Losing weight is a little like watching your hair grow.
It takes a long time, and you have to go through that Awkward Stage. But every once in a while you have a Good Hair Day. That's what today feels like! 40.2 Pounds!
I was thinking about how my eating habits have changed. It has been a long time since I wanted to eat for emotional reasons. I no longer stuff myself until I'm sick. In fact, I'm happy with small amounts of foods. My tastes are changing. I really enjoy eating fresh fruits over sweets, and I'm starting to notice how salty most processed foods taste (because I've quit using salt so much.)
This encourages me, because I realize that even though I don't SEE the changes happening from day to day, they are surely happening. I'm on the right path...just gotta keep on moving those feet!
12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Phil 3:12-14 NIV
