That's when I had to rely on my strength. It came from a few places, but most of the time, I'd pray through my son's nightly feedings. I'd sit listening to K-Love on the radio, relying on God to get me through to the next feeding. Just to the next one, then I'd be okay. Then through to the next workout. Then to the next week. My faith grew through this process. I grew through this process.
I also had another source of strength; Bob's book, "Are You Ready?". He really helped me through this book. I got to read about other people who had gone through the same thing I was going through, and seeing how Bob handled their journeys helped me through mine. I felt like if they could do it, then I could.

In this book, he explains how to set up a plan for yourself; how to get started, find your BMI, and where you should be. He made it simple for me, and something that I knew I could do. I loved this book, it's still on my Kindle and I still read it often. If you are trying to lose but don't know where to start, I highly recommend this book! Reading about other people struggling made me feel like I knew exactly how they felt, and they kept pushing through. If they can keep pushing, then I could, too.
We all need strength just to make it through to the next day, but we need serious strength to make it through an exercise routine daily. If you make it a priority to get your life in order though, you will be surprised at your own strength. I didn't start out being strong, I started out broken. I started out at the lowest point you can imagine. I crawled my way back up. Just know that if you are at that point, you are not alone, and you can get through it. You can get back up and do what you need to do to make a change in your life. Start small, with just a simple routine, and pretty soon it will become a habit! Then it will become a lifestyle.
