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.
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!
