So this morning, after the scales made me mad (because obviously it was their fault!), I realized that I am still holding on to some old habits. Habits that I must change. I do know that weight fluctuates. I do know that I could weigh tomorrow and “possibly” have lost the same amount of weight (especially considering the numerous trips to the restroom today) – though I’m doubtful of that. Know what I else I know? I know that this gain is not a defeat. I know that I must make the permanent changes to have a permanent result. This is not the easy way out. This is work. This is hard.
I know that I am not to take this gift from my Creator for granted! Most importantly, I know that the scale does not define me. God defines me and I am a work in progress. I am continually growing and learning and embracing my role as His child…as His daughter. Those are the truths that I cling to. Those are the truths that define me and that pave the way of this journey.
"I praise you [God] because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." ~Psalm 139:14
