I can't do it

I don't know if I can do this. It will be so much easier to just let it take me over. I don't know if I have the strength.
I took pictures of myself yesterday. I can barely look at them. When did it happen? When did I get so fat? This is going to be insurmountable.
I mean, do you realize that I need to lose almost 200 pounds? Most people don't even weigh 200 pounds.
I can't do this. I can barely breathe.
 But I have to.

I have no other choice. In particular I have three sweet faces and three sweet reasons to keep going, to take a step in the right direction. I have to. But I don't know how.

Yesterday, and today, I drank more water than I have in awhile. That's my first step. Can I keep going forward?? And after I get used to drinking better, what next? How on earth am I going to be able to lose so much? Is it even possible??

Yes, its possible. Yes, you'll do it. Because you will submit to Him.

He'll show you.

YES, you WILL be able to do it! You know how I know this?? Because through HIM, ALLLLLLLLL things ARE POSSIBLE!!!!!!!!

It's going to take time dear mama. Keep drinking that water. Lots of it. When you feel comfortable with that, set another small goal. Eat one more piece of fruit per day then you used to. After that, cut out one unhealthy snack that you usually have.
Leave notes and motivational reminders to yourself all throughout your kitchen. Post your inspirational pictures on your refrigerator.
Here for you!!! PRAYING FOR YOU!!!

YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!!!!!!

I have the same overwhelming feelings. Don't listen to the lies the enemy is telling you. Even though it will be a long, hard road, God will use your (and my) testimony through this situation! You are going to do great - we are here whenever you need us!
