I am trying to lose 30 lbs. It is weight I have gained and lost for the last 20 or so years of my life. My weight problem didn't really start until after College. I remember getting a job at a print shop and my friend and I began to eat fast food every day for lunch. Before I knew it I was around 160 lbs. I didn't wake up to the fact I had gained so much weight until I looked at pictures of her and I at a campout. From then on I have struggled with weight. I have never really 'dieted' ...
I am trying to lose 30 lbs. It is weight I have gained and lost for the last 20 or so years of my life. My weight problem didn't really start until after College. I remember getting a job at a print shop and my friend and I began to eat fast food every day for lunch. Before I knew it I was around 160 lbs. I didn't wake up to the fact I had gained so much weight until I looked at pictures of her and I at a campout. From then on I have struggled with weight. I have never really 'dieted' persay, but my emotional state would dictate whether I ate more or less. If I was going through a great deal of anxiety, I would not eat and lose weight, but if I was in depression, I would eat more and gain it back. I would go from a size 10 to a size 16 in jeans. When I would gain weight, I did try to eat less and exercize more, but I usually felt completely defeated after a short while and would just give up. I just couldn't fight the 'hungries'. I had no idea how to not eat when my body would scream for food. And the food it would scream for was the worst kind.

I have for the last few years been steady at around 150 lbs. I thought to myself that I was overweight, but not enough to really worry about (I thought I could lose 20 lbs if I really needed to.) Well, this January I weighed myself and realized I had gained 10 lbs again. I don't know exactly when because I haven't weighed myself in a long time, but I am sure it had to do with all the holidays and baking I did. Not to mention the fast food and my developement of a desire for sweets. So now I am trying to get serious. I want to lose the 10 lbs I gained this year and the 20 I have gained over the last decade.

I am not looking to be super thin. I am looking to be healthy. Thats why exercise is imortant in my plan.

I can do anything I want to if Christ has not said no, but some of these things aren't good for me. Even if I am allowed to do them, I'll refuse to if I think they might get such a grip on me that I can't easily stop when I want to. For instance, take the matter of eating. God has given us an appetite for food and stomachs to digest it. But that doesn't mean we should eat more than we need. Don't think of eating as important, because some day God will do away with both stomachs and food.
1 Corinthians 6:12-13

Psalms 34:19
"Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all."

this is from the movie Tommy, but I love these lyrics and think of it as describing God.

Listening to you,
I get the music.
Gazing at you,
I get the heat.
Following you,
I climb the mountains.
I get excitement at your feet.

Right behind you,
I see the millions.
On you,
I see the glory.
From you,
I get opinions.
From you,
I get the story

3 food questions to ask yourself before eating: Do I really need this? Will it benefit me? Will I regret eating this afterwards?
