You may have noticed that I've been writing a lot about my health and weight-loss challenges and achievements during the last few weeks. To be honest, I think I could have written about it even more than I have, but I just didn't want to bore you with it all.
But here's the thing. Working at this discipline of nutrition and health is what a good portion of my life consists of right now. It's one of the big things that God has chosen to work in me at this point in time in a way He hasn't before, and so it's what I'm going to be most apt to talk about. And it definitely has been about discovering Liz...discovering who I am in Christ, one life lesson at a time.
So in regards to getting fit, I have to share one of the major victories I've gained. It's all about the b-r-e-a-d.
You see, I love bread and starch and carbs. I like to sit down with a bag of chips and munch away with nary a care in the world. The problem is that I know it's detrimental. I just didn't know how I was going to cut back.
Even so, I have been choosing to eat fewer servings of bread/starch for several weeks. Do you know what I've learned? I don't need all that starch. I'm okay. I won't die. In fact, I'm content.
You know, I'm happy about that. Happy that I'm experiencing change. Thrilled to know I can do something I didn't think I could do. Thankful for the Holy Spirit's power at work in me.
