Weightloss Wednesday


Alright gals I need to get serious about this...I spent a great deal of time on Sunday discussing this with the Lord. Turned all my eating and lifestyle habits over to Him, and rededicated this journey to Him. I just cannot do this on my own!

I  have gained considerable weight and some of my old health problems are beginning to resurface. ( itching, bloating, congestion from food allergies)

I did well the last three days and plan to continue down that path. The weather is not good for walking in and I am hoping it clears soon.

I want to pass on this link for Devotions for Dieters: http://www.crosswalk.com/devotionals/fordieters/  Here is todays devotion.

Revelation 21:7
He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.


Being thin is a wonderful goal. Regaining health and vigor is also great. Looking and feeling good are important, but both pale in comparison with how good it is to please the Lord by being the best people we can be. When we diet, we not only gain physically, but also spiritually. Resisting temptation tones our spiritual being as well as dieting tones our physical being. When we reach our goal in our diet, we reach a second goal, as well: We do what is pleasing to God. When we are faithful to do the will of the Lord, we can rest assured that we have an eternal home with Him.
Today's thought: Dieting makes me a spiritual overcomer as well as a physical overcomer!


  1. When I started this journey....I went to the altar at church and laid it down, so to speak. I needed and wanted His help. He is still there helping, but I walk away sometimes...just like every area in our lives.

    How wonderful a devo for dieters. I am marking that one for sure.

    Be blessed,


  2. Love the little "devo" you shared...it really hits home!

    {{HUGS}} dearest!

  3. I think you'd benefit from the Fit Mommy meme as well. :)

    You can never have too much people support, although without God's support you'll get nowhere.

  4. Try aerobics. I do mine indoors. It is great no matter what the weather throws at you.


Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting you. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to you. Psalms 143:8
