But Behold, if ye will awake and arouse your faculties, even to an experiment upon my words, and excercise a particle of faith, yea, even if ye can no more than desire to believe, let this desire work in you, even until you can believe in a manner that ye can give palce for a portion of my words, Alma 32:27
In my previous journey where I actually lost weight, I came to the realization that this journey was very similar to Alma's description of faith. We have to do more than believe the principles of weightloss will work, we have to actually do them.
I know that eating in my calorie range, good wholesome food, and excericising will help me lose weight, but today I have to actually do them.
This 12-step journey also asks us to pray for help in the journey. We have been cautioned by church leaders that we don't need to pray over every single little detail in our lives, that are are "to do many things of our own free will and choice."
But if our eating is out of control isn't it right to ask to get control over our eating. To control what is "eating us" so that we can eat right?
My goal today is to do what I know is right, and ask God to help me do it.
