Where I'm Coming From - Words 4 Life: the battle of the bulge

Wow! Time realy flies when you're busy, doesn't it? I feel like I've been running in circles for the last month. I realize that a large part of the problem is that I am seriously overweight. Now, I want to be cute just like most people, but the real issue I see is that I am much more tired and moody and obviously God cannot use me the way he wants to when I'm in this state. A fat, tired cranky husband & father is not as nice to live with and I want to give my family better than what they've been getting. 2 weeks ago I was at an all-time high of 231 lbs. (It hurts me to even type this). My goal is to get down to 170 lbs. (I'm 5' 8" by the way). When I get there I will post before and after pictures. I pray that as I push myself in this area, that the discipline I develop will spill into the other areas of my life that need it. This is definitely an area where I will need to be consistent in prayer. I'll keep you posted and I would love to hear from any of you who are fighting this same battle.
