I started this blog to share how God Beautifully Unwrapped my family.
And, that story continues.
However, God is working in another part of my life.
He is unwrapping the layers of me to show the beauty He created.
This unwrapping is much harder than any part of our story with Trey.
This unwrapping demands all of me. It involves all that I have been, am, and will be.
I have struggled with my weight all of my life. Gluttony is my sin. Food is my emotional crutch.
If you want to know how happy I was during a particular time in my life just look at the condition of my body. You will find the answer.
I thought I'd beat this a few years ago. Apparently not.
Running helped me fight this battle last time. Then came the ankle and go-kart injuries. Followed by the weight gain.
I am back on the road. My steps are sloppy. My times are slow. But, one step at a time I will make it back to 26.2.
I'm sharing my story here for me.
It will keep my mind focused.
It will keep me accountable.
My words will be honest.
The truth will be raw.
Tears will be shed.
But, the words will heal.
Obesity killed my mother. I have to love my children more than I love that cookie.
It. Stops. Here.
