Lies and Other Stuff..

Sunday, January 31, 2016

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.. emoticon

#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!


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". emoticon It dawned on me, I am feeling small around the middle and lighter on my feet... emoticon

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... emoticon

My brother said to me, for the first time in my life, I am not the heaviest in our family! emoticon 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.. emoticon

    Lynn: I can't believe that you wrote this GREAT blog on Jan 31st and this is the 10th of Feb. and I'm just now reading this. It is emoticon and so encouraging. I have fooled around now for 5 years on sp and I have lost 27 lbs, but I just keep listening to all those same lies. I see you have a post from LJCANNON or Jeannie. She is the one who told me about sp a great lady and Its good to see her on here. So sorry it has taken me almost 2 weeks to see this blog. Guess I better go back to bed and try to get a little more sleep.

    Lynn, you are doing great! It took me forever to realize I wasn't as big as I once was. Our minds can play awful tricks on us, which let Satan get a toehold and move in.

    Just keep your focus on God, and continue the great work.

    Love you!
