I crossed my legs yesterday.

This may not sound like such a big deal, but it is.  I haven't been able to cross my legs for years.  I did it without thinking...just crossed them!  It was comfortable.

All those years I couldn't cross my legs because my legs were just too big to cross.  There was too much fat in the way.

It made me think about other stuff that gets in the way of being who God means me to be.  Like when I insist on people doing things MY WAY.  Or my tendency to procrastinate.  And then there's how much I am able to enjoy grumbling about something.

This little taste of freedom in being able to cross my legs makes me wonder...what else have I been missing out on?   It's a big question, one which I don't expect to answer quickly.  But I want to open my eyes and start being aware of those self-imposed encumbrances in my life that are keeping me from being the person I am supposed to be.  I guess I want to exercise my character and get rid of the "fat" that represents my unwillingness to change.

Just thinking about this makes me want to take a nap!  At least I don't want to eat a donut.  That's a positive start.



  1. Oh, I remember the day I was able to cross my legs for the first time as a major milestone in my weight loss journey! Little things like this really mean alot...not everyone can relate. I LOVE your blog! You always give me something new and exciting to think about. Keep up the great work!

  2. I agree with Vicki! You always keep us thinking and make us ask ourselves questions like, "What is the fat in my life that keeps me from being the person I am supposed to be?" Thank you for keeping us on our toes!

    Love you,
    Your sister
