It's ALL Me.

I said this when I was kicking my journey into gear back in August..."I'm not who I wanna be and the only thing standing in the way is me." I found this picture on Pinterest last night and it really sums it up!

It's all me. I'm the one that put the food in my mouth -- no one held a gun to my head or threatened me to eat the food that I ate. But I'm also the person that has decided enough is enough. I'm still the one that makes the decision on what goes food goes into my body. I'm the one working to be "slim" and healthy. No one can do it for me. I do thank God for the people behind me pushing me along the way when I start to lag. He knows my willpower needs a boost from time to time, but I CAN AND WILL DO THIS!!!


I AM A CHRISTIAN. I love the Lord with all my heart, soul, & mind. God has really blessed me more than I could ever imagine, but the truth is that Satan HATES me!! I face struggles & temptation every single day of my life; but no matter what happens, I still strive to do the will of God. Because I put my faith & trust in God, He has provided relief for me & my family time & time again! God never fails to comfort & remind me of His promise that “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5). There have been countless times that I did not deserve God’s grace & should not have been granted mercy. But He has granted me mercy & forgiveness, as well as goodness & grace -- all for the purpose of sharing it with those I meet along the path of life. Some days are better than others, but you always have to remember to keep pressing on! Keep praising HIM & He’ll never fail to bring you through the storm.
