I came on to my blog here to copy the link from one of my posts to share on facebook and I realized I haven’t written anything in a while.  The reason is I don’t feel like I’ve made much progress to share about.  In my last post 11 months ago, I stated I was at my heaviest weight of 290 and I was starting over.  How many times have I said I’m starting over? Plenty!  Well just a few weeks ago, I weighed in at my new high of 299.  Yes, I have “started over” again, and I’ve lost 5 pounds since then.  I still don’t know what it’s going to take for me to make changes that are going to last.  Will I ever give up my love for food for a healthier, more enjoyable life?  Food is my downfall for sure.  Or is is lack of self-control?

Instead of continuing to beat myself up, I will share some of the ways I have made progress in the last 11 months.  This blog is not only about physical transformation, but overall transformation.  It’s just that the physical affects other areas of my life so much.

Here are some positives:

  • I joined a Saturday morning run/walk club.
  • I’ve walked 2 5ks since joining the group in addition to the regular Saturday morning walks.
  • I have cut down on sodas in the past few weeks and am drinking lots more water.
  • I stepped out of my comfort zone to take a new position at work.
  • I have spent more time in prayer during times of stress.

I’m reminded of the song by Brandon Heath, “God’s Not Finished With Me Yet”.  I’m so thankful He never gives up on me!
