Empowering Thought for Today:  Obstacles are apart of Life:  Press On!

I actually get it. Like I really comprehend. Obstacles are going to be apart of your life as long as you live. Many of us want a quick fix or we want problems removed, but life doesn’t work that way.
Jesus tells us in this life you will have trouble. (John 16:33)

The Apostle Paul quotes ” we are hard pressed on every side , but not crushed. Perplexed but not in despair”. (2nd Corinthians 4:8)
Although trouble comes and hard times come we as believers should not be phased or moved by any of it. Why? Our trust and hope is in our God.
We must stay focused on the author and finisher of our faith! ( Heb. 12:10)

We must press into God; pursue him with a madness ; obey him for our very lives depend on it.
Don’t be discouraged; be encouraged you are a victor not a victim .
Amen, Lady P.

My Weightloss Journey-Bumps in the Road

I’m down for the count! I started getting serious about my health last November,2013. I started making serious headway when I approached individuals who had struggle with obesity and overeating conquered if and was winning. March 18th and I’m still on the journey. Here are the toughest things I’ve had to endure trying to lose weight:

1. My negative mindset -changing my belief system about food .

2. Education- you must understand your problem with food before you can tackle it and come up with solution

3. Process -my new favorite word. You didn’t develop bad eating and exercising habits overnight so you will not get rid of them overnight. You have to think endurance and patience with weight loss not quick and easy.

When I encounter hiccups in my progress I have to remember that everything is a process.

We are priceless , therefore keep going!
