Now that I have gone to Basic Leader School and completed my four required training sessions, I am officially a Weight Watchers leader!!
Did you hear me? I am a Weight Watchers leader? WOW!
I have to sit back and process this for a moment, because I am more overwhelmed then I thought I would be. I am not overwhelmed emotionally, by the significance of this accomplishment.
Please don't get me wrong...I have been excited about the idea behind becoming a Weight Watchers leader, because I get to walk with other people as they are on their own weight loss journeys. I am excited for God to use me in ways to continue to glorify Him through my weight loss. However, what I did not anticipate is the fact that this would be such a huge milestone for me.
I have come so far and sometimes I forget that.
I never would have imagined in my wildest dreams that someday I would be a Weight Watchers leader. I can still remember the feels I had as I attended my first meeting back in October 2008. I was nervous and unsure if I even wanted to be apart of this program.
God changed everything for me. He used Weight Watchers to help me lose over 90 pounds. He also used my weight loss as a way to change me to be more like His son, Jesus. I never thought God cared, but look at the beautiful transformation that can take place when we let go and let God be Himself.
Thank you Lord for NEVER giving up on me.
