when I stepped on the scale is that in the last 94 days, I have lost 28.6 pounds. And instead of being elated that I’ve lost 28.6 pounds, I was a little disappointed that it was not 30 pounds.
I guess after 40+ years of dieting, it’s just my human nature to want more. But here’s the thing: I already feeling the difference. I feel it in the way my clothes fit and in my ability to be a better employee and in the improvements I see around my home. I just plain have more energy. I owe it all to nutritious foods and more movement. I quit “dieting” and I am down 28.6 pounds. Halle-j-lujah!
And so I press on, dear readers. Thank you for taking this journey with me. Meet you at the Kingdom!
BTW: I really owe “it all” to the God who loves me, who considers me precious and keeps me close. A God who is the King, which makes me a princess…a princess who is 28.6 pounds down. 🙂
