...tooting my own horn...


ok, so you know those rare occasions when you are really proud of yourself? when you accomplish something others don't, or achieve a difficult goal you've set for yourself? well, today is one of those days for me. blow the shofar!
i've lost 21.6 pounds in the past 4 months, and as of today i am now a lifetime member at weight watchers. my goal was actually 19 pounds, and i did it! yippee!
i set a goal and relied on the spirit of self-discipline which God placed within me (2 timothy 1:7) to do it. there were many, many, MANY days i said NO to instant gratification, and kept my eye on the prize. the last four months have been void of lots of various comfort foods, and i've learned to choose healthy foods instead. and i've learned portion control and moderation. boy have i ever. i've begun exercising consistently in the early morning, which has benefited me physically and spiritually. those early morning jogs/walks are treasured time in my schedule to worship and pray!
anyway, i can do anything. and so can you. just believe in yourself and the power of self-discipline and control that has been placed within you. thanks for letting me brag on myself. love to all of you!
