Feeling a Little Lost...
At Weight Watchers yesterday, most of my group of friends were up a little on our weigh-ins. Maybe it's the heat (it has been over 110 for the past several days here). Or maybe it's something else. I don't know. It's like we are all in a slump.
We had a fun time out together, as we always do. Then I came home and literally crashed. And ate. I'm supposed to have 29 points a day. I had 40. At least (I tell myself) I wrote them all down.
I am also telling myself that this, too, will pass. I must learn how to negotiate these turns in the road! It's just that sometimes...I feel so tired. A year ago, on a day like this, I got through it on sheer determination of will. But these days I feel like my will is spent out. I need another tactic. Something else to fall back on.
So I talk to God. I tell Him...I can't do this! I don't have the strength. I only have Your strength. I talk, and He listens. He loves me, no matter what. He gives me hope.
