I am so blessed with the ability to share with you my journey.
I tend to be an emotional eater. This is the area where I have struggled for years.
I am confident that I am able to overcome this area that has tripped me up for years.
I am not where I was a year ago, but I have a long ways to go to reach my goal weight, which is to one day weigh around 140 pounds.

    Here is a New Daily Mantra!! Post it Where you Can see it....

    Pound by pound, inch by inch, choice by choice We will become healthy and fit!
    We struggle, but we grow. We fall, We will get up. Even amid adversity, We keep moving towards our goal weight.
    Today our portion size is shrinking and so is our waistlines.
    Today we are beautiful, We are fit, We are healthy; and more so every day!
    Today We are making the right choices and the right changes to have the body We want!

    First things first. You have to decide that you want to lose weight. Then you need to be committed to losing it. And next you have to have Faith in yourself that you can lose weight.

    Not only will you need Faith in yourself to lose the weight, but you are going to need Faith in God to lose weight. With out Faith we are nothing. God never meant for us to be nothing, He meant for us to have Him abide in us and for us to abide in Him as Healthy, Happy and Full of Faith in our selves and Faith in Him.

    As long as we have Faith in God there is nothing we cannot accomplish and the same is true in having Faith in ourselves. Our faith goes way beyond the pulpit, it extends to believing and loving what we cannot see unconditionally. So why is it that we cannot love what our God has created in His own image.

    Our bodies are a creation of our God's. He formed us with His own hands, so why aren't we doing what we need to take better care of ourselves. Don't we need to have Faith in ourselves?

    Let's take inventory of why we want to lose weight in the first place.
    1) Do you want to look better?
    2) Do you want to drop just a few pounds?
    3) Are you tired, out of breathe?
    4) Are you suffering from a major illness?
    5) Are you morbidly obese?
    6) Just can't see your toes anymore?
    7) Are you sleeping all the time?
    8) Tired of feeling over full every time you eat?

    Did I miss anything? Well, I think we need to start believing that we can stop over eating. Have Faith, Pray, God will listen. Use self talk, use motivational tools, provided hear on Spark People. Use motivational videos, keep a journal, write a blog and read your bible daily. Most of all pray before each meal. Don't be afraid to ask God for His help, that is what He is there for. Trust me He wants all His temples healthy too.

    Exercise is a must, be Christ like.... Jesus got in His daily walks. So when you hear some ask are you walking with Jesus, what will your answer be?

    How many hospitals don't have a chapel in it? There are so many missions, churches and other religious deities in this world today that provide healthcare and even weight loss information It would astound you. So yes, faith and weight loss go hand in hand.

    Know that you can do this, you can do all things through Christ. You are a winner, because you a child of God's and God does not make mistakes. You can track your meals, you can walk 10 + minutes daily, you can blog about your day and you can keep a journal and you can have FAITH in You, I have FAITH in YOU and I have Faith in GOD. We can do all things through God!!
