Stalls… I hate them

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me~ Phil 4:13

A few days ago I woke up with Phil. 4:13 running through my head and heart. Lately have been having feelings of failure, especially as it relates to weight loss. I know that I am not a failure but it is hard not to feel that way when the numbers on the scales refuse to budge.

I know that I am my own worst enemy when it comes to this area of my life.  I have come so far, but have just stopped dead in my tracks for the last four months. I lost 69 lbs in 2012 but have fought with gaining and loosing the same 5 pounds for the past four months. Sometimes I do not believe that I will ever make it to a healthy weight and life style.  

Allowing these doubts to seep into my mind get me off track every time. However, waking up with Phil. 4:13 in my mind reminded me that this is not my fight to fight by myself.  When I first started this journey I did not rely only on me, I relied on God. So I am digging out my “Made to Crave” book and rereading and refocusing on the process of the journey. I am going to stop relying on my strength to fight this fight, because I can’t do it on my own. I will win this fight.
