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 and thanks for checking up on me weeks ago. LOL I'm doing okay but just don't have my heart into the computer time these days. I'm active and working on my eating especially now that I've gone gluten free. Boy a new learning curve but has pushed me to eat much better.

Hope all is well in your world and your family is well. I went to CAMPWANNABEFIT and am struggling as I just am not social enough which is odd for me. I am trying to keep pushing to have weekly plans. It is far less stressful than BLC so you might check that out if you feel a change is needed. I was so fried after BLC that this was a breath of fresh air.

Have a great weekend!!

Hugs!

Weezie

Hi Elsa! Been thinking of you. How are things in your world? Are you doing the BLC next round? I don't think I am, but I'm still trying to decide. Anyway, I would love to hear how you are doing! Take care, Caiti
