I have never really dealt well with it!
digging down deep
denial… so much denial
to my selfish, fleshly ways, and
to what God wants for me.
and for you, right!?
Thus, the reason for this post!
I am excited about what the Lord wants to do in my life…
but with change comes
a lot of pain,
oh, the stretching!
Have you ever seen the movie Princess Bride?
Sometimes I feel like I am on that stretching machine that
they used on our poor, dear Wesley!
GOD IS TELLING ME,
and has been for what seems
my whole life,
to be disciplined when it comes to
my eating habits and weight.
I am an emotional eater…
I eat when I am really happy and relaxed,
telling myself that
eat that ice cream and bag of chips.
DON’T get me wrong,
I believe the saying, all thing in moderation,
and enjoying the things that God has made –
Including a nice, fudge-filled ice cream sunday,
now and again.
But all things in moderation!
I eat when I am sad, sick and need some comfort.
NOT GOOD! NOT GOOD AT ALL!
The thing is, our world if FULL of people
with this very same roller coaster,
How do I know this?
Because when you and I are waiting in a long line at our favorite grocery store,
the rack is FULL of magazines screaming,
new ways to lose 10 lbs,
the newest and greatest FAB diet,
how to trim your body for the Summer~
But here’s the thing,
we cannot make LASTING CHANGE
in our lives,
on our own!
WE NEED GOD’s Help!
WE NEED the right perspective!
WE NEED to do it for HIS GLORY!
If you struggle, JUST LIKE ME,
with losing weight,
and keeping it off,
won’t YOU join me on this journey!
We will meet together every Friday to share
what is working,
and what is not.
What is your “Weight-Loss” story? Please, won’t you share with the “class”?
According to YOUR body, what works and what doesn’t?

HOPE to accomplish
in our lives!

What 5 things worked this week?
What 5 things didn’t work?
5 Things That Worked:
NONE!~ Thus the prompting of this post!
5 Things That Didn’t Work:
- I didn’t have an appetite and didn’t eat much all day long
- I was then starving when 6 o’clock rolled around
- I was tired and stressed from a long day of not eating much and grabbed and inserted any food that looked tasty and yummy into my mouth
- I was filled with a lot of bad food, and a lot of guilt
I lost hope!
Write a post and share your Friday’s Five- and let us encourage one another
to lose weight for God’s Glory in our life!
