I wouldn’t eat Christmas candy until the family gathering on December 21. Then I ate one piece of white candy, one piece chocolate, one cookie, and one cookie candy. According to the plan the Lord gave me I can have desert, but only half. Since in my past I would binge on candy by the handfuls, I concluded that one piece of each kind is a half serving.
My usual weigh-in day is Sunday, but Saturday I decided to just take my punishment and get over it. I expected to gain 2 pounds or more. Taking a deep breath, I stood on the scales.
What? It can’t be. No, this is not right. Try it again. Get back on the scales and look. No, it can’t be true! Back on the scales again. Wow!
I lost another pound. What? Even though I ate candy for desert after every meal this week, I lost weight. How can this be? I made my goal. . .to weigh what it used to say on my driver’s license before I got convicted for lying and changed it. I have now lost 71 pounds. Amazing. Thank you Lord for helping me.
