I have to admit. Weighing in scared me. The concept moved from dreaming to reality. I have weighed myself before today. Obviously, who hasn’t but today this whole life change thing became real. My desire to change meets my need to change and clashes with my desire to be comfortable.
I like to drink too much Dr. Pepper and mix it with not worrying about how much I weigh or how high my blood pressure gets. It may be irresponsible but it sure does feel and taste good.
This scale represents me taking control. It represents me saying, “NO MORE!”
No more to just doing what feels good. No more just letting things happen in my life. It’s time to make things happen.
As I step on the scale, I am reminded that
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
– Invictus – William Earnest Henley
This scale is the ship to a New world and I am taking that one small step….
