Todo lo Puedo... I CAN do all

Por muchos años traté de vencer la obesidad; pero yo misma había construido una pared de pensamientos limitantes que me impedían llegar a donde deseaba llegar… “Ya tienes mas de treinta años, no lo vas a lograr.” ; “Tu genética es mala.” ; “Nunca serás delgada.” ; “Cuando uno se casa engorda.” ; “Los cristianos comen mucho.” ; “Ocuparse del cuerpo es de gente poco espiritual.” fueron creencias que dominaron mi voluntad mucho tiempo. Pero hoy puedo decir con certeza que ya no vivo conforme a esas mentiras. Por años luché diciendo: “¿Cómo es que si “todo lo puedo en Cristo, no logro rebajar?” “Si Dios me dio poder, amor y dominio propio, ¿Por qué no logro controlar lo que me llevo a la boca?” En ocasiones tome una actitud conformista pensando que ya no había nada que hacer y que jamás lograría mi anhelo de tener un peso saludable. Pero hoy puedo decir con certeza que TODO LO PUEDO EN CRISTO porque El es mi fortaleza. Con el puedo alcanzar el sueño que veía como imposible.

Hace un año pesaba cerca de 50 libras más… Me sentía frustrada e insegura de mi misma. Se me hacia difícil aceptar y amar a la persona que veía en el espejo. Pero hoy la historia es otra. Hoy las mentiras ya no dominan mi voluntad y camino firme sin mirar ni a derecha ni a izquierda. Se que un largo camino me resta, pero con Cristo TODO ME ES POSIBLE.

No hay palabras que puedan expresar lo que se siente al estar camino a lograr algo que tanto se ha anhelado. La mayoría del tiempo río a carcajadas mientras recuerdo todas las libras y pulgadas dejadas atrás. Realmente no conozco palabra en el diccionario que pueda describir el gozo que siento. Cada día veo como me acerco cada vez más a una versión más excelente de mi misma y eso añade más gozo a mi gozo.

Una mejor versión de mi misma… eso es lo que quiero ser. No quiero ser como Salma Hayek, Catherine Z. Jones, Jennifer Lopez, Miss Universe o Angelina Jolie. Quiero llegar a ser todo lo que puedo ser. QUIERO SER LA MEJOR VERSION DE MI MISMA… En esta ocasión no estoy perdiendo peso porque quiero ser igual a las demás, porque mi esposo quiera un “trophy-wife”, para callarle la boca a alguien, o porque me sienta llena de dolor. Estoy perdiendo peso porque me amo lo suficiente como para esforzarme minuto a minuto, aunque me duela y a veces sienta que me falta el aliento. Hoy me amo lo suficiente como para empujar mi cuerpo a limites que nunca antes había imaginado. Hoy camino firme hacia el propósito que Dios me dio y según dejo atrás libras y pulgadas, también dejo la frustración, la tristeza, la inseguridad, la falta de amor, el enojo, la rebeldía, el carácter blando y el miedo. HOY CAMINO FIRME HACIA UN FUTURO GLORIOSO QUE DIOS MISMO PLANIFICO PARA MI. Hoy estoy a la mitad del camino y les digo de corazón que nada tiene mejor sabor que el sabor de sentirse en control, victorioso y firme en lo que se quiere.

Gracias por su apoyo incondicional y por motivarme a seguir adelante.

Les amo, Edith

For many years I tried to overcome obesity; but I had constructed a wall of thoughts that prevented me to arrive where I wished to arrive… “You already have thirty years, you are not going to reach your goal.” ; “Your genetics are bad.” ; “You will never be thin.” ; “When you marry, you gain weight.” ; “Christians eat much.” ; “People who takes care of the body are less spiritual people.” Those were beliefs that dominated my will for a long time. But today I can say with certainty that no longer I live according to those lies. For many years I fought saying: “How it is that if “I can do all things in Christ, I can not lose weight?” “If God gave me power, love and self-control, Why can’t I control what I take to the mouth?” Sometimes I took conformist attitude thinking that there was nothing to do and that I would never have a healthful weight. But today I can say with certainty that I CAN DO ALL THINGS IN CHRIST because He is my strength. I can reach the dream that I thought like impossible.

A year ago it weighed more than 50 pounds… I felt frustrated and insecure of myself. It was difficult to accept and love the person who I saw in the mirror. But today the history is different. Today the lies no longer dominate my will and I walk looking forward, not looking neither right nor left. There’s a long way ahead of me, but with Christ ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

There are no words that can express the way it feels when you’re on your way to obtain something that you yearned for so long. Most of the times outbursts of laughter feel me while I remember all the pounds and inches left behind. I really do not know a word in the dictionary that can describe the joy that I feel. Every I see myself approaching a more excellent version of myself, and that adds more joy to my joy.

One better version of my myself… that’s what I want to be. I do not want to be like Salma Hayek, Catherine Z. Jones, Jennifer Lopez, Miss Universe or Angelina Jolie. I want to be everything that I can be. I WANT TO BE THE BEST VERSION OF MYSELF… This time I am not losing weight because I want to be equal to others, because my husband wants a “trophy-wife”, to shut up the mouth to somebody, or because it feels like pain flood me. I am losing weight because I love myself enough to make my best effort of losing weight. Today I love myself enough to push my body to the limit, although it hurts and sometimes it feels like I’m about to die. I’m pushing myself to do things that I thought I’d never do. Today I walk firmly towards the intention that God gave me; and as I leave back pounds and inches, I also leave all frustration, sadness, insecurity, lack of love, anger, revolt, soft character and fear. TODAY I WALK TOWARDS A GLORIOUS FUTURE THAT GOD I PLANNED FOR ME. Today I am in the middle of the way and I can say with certainty that nothing tastes better than the flavor to feel in control, victorious and resolved in what you want.

Thanks for your unconditional support and to motivate to me to follow ahead.

Love you all,

Edith

Hey there!

Wondering what's up with with me that I no longer post here?

Well... I haven't being dieting for the last six months... So what's the point of writing here if I'm no longer FLYing to ONEderland!? I have a new blog with MY OWN DOMAIN, though. There's where I post about everything in my life. So, if you really want to know who I am, just go to www.asharedith.com.

Hopefully I'll start posting again here this week when I start my diet again.
Until then!
