Hey! I just wanted to quickly check in and share my progress this week. This week was kind of a struggle….I had some stressful/emotional eating on Wednesday night that set me waay back in my points range and then just “normal” stuff came up so I didn’t see as much progress as I would have liked on the scale. I know there are weeks like these and it’s okay.
I also know that I need to get all my workouts in and not treat myself as much as I did. I think I was partially disappointed because I weighed myself at home a couple hours before my official weigh in and my scale had me 1.5 pounds lower, so when I got to the meeting and only had a .4 loss I was kinda bummed. Just goes to show that not all scales are the same! (And maybe I shouldn’t weigh myself at home….maybe…)
Last night my mom and I went to see Cinderella and it was so good! A great reminder that kindness goes a long way and in our beauty-obsessed culture there are far worse things to be than fat, “fluffy”, broken out, needing a haircut, or dressed in sweatpants. What’s inside is what makes us beautiful!!
Our worth is not in what we do or say or how we look, but in the incomparable value God places on us as His children.
“He saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit.” Titus 3:5
Amen! I’m going to sit in that truth for awhile this Holy Week…His mercy and holiness…not my effort.
Have a great day! Have you seen Cinderella yet?
