The last time I wrote about this, I was caught in a place of frustration and self-pity. I had been comparing myself to other women and let it get me discouraged. I agree with Lysa TerKeurst in the following quote from Made to Crave, I think Satan uses those moments to wear us down:
"...in the grand scheme of things, I know this is a shallow concern. But, if I allowed my brain to park in a place of dissatisfaction about any part of my body, it would give Satan just enough room to move in with his lie that strips me of my motivation: 'You're body is never going to look the way you want it to look, so why sacrifice so much? Your discipline is in vain.' That's why I have to seek the Lord's persepctive and, as Psalm 103 reminds us, 'forget not all his benefits.' " page 83
So now I am declaring "No Parking" to my brain. No parking on that place of hating my appearance. I am motivated to be healthy.
