KEEP FIGHTING!!

The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
Psalm 34:17
 
There have been many times that I have cried out to God for help with this weight loss struggle that I go through. I lose three pounds; gain back two and it makes me want to quit! I want to stop fighting the battle of the bulge and give up. But, instead I cry to God for help.
 
Usually this happens at the end of the day, after a day of binging or feeling sorry for myself and I binge and feel sorry for myself after I've weighed in the morning and discover I've gained weight. Why do I do this? Why don't I call out to Him sooner? I don't know, this is just how it has been for me. 
 
But, every time God hears me and the next morning I wake up ready to fight again. You see He never gives up on me, even after I've given up on myself. He gives me strength to keep pressing on and He will do the same for you.
 
Don't give up, call out to God for help. It works for me. It will work for you, too.
 
God Bless and Happy Weight Loss All

  1. I am finding that my biggest challenge is my pop addiction, and it may seem silly to call it an addiction, but it is what it is. I get anxious and stressed when I don't have it. It has become a comfort to me, in times when I should be crying out for my God. So if I'm gonna be honest...it is an idol, plain and simple. It has taken the place of God in my life as my comfort, joy and peace. If I step back and really look what i'm battling it is a bit silly that I'm having a battle with a soft drink...time to let go...

  2. Brooke, you are not alone with your pop addiction. I understand and will be praying with you that you and God can get it under control. One thing I have done to help me is to start drinking ice tea and only allow myself to have a soda when we are eating out. I won't lie, it's not easy and I'm struggling too, but together we can over come this addiction. Please keep me posted. Warmly, Rhonda

  3. So my hubby and I talked today. He has been hounding me about giving up pop for awhile, and so my focus has been,"gotta give it up!" We agreed today that the pop isn't the problem, it's my ability to do things in moderation. I think God want's us to enjoy things, but when the enjoyment over takes us it gone too far. That is where I am right now. So I am going to keep track of calories for awhile via a site called "lose it." Not to become obsessed over calories but to train myself a bit as to what too much really looks like. Pop will be an option but will limit how much I can eat...so I will have to make a choice. I usually don't tell people this but I need accountability in the worst way. I weighed myself this morning...I am 5'4" and I weigh 231 lbs. I have never been this big! But I am so ready for a change!! I'm ready to let God have control of this part of my life and live in freedom..

  7. Just found your blog. I am using scripture to speak to my mountain (obesity) each morning and throughout the day. It gives me focus for the battle. I don't just read scripture i read it outloud. It has been a powerful tool for me. I also recognize my body is the Holy Spirits dwelling place. What a messy home I have made for Him.

  9. Just found your blog.. I seem to struggle with the same things.. lose 3 gain back 2 and feel so discouraged at the end of the day...I have found that I have not been putting God first in my life and have become so overwhelmed with everything. So I am turning over a new leaf starting tomorrow and I will be putting the Lord first in everything I do including my weight loss. I will let you know how it goes. Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10
