What can I say about this day? Well, not much to say. I'm definitely not the same person I was 314 days ago. I'm smaller, clothes are too big, I'm more active, I eat healthier, my confidence is through the roof, my hair is healthier, face is clearer... Lol guess there is a lot to say.
Yes, I'm a better me, physically, spiritually and emotionally. Yes, I'm a better me. I know I have the will and want to be healthy and fit, and I will reach my goals. I know who God is, I know who Jesus is and all that He has done for me. I know that I am redeemed because of the price that He paid on the cross. But I didn't know how much my decisions were influencing others.
Since I've lost weight, I have had a few of my friends tell me how I've influenced them to want to lose weight and that made me feel awesome! Wow, me. I was so out of shape and I'm still working on me, but to know that what I'm doing impacts someone else's life, in a positive way was good to hear. The lifestyle change that I have made, the dedication that I have, was making people look at their own way of living.
Another lifestyle change I made has people looking at their lifestyle as well. When I started truly living for God, changing the way I think, talk, the books I read, music I listen to, the company I keep... People were telling me, "You're not the Courtney you used to be." I knew I had made a change but I didn't know that people would notice lol. I mean I wasn't expecting people to acknowledge the change that I had made. But what had me feeling good is when people started telling me they start going to church, they start praying, they were reading their Bibles more... I get excited when I see people living their lives for God! I can't imagine how proud God is when His children return to Him, but I know I get excited! So I'm very happy to give all the glory to God for my weight loss, turning my life around and the seed that has been planted in others. Stay blessed Sparkies
