My Weight Loss Progress

One step up...three steps back!!!

As I sit here writing this I think…people are going to hate my blog…it always starts with a pessimistic snide remark about woe is me!!! But, despite the fact I’m usually on here venting after a horrible defeat of the week, I do really want to make permanent life changes. I guess I’m the girl who is stuck between a rock and hard place.

I’m working on myself spiritually …pouring myself into every Bible study I can find. I have a true thirst to become not just an associate of Christ but, a true disciple. But, I won’t go into too much detail because this is not a religious blog but my weight loss story. However, my spiritual development is intertwined with my desire to loss weight. With an already ridiculously packed schedule, I find myself picking between the gym and Bible study. 9 times out of 10, Bible study wins and I’m stuck feeling guilty about my laziness for the rest of the night.

However, I could be using Bible study as an excuse to not go to the gym…so I’m confusing myself. In a world where you have a million options on ways to spend your day…its tough to make health a priority. If truth be told…I have more than enough time if I quit polluting my mind with reality t.v…. a move that will help me both spiritually and physically.

Long story short….I woke up…motivated…eager…ready…..put on my gym clothes….grabbed my water bottle….went back and grabbed my earphones and cell phone….ran out the house, smiling, ready for my workout…door slams….and I realize….I have left my KEYS in the house and I am locked out!!!! So…. after waiting for someone to rescue me …my motivation died and I was left at home feeling defeated once again!!!

So, was that divine intervention telling me I’m perfect the way I am or the enemy trying to deter my plans????

Who knows??? I’ll try again tomorrow!!


  1. That is the enemy trying to defeat you. How many bible studies does your church have a week? Can't you even things out? If you attend 3 bible study classes then you can attend 3 days at the gym or doing some form of exercise. You have to remember that in God's eye your body is a temple...a gift that He blessed you with. You need to take care of that gift.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  2. It was divine intervention that gave you a test. It threw a hurdle at you to see if you'd overcome it. The same thing happened to me the first time I went to a non-funeral, non-wedding mass. On my way home my bike chain slipped off and I had to walk it home. At first I thought it was God telling me not to bother because I sinned enough for two lifetimes, but a good friend of mine told me it was a test of my faith; if I'd let something like that deter me from attending mass regularly. I've been to mass almost every Sunday since.
