I want to thank all my dear and blessed friends for their kind words. I admit, when I first saw this picture I was so ashamed of myself and cried. But as you all have said that is my before. I will try to get my son to take a half way after picture this weekend.
All of you are right, this journey has taken me away from that woman in the picture and I pray that on this journey I am learning a healthy way of life that I can take with me forever. I truly believe I am doing an injustice to God for the way I was treating my body. Funny, I dont smoke, or drink but food and laziness were my demons. I am trying to turn my life around one step at a time. (I am sure some of you are rolling your eyes, but thats ok).
At times I slip up or fall back into my harmful ways. But, I do find the strength to step back up and search for guidance. Sometimes it is thru prayer and other times it is thru reading my dear friends blogs. Sometimes I just need advice and others I need a good kick in the bootie.
I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. God Bless
