Diet The Bad Four Letter Word!

Sunday, May 27, 2012

Phil 4: 12-13 I know both how to be abased (humbled) and I know how to abound (rise above circumstances): every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

Thought For The Week: Dieting is a bad four letter word that we all use. It insinuates a beginning and end to the a certain way of eating. Some diets are so strict you starve on it. Some gives you plenty to eat and satisfies your hunger. We dread to diet. It is said, “Diet is die with a t.” Another thing I want to ask why do we diet. Most of the time it is for selfish and vain reasons. Nothing to do with honoring God or honoring our bodies. When we fail at dieting we let go of all of our inhibitions and eat those pounds right back on. When the weight keeps packing on we become ashamed and feel low. Take a look at what triggers bad habit in eating. What is knocking you off your path. Keep a private journals. Then go back an read the whole thing to get a good picture of what has been wrong. What is your need? What will motive you as you begin a whole new way of life. Planning meals to take care of your body the rest of your life. Incorporating good habits and good attitude to begin or continued with a life changing eating plan and exercise. We suffer when we start having problems, interference from others, or vampires (demons) sucking the life out of you time. You have to regroup yourself. Rise above the problems and interference. Don’t allow yourself to become overwhelmed, Calm yourself! Humble yourself, rise above all the obstacles blocking you goals to lose weight. Work at it. Be positive! Start using the term heaters eating and healthy lifestyle. This should be our aim, not some temporary diet. Be good to yourself!

    A million years ago when I was a young teen, I went on a summer retreat with my friend's family. I don't remember the verse from Scripture, but the theme was to honor the body that is a temple of the Holy Spirit.

    We need to honor the body that God gave us by taking care of it. If we abuse our bodies, we weaken ourselves and become more vulnerable to sin and temptation. And don't we want the best possible resting place for the Holy Spirit?

    I don't always remember this, but your blog today brought it back full force.

    So very true!
    There is a lovely young woman on my friend's list who says she refuses to diet. She does not focus on what she will lose, but what she gains - better health, strength, energy. She also says she focuses, not on what she can't have, but what she 'adds' in the way of healthy foods, like adding fruits, fresh healthy veggies, and lean meats and fish. I think she has a wonderful attitude.
