I believe overeating is a mind issue...
Let me explain...
When I was younger I wanted to eat whenever I wanted, however I wanted and thought I would not gain weight. I told myself I would rather be fat and HAPPY then worry about my weight or eat healthy. If you noticed I linked eating whatever I wanted to happiness. How many of us have fallen into this trap? If we have a bad day we would rather reward ourselves with a nice piece of chocolate cake then a movie.
However, all those years added up. I spent my time not taking care of myself and gained weight and became overweight. If I kept going and did not change my lifestyle and my thinking I could have ended up fatter then I was.
Eating healthy is important. Not just eating whatever I want whenever I want it but eating what I need. I asked the Lord to help me lose weight and He gave me the peace and the strength that I needed. I felt this week that the Lord kept reminding me do you want to eat this? OR DO YOU NEED THIS?
There were times that I met my calories of the day but I needed carbs after my workout to give me energy. I ate not just because I wanted to or because of an emotional decision but because my body needed it. I ate what my body wanted not what I WANTED.
Eat what your body needs. Eat healthy. You will see the results you want. First though you need to change your mind set. Do not believe the lies of I cant be healthy, I cant be thin! I cant be beautiful! I cant run a 5K!
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.
Belief is the first step to weight loss success.
Believe that you are beautiful.
Belive that you are healthy.
Believe that you are strong!
BECAUSE I THINK YOU ARE! And so does the GOD I WORSHIP! :) GOD BLESS YOU!
