WLW - revisiting

 Well, its been awhile since I have participated in a Weight Loss Wednesday.  I must confess it has not been a great few weeks for me in this area.  We have had so much going on and it feels like between the changes, the loss, the stress, the celebration... well, those all trigger different kinds of food traps for me. 
Lately I have done some emotional eating.  I have been lazy about cooking healthier.  I have resorted to junky fast food. I have allowed myself to inch back up to 185lbs (I had gotten down to 182).  But I refuse to see this as a failure.  Only as part of my journey. 
Life has ups and downs... and so does my weight apparently. I have felt a bit like I am on a roller coaster lately.  I am working through a lot of stuff right now and I know God will bring me through this valley to victory.

Psalm 73:26My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever.

Amen! It can be so hard to eat healthy when life is stressful. I pray God's peace over you my friend. You're right, though. It's just all part of the journey. You can do this!

Thanks for being a part of the WLWed community!

I have regained several of the 15 lbs I had lost. I am hoping to turn it around! We can do this!
