It has been a month since my last update on my battle with weight, and unfortunately the past month has not been good. It would be easy to not write anything, but I promised to write updates, and this is as much for myself, to keep accountable to anyone who does read this.
Between the weather and my back, I haven’t done any consistent walking, and I haven’t used the bike in my office more than a few times. My eating has definitely not been healthy, although I have tried to limit to one serving. However, that was not the case over the past week since Thanksgiving.
And I have also noticed as my eating habits and resolve have slipped, so has the amount of time I spend reading the Bible and talking to God. I’m still consistent with that every day, but the quality and quantity of time have taken a hit.
With the whole Christmas holiday season upon us, and events to attend and places to travel, I am going to be tempted to throw in the towel and just tell myself I will start over again after the new year has arrived. But that is NOT what I want to do. Maybe, just maybe, writing this down and sharing it will remind me of my commitment. And it is just not a commitment to myself, but a commitment to God, to surrender ALL of myself to Holy Spirit.
That is my prayer, and I thank those of you who have assured me that you are praying with me, as well.
Grace and peace, y’all…
