I’m curious if a 50 lbs. weight loss is even possible for me. I can’t even remember the last time I weighed 150 lbs. It had to be high school. I’m terrified of this weight loss journey because I’ve failed so many times before, but perhaps this time will be different since my mindset is a lifestyle change and not just another fad diet. Much prayer is needed to get this train out of the station. 2 months strong and I’m still going for the gold. The eating healthy has been a challenge for me. I love to cook, but sometimes I am not always afforded the time or energy. I ate really bad this weekend; I mean fried food and all. I got the worst stomach ache from it too, so don’t think I didn’t pay for it. I felt horrible. I am in need of much prayer and support from those around me. 2015 WILL be a different and better me! I have no choice, but to love on me. I’ve loved on so many others for far too long. Don’t get me wrong, my ultimate goal is to better myself so that I can help in bettering others going forward. However, I have to be a bit selfish, on a temporary basis, in order to reach that goal. So here’s to loving on Ebony in 2015.
I set a goal at my business conference to create wealth for myself and others, bring out the positive, be a better child of God, be successful, obtain my entrepreneurial goals, and provide for my family. I’ve got commitments to keep and goals to reach. My dreams will come true because its Gods’ will for my life. To my naysayers, I absolutely adore you and pray for you daily. You have fueled me to prove you wrong and help you in your aspirations as soon as I am able to, for that’s my gift from God. He commands me to help his children. It took me a while to learn that, but I’m getting there one day at a time. Do I always feel like it? Uh, that would be a huge NO, but I must be obedient. I’m learning to forgive myself, in order to forgive you. There is no perfect man/woman, I’m realizing that also. Yes, we are always told that, but human nature doesn’t always allow for the heart to understand fully what Gods’ word truly means. We want to stay mad and not speak, but we know for sure that’s not what he wants. My parents have taught my sister and I that, and trust me it’s the hardest pill to swallow when folks to you wrong. You’d like to turn the other cheek alright! LOL Well, I say all of that to say, I’m learning that the stress of the world has contributed to my weight gain.
No longer will I stress over the ridiculous things I am not in a position to change, but I will make every effort to change the things that I can. I’m using life’s’ experiences to allow maturity to walk away from those things that require me to do so. My suggestion to all is to love on YOU and the rest will follow, fulfill your dreams, make plans to do something different this year, and always have a plan B. Don’t wait on others to write your life’s story, seek God, and listen to his words; for they are the only ones that matter. Please do not allow your fear to cripple what is to be. I’ve allowed that to hinder my dreams for far too long, 8 years to be exact. I know what I’m made of, yet I allowed those little voices and other’s detour me from doing ME!
It’s time you began to walk again. Get out of that wheelchair and see yourself in the future; naked and happy! What ways will you challenge yourself to lose the weight? Will it be the negativity you have spoken over your life, that’s the first to go, or will it be the opinions of others? Only you can decide that.
