I say it most often in private--when i'm getting ready for the day or about to shower, i poke my pointer fingers at the tire around my middle and fiercely tell it "you are going down!"

that's about it.

Food- you can do this for 1 day, and then repeat it that idea everyday.
Exercise- this is only temporary, 1 moment in time, 1 hour of my entire day.

Mine is "you got this--you can do it!"

Just do 2 things for myself every day:
1. Spritually, read
2. Physically, move!

Why is it hard to do just 2 things for myself??!!!!

Consistency is more important than intensity

"Rather train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come" (1Timothy´┐Ż4:7-8)

"Jesus answered, 'The most important [commandment] is, 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength'" (Mark 12:29-30).

"Make it happen"
"Just do it"


Weight loss is accomplished with the mind.

A person who wants something WILL find a way....a person who doesn't will find an excuse.

Which do you prefer?
The pain of self discipline?....or...the pain of self regret?
