Ok, so you didn't lose the weight this year

It's nearing the end of the year and many if us had goals of weight loss and improved health for the year.

So, where are we now? Have we made progress? Have we reached our goal?

For some of us, yes, we have! Others... not so much.

Personally, I am still working on 10lbs of baby weight that I need to lose [and never find again]. Thing is, my baby just turned 4 years old and well, I'm getting a bit frustrated.

I am having to resist the urge to just toss up my hands and wave the white flag. Can you relate?

Instead, here's what I did [and you should too] since I'm not a quitter and neither are you! Try these changes and let's not give in!

1. Social media accounts refresh. If a certain account feed makes you feel inspired , keep following that account. If not, unfollow or mute for a bit. No hate, just protect your mental health.

2. Get inspiration from ladies who look like you [weight, height, fashion style, budget etc]. There is no need in getting all excited about a style/look that you can't currently wear comfortably and with confidence or seeing items you can't afford. In this season, it's wise to get inspiration that you can relate to.

3. Keep going! Don't give up. True, you didn't hit your goal. You might even be further away from your mark. However, now is not the time to give in. No time for pity parties [trust me, I have attended my fair share of parties]. Around the holidays, it's easy to say, "I will just get it together in January!!" and let undo all your progress so far. Every little decision matters. It's ok if you have a setback. Just show up again tomorrow.

4. Ask God for help! Holy Spirit gives us self-control - that entails all aspects of our lives. Read Galatians 5:22-23. Lady, have you asked God to help you with your health goals? If not, be sure to invite Him in!

Hebrews 12:11 is the verse I'm meditating on this week. It's all about discipline. You've got this, lady!
