New Beginnings

I'm a working mom with a great husband and a beautiful little girl. I come from an obese family on my mother's side. My father's side of the family is mostly healthy. So when we visit one side, I'm surrounded by enablers and on the other side I feel out of place as the fat cousin with the divorced parents, out of place.

No more of those thoughts. My daughter was premature, born at 27 1/2 weeks, 2 lbs 7 oz at birth. Thankfully this had nothing to do with my weight. We were lucky, ...

How funny is it when you realize the only thing getting in your way is you. I've noticed that I have the know how. I just need to keep up the motivation and will power. I've got lots of reasons to do this right.

A hard part of dieting is showing our stomach who is boss. When our stomachs rule, we lose. Turn to the Lord when weakness sets in. He will see us through.

QUOTE

1 John 5:4
For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

The greatest enemy we face as we diet is not food, or the gnawing hunger we endure. No, the greatest enemy we face is the lack of faith we have in ourselves. When the going gets tough, our tendency is to throw up our hands in surrender. That cannot be allowed to happen. As faithful people, we are tied to a special power that comes from beyond us. We are recipients of the holy power of God. That same power raised Christ from the dead and enabled Him to overcome every temptation that this world could throw at Him. With that kind of power, how can we fail at anything we do?

Today's thought: To diet means to do it!

If we will diet prayerfully, constantly relying on Jesus Christ for comfort and strength, then we will please the Lord and lose weight at the same time. With Christ we become overcomers
