I believe I am finally motivated enough to get serious about this weight loss thing. Last week I was totally off. I didn't even really try. And then yesterday being Mother's Day, well there is no way I was going to attempt to diet on that day. My family all loves to eat so whenever we get together that's what we do.
I have been praying and praying for God to bless me with the motivation to do this and today He has! I am so grateful. Last week I was feeling so guilty about not exercising and watching what I ate. But today I know I can do anything through the power of God.
What was really cool was in church yesterday the thought popped into my head "you are not living to the glory of God. God does not want you to make food a god. Everything you do should be to glorify Him." And I was suddenly hit with the desire to do that! This is something I have been struggling with ever since I was saved. I believe some of it had to do with the depression I had been feeling. I prayed for healing and I have been speaking it and it has come to pass. A couple great books that have helped me are
"Your Best Life Now" by Joel Osteen and "The Prayer of Jabez" by Bruce Wilkinson. I also have put lists of confessions up to speak everyday and that has helped also.
I feel so empowered today, it is amazing.
So far today I have had a handful of pretezels and a hard boiled egg.
I plan to eat a chicken salad for lunch and pork stirfry for dinner. I have 40 calorie fudgesicles and 100 calorie packs of Hostess cupcakes (so good) for a snake if I need one.
And now it's time to exercise!!!!
