I faced some difficulty challenges in my life. Quitting tempted me, but somehow, I knew I had to hold on.
My weight loss adventure last year took a back seat to injury and pain. I sidetracked and gave up. Now, however, I taking another shot at good health and losing weight.
I even tried to join Wendy Speakes’ 40 Day Sugar fast. I never got started.
I attempt exercising, but my back pain limits me.
Now, I know I have to come back and try again. My life depends on. I lost almost 40 pounds before, but gained most of it back.
Quitting is in the Past
To get back on track, I need to forgive myself for letting go of my goals and dreams. I feel like such a failure, but in Christ, I do not find condemnation only love. When you struggle with an issue, pray for strength from the one who can make all your goals become reality.
Next, I need to devise a new plan with more realistic goals. I can’t loose weight and keep it off without a long-term plan.
I need to fast intermittently and exercise at least 15 minutes daily.
I will attempt my first seven day fast beginning Monday. I want to eat fewer than 1,000 calories and then return to sensible diet in three-week increments. I think if I use a diet for two weeks and take one week off to eat healthy foods I love. I can’t binge for a week on junk and expect to make progress.
I need to arm myself with an arsenal of support resources this post featuring “Top 7 Bible Verses to Help Lose Weight.” One of my favorite versus focuses on encouraging Christians to remember:
1 Corinthians 10:31 “Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
I also recall the verse that really encourages.
Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
What areas in your life do you struggle with? I will pray with you if you pray for me too. Please leave any requests for prayer in the comments box even if you just write the word “prayer.” I will pray for you.
I hope this song encourages you.
