Lies that I need to stop telling myself..
#1. That I will NEVER weigh a normal weight, even after taking 80 lbs off, I STILL find myself FEEDING that thought..
#2. That I don't need strong boundaries [I can eat 3000 calories here and there].. hello, that's why I've had weeks without a weight loss!
#3. I lie to myself when I say, I can't leave my house or I can't exercise.. of course I can!
I NEED THE TRUTH OF GOD'S WORD TO SHATTER THESE THOUGHTS!!!
Also, I'm excited about how I feel this week.. for the first time I feel lighter [why did it take so long]? truthfully, I think it had something to do with my husband hugging me last night.. for he said, "look Lynn, I can wrap my arms around you and touch my forearms ..not just his finger tips".
It dawned on me, I am feeling small around the middle and lighter on my feet...
OK, and if that was not enough, my brother came over the other day and he stopped dead in his tracks.. looked me up and down shocked, and ran out to his car to get his wife so she could see...
My brother said to me, for the first time in my life, I am not the heaviest in our family!
I'm 20 lbs less than him! (Truth is, even at birth & childhood I was the heaviest of all my siblings!)
OK, and I will not let my age defeat that thought..
