It's been awhile, but much has been going on. I have been battling within myself these days. Today however, I believe without a doubt I can say I am in complete harmony. There are thousands of people online professing to be experts in the fields of exercising and eating healthy. However, I have yet to find one person who can relate to a person with disabilities. Most articles say change up your exercise routine often so that your muscles won't become conditioned to the same old routine. But, what happens when a person is disabled and their choices are very limited? I let this get deep within my head and started doing exercises (once again) that caused my body harm. My back was hurting so much I didn't even want to continue on this journey, then it hit me. From day 1 I placed myself and this issue in God's hands. I know without a doubt that He has given me the strength to get this far. So, what I realized is I have to stick with what works for me. Trusting God works for me. Doing the exercises that don't hurt works for me. I know without a doubt that if I do what I can do - God will do what I can't do. I believe this with all of my heart. From now on I'm listening to His guidance.
The great news is I am now 206lbs!! I am 7 lbs away from leaving the 200's and I'm so excited! I will never weigh 200 again in my lifetime. This I guarantee God and myself!
