When I think of others on this journey with me I feel accountable. When I have a moment of "giving in" I think of each of you and pray that you will be strengthed too.
So I can use those times as a double whammy in the face of the enemy.
My accountabilty comes with my husband. We will weigh in on Saturday and record our weights on the calendar, it encourages us both when we see losses. I want to see him successful in his weight loss so I try to have things ready for him for healthy lunches. I am fortunate that he also likes to cook up some things ahead and he does cook some pretty good things. His favorite is Pizza Soup, that recipe will be on the blog tomorrow.
"Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you. Be self-controlled and alert"
1 Peter 5:7-8
Be self-controlled and alert.
Know this, we are to be self-controlled. We have to exercise our wills here. We can cast our cares on Him but He does hold us responsible for our part as well.
To be alert....know what's up ahead, around you and stalking you. This is where some planning really pays off. The adversary is pursuing you. But greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world ( and our refrigerators)
