All I Can Be
Monday, June 04, 2012
The day I couldn't bend over to tie my shoes was the day I realized how disgusting I felt. Then, I found out I weighed more than my mother. These two events are the reason I am on SP blogging right now. I realized I was at my top weight ever and I wasn't enjoying it. I couldn't remember for the life of me the moment I stopped losing weight and started regaining. All I know is it took me by surprise and I realized I wasn't happy as I was.
My sociology professor once told my class that without realizing it, many jobs turn a person down if there is a skinnier applicant qualified for the position as well. Sometimes they even do realize it. When I remembered those words, I realized I wasn't going to be a youth pastor one day if I didn't step up and get healthy.
So here I am... about to begin my weight loss journey with God. My motivation is four simple words that carry a lot of meaning for a girl on a journey: "All I Can Be"
I've been on an emotional/mental journey with God for almost two years now. It's been a crazy ride but it's been a ride well worth getting on. I believe this weight loss journey will be just the same -- well worth it.
So, here's to becoming "All I Can Be." I'm excited to see how far God will take me. :)
