I'm trying not to focus on the scale, but it has been SO encouraging to see it moving down! :) For those of you that have asked for advice on how to get started or even on how to stick to it once you start, I thought I'd include a few things that may help.
WW got me off to a good start, but to continue throughout this month, I have really been relying on the things I learned from reading a book called "Every Body Matters" by Gary Thomas. This is a book written by a Christian and looks at the reasons for having a healthy lifestyle from a Biblical perspective. It is straight-forward and pretty blunt in places- which is exactly what I needed.
I'll list below a few of my favorite quotes from the first section of the book. Maybe they can help you too?
