Today I am thankful for my bathroom scale.

Note that I didn’t say I liked it. In fact, at the moment the scale and I are not on speaking terms.

However, just like a good friend who is always gonna tell you what you need to hear whether you want to hear it or not, that bathroom scale never lies.

And this morning it told me to quit eating so much junk.

Which is why I’m not currently speaking to that friend. I am, however, back on my diet.

“And so, dear brothers, I plead with you, to give your bodies to God.
Let them be a living sacrifice, holy — the kind He can accept.
When you think of what He has done for your, is this too much to ask?
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but be a new and different person
with a fresh newness in all you do and think.
Then you will learn from your own experience
how His ways will really satisfy you.” –Romans 12:1-2 (nlt)

This is my first attempt at a blog challenge, something you might see friends doing on Facebook – “__ days of Giving Thanks.” I thought this was a very fitting challenge to get myself back into a regular habit of blogging again.
