scale pull

This doesn’t happen much anymore, but when it does I feel the need to put it out there. This battle isn’t won with a “blink” or “nose twitch“. It’s won with constant prayer, relying on God, and recognizing when thoughts go astray… which is what happened today.

I put on my jeans, which I haven’t worn in a few days (sporting sweatpants lately). I don’t know what I expected. They are baggy, but I suppose I thought they would be baggier?? I really don’t know. It wasn’t till a couple of hours later when I started thinking about weighing myself and realized I was bothered by my jeans not being looser. Huh? Yeah, exactly.

So, I have to take a moment and fight back…

“I do not want to weigh myself! I do not care that my jeans aren’t actually falling off yet! The reality is, it’s only been 10.5 days! I am eating good foods! I am in fellowship with the Lord! I am trusting Him to bring about the changes He sees fit, in the time frame of His choosing! I am not just sitting on my butt, doing nothing; but, I am not going to borrow more responsibility than what is mine. I’m doing what I have the ability to do. The results… that’s God’s department. So,shut-up, and leave me alone!”

Don’t you just love battling the mind, lol?!
