We all struggle

Thursday, February 11, 2016

I had to share this because I think it is important. We all struggle with something. No matter how put together we may look on the outside. My struggle is sweets. I could eat my weight in baked goods. I daily have to make a conscious decision not to. Some people struggle with an alcohol or drug addiction. The struggle is the same.

My point is we do not know what someone's struggle is most of the time. Just like they may not know your struggle. We should help, build up, encourage, and motivate others regardless. Be positive, be intentional.

Today I am intentionally sharing that I struggle with overeating sweets. Why?? so people will know my struggle. Maybe that will help someone else share and ultimately overcome something they struggle with. The positive side is that I have God and wonderful support system that knows my struggle and helps me. This is like a weight loss journey. We do not eat better, exercise, lose weight and then go back to eating bad and maintain our weight loss. It is a constant battle. Sometimes it is hard to maintain weight loss then to actually get to a goal weight. You can do this!

Be strong, be intentional, think positive and encourage others to do the same!!

    Like you, I rely first on our Abba's help & the encouragements I get from others & reading of success accounts & the wonderful articles here at Sparkpeople.

    God bless us with success in all areas of life!
