Thursday Thoughts - 31 Days #2

I posted this latest side-by-side update on Facebook this week.

I'm at the point in my health journey where most of the time, I don't even remember the girl on the left. I don't remember what it was like to eat a whole box of Little Debbie cakes or spend entire days in a row doing no form of exercise. I can't even remember the last time I went 3 days in a row without running.

That girl on the left, she was still me. She was still stubborn and sarcastic and loved cooking and reading and cats and glitter and friends and coffee and Jesus. But the girl on the right, gosh...she is just so ME. She's the girl God wants me to be. She's who I've seen in the mirror for YEARS but had never been able to figure out how to actually BE.  She's the dream chaser, the go-getter, the persistent one. She does hard things. She doesn't ask why - she asks why not? She is going to run a marathon...and that's just the beginning.

(P.S. Looking for a little motivation? I'm playing in a DietBet challenge where we will all compete to lose 4% of our weight in four weeks. The game will start on 10/06/2014. Join me today

  1. Oh my gosh..I can so relate. And I love "the girl God wants me to be!" At 44, I have just now within the last 2.5 years embarked on finding me...and figuring out who God wants me to be...and it's exciting, scary and so new!! But I am embracing it!! I feel at 44 I am finally figuring out who I want to be and who God has created me to be!
