In the spirit of tradition, I want to reflect on some of the things God has carried me through this past year. Some serious high points and some low ones, but over all, I've kept my faith strong in Him and He has never left my side!
I still can't believe I haven't lost the amount of weight I expected to lose in two years, but I also didn't plan on three surgeries in less than that. It feels like a victory in itself that I'm still trying and I haven't quit by now. I know it's what Satan wants and that makes me want to prove him wrong even more! I WILL get rid of this excess weight and keep it off, no matter how long that takes. I'm still happy with slow progress because it means I'm moving in the direction of my dreams.
If you're on a similar journey, please don't give up, even when it seems too difficult or overwhelming. Just keep trying and moving forward. Believe in yourself and surround yourself with people who believe in you, too.
Here's to bigger and better things in 2014!!!
