When, in the course of my life, it becomes necessary for me to change how I handle certain aspects of my life, I know God gives me the strength to do just that.
After all, I was made by Him and therefore have not only the right to be healthy, live to a ripe old age and enjoy myself, but I have a duty to my Creator to be a good steward over that which He has entrusted me with.
I shouldn’t have to feel tired, depressed and unattractive, and I refuse to feel that way anymore. I was created to be energetic, happy and beautiful and I will only allow myself to think on those things which are pure and good.
I know losing weight is hard. There are no quick fixes where weight loss is concerned. When it comes to food, I recognize the fact that I have an especially hard time with planning my meals to be both nutritious and satifying at the same time.
But it’s worth it to me to dedicate myself to the task of losing weight, and I will do what it takes to meet my goal weight of 165 pounds.
I am dedicated to my plan for weight loss, and to get there, I will walk and exercise five times a week. And I will make time for myself without feeling guilty about it or letting anyone else make me feel guilty about it.
Now is my time, and I WILL make it happen. This is my Declaration of Independence from the obstacles I struggle with daily. Let the fireworks begin!
