Staying in the Fight

Less than 24 hours ago, I posted the reality of being human in this journey of being fit. Sometimes it really just sucks and isn’t fair. So I wallowed for a few days in my insecurities and negativity…and ate a few cheeseburgers while I was at it.
I wasn’t going to go to the gym today. I wasn’t quite done with my wallowing. I wanted to sit on the couch, pet my cat, and watch mindless TV. No human contact unless necessary.
But I have learned that God can whisper something so quietly to me that will totally stop me in my tracks and put me back in the right direction. A song, a memory, a friend.
A few weeks ago, I posted a before/after pic to Mandisa, who sings my song “Overcomer”. I can’t tell you how many times I have listened to that song. Every single time I work out or on my way to working out. I just wanted to thank her. She commented and I ended up getting 1,000 likes and comments. I was floored!
Fast forward to now, a day that I wasn’t wanting to be an Overcomer. Feeling defeated in my fitness and stuck in my weight loss. Mandisa, after 2 weeks, shared my story with her fans – close to a million people. Tears fell, encouragement broke through my insecurities, and I stand proud. I am an Overcomer. Now, on to the gym – I have work to do after those cheeseburgers.
