Happy Friday All!
I hope you’ve had an awesome week. I’ve had a tough one – didn’t lose any, but didn’t gain any either. I am reminded daily that this is a marathon and not a sprint.
I knew it was going to be a tougher week because people are starting to notice that I’ve lost weight. Then, they start to compliment me. I smile and say “Thank You” but I want to scream at them “Can’t you see I’m not done yet! How can you say congratulations when I’m only one third of the way there? Did I look SO awful before that this is that much better?” That’s what I want to say, but I don’t. Because they are genuinely happy for me and so many are proud of me. I truly do appreciate their support and praise. It means so much.
BUT I’M NOT DONE YET!
This is what I must remind myself every day. I AM NOT DONE YET! I have more weight to lose. I have eating patterns that I’ve had for over thirty years to break. I have so much more to do. I AM NOT DONE YET! Then I think about the fact that I will never be done. It will never be easy. I will always have to fight. Always.
Then I think about my heavenly Father looking down at me. He’s always there. ALWAYS. He’s there to help me fight the fight. He’s there to help me learn and grow. He’s there to help me be a better me. Because, you know what. HE’S NOT DONE YET! For that, I am eternally grateful.
