|Lifetime members and staff holding a 50 year Weight Watchers timeline! Do you see Olivia with me?|
This past weekend, I worked at our Weight Watchers One Amazing Day event. The event took place all day at our Weight Watchers store. It was so encouraging to hear other members and staff share their weight loss stories!
My favorite part of the day was when I shared my own weight loss success story with Weight Watchers members. Honestly, I never thought I would be asked to share my story, because I am in the process of losing my baby weight. However, that didn't matter, because I was asked to share my story anyway!
As I shared my story I could not help but get emotional! I was overwhelmed with thankfulness, because of all that God has done in my life through my weight loss. I needed to be reminded of the freedom that God has brought about in my life through my weight loss journey!
On Sunday, our Pastor spoke about bringing your reality into the light! Today, I am coming out the darkness and into the light, because I have bought into Satan's lies about me for too long!
The truth is...I did not gain the "perfect" amount of weight while I was pregnant. I gained too much and for months I have been beating myself up about this. Yes, I ate a lot while I was pregnant, which I do not regret, because my baby girl is healthy!
The truth is...I have not given up on myself and my healthy lifestyle! I did not let myself go gain all my weight back. Not to mention that when Olivia was six weeks old, I was back on Weight Watchers.
The truth is...my weigh in this week was so frustrating, because I gained back the 0.6 pounds that I had lost the week before! Am I struggling to lose this baby weight? Yes, but I am not giving up!
Are there things in your life that you are hiding from God? What lies have you been believing? Maybe you need to take time to be honest with yourself and God, because only then can you be set free!
