I weighted myself this morning and was disappointed to have not lost anything since yesterday. Normally I weigh only once a week to avoid these disappointments. However, since I'm on this fast it's important to keep a closer watch on my weight.
Yes, this fast is mostly about turning my will over to Jesus, but it's also about loosing weight. I guess right now I'm really struggling with having the proper motivation for this. I also have to remember that it's not healthy to loose too much weight too fast. Slow and steady wins the race as they say.
I keep finding myself saying things like, "I WILL loose this weight!" Even though I've told the Lord that if He prefers to keep me at this weight, that will be ok with me. Arrrgh! Is NO part of this ever easy??
It's just so easy to get caught up in seeing those pounds drop and wanting to see it happen faster. LORD, please help me to keep my focus on YOU!
Starting Weight: 173
Current Weight: 165
