Consistent living - It's not about me

Most of the time in a healthy living journey a person has to focus on themselves and the changes they need to make in their lives. But that doesn't work for me. As a follower of Jesus Christ. my life's desire is to know Him more and make Him known.
This life is not about me. It's about Jesus. It's about His gospel and it's all for His glory. In this healthy living journey, I will make changes to become healthier but I will also look for ways to encourage others on their journey!

I have struggled with my weight and body image for as long as I can remember. I remember being called names like "tubby" and "sumo wrestler" growing up. I have had 4 children gaining about 50 lbs with each child by believing "I could eat whatever I wanted because I was pregnant." Each time I was able to lose the weight before becoming pregnant with the next child.
I have found three trigger foods- wheat, sugar and caffeine and I am working to cut them out of my diet!! I am consistently working towards a healthy lifestyle by maintaining a streak of my goals.

Let me know if I can help you!

Nothing is impossible with God . Luke 1:37

God's strength is made perfect in my weakness! 2 Corinthians 12:9

“God, I recognize that I am made for more than the vicious cycle of being ruled by food, body image, and comparing myself to others. I am thankful that You made my body unique in ways that I can serve You and in ways that turn my reliance upon You. I need to eat to live, not live to eat. So I keep asking for Your wisdom to know what to eat and Your indwelling power to walk away from things and thoughts that are not beneficial for me." Our taste buds crave many things to satisfy, but only persevering with God will make us truly full.”
Lysa TerKeurst - Made to Crave

"When you get in a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and the time that the tide will turn."

Hi Elsa! So sorry I went away. I was failing miserably and sick of the whole subject, unfortunately. Kind of how you were feeling yesterday, I think, only I just threw in all the towels...! I gained back 20 pounds and spent a lot of time praying (and eating). I feel so, so relieved to have found this book and feel like I'm finally getting some control back. Glad things are going well with your family and you're getting some fun in! Things are going well here, too. My oldest (son) is getting married in a month to a wonderful young woman. My daughter just finished her junior year in high school and is looking for a job. She has an interview at a big grocery store near us on Tuesday that she really hopes she gets. My husband has been getting a lot of work lately in his business, so that's wonderful. He's in the construction industry, so things have been a little slower the last few years. I took a day off work today and my daughter and I are going to the next town to fit her dress for the wedding (she's a bridesmaid). She's only 5' tall, so it will have to be hemmed at the least. I'm looking forward to spending a fun day with her. Talk to you soon! Hope you're having a wonderful day. emoticon Lori

Hey Elsa! I have been thinking of you and wondering how you have been! How is the challenge going this time? I really miss the BLC sooooo much, but I think it's been the best thing to be away this time. Finally starting to figure out some things going on with me, so maybe be back within the next round or so. Have been missing you! Thanks for checking in with me friend! emoticon
