Reading Material


Saturday, January 19, 2013

A book that has helped me in my weight loss journey is "Made to Crave" by Lysa Terkeurst. She is a Christian author, president of Proverbs 31 Ministries, and this book changed my life. She writes about the fruit of the spirit of self-control. It was certainly lacking in my life. I remember telling my doctor before I started Spark People (over, again!) that I felt out of control, that I just could not get a grip on eating and weight loss. This book opened my eyes to what was missing. As much as this is a physical battle, for me it is also spiritual. I needed God's help to take back my life, my health, my body. Nothing I ever did before worked for any long period of time. This past year has truly been a lifestyle change for me.

Another weight loss book written from a Christian perspective is "Bod 4 God" by Steve Reynolds. He is a pastor who lost over 100 pounds. I found it very helpful as well.

    I just started reading the book a Bod4God. It is good so far. Another Christian book I read was Chantel Hobbs Never Say Diet. It is REALLY good. It is her story and lots of good information in it. emoticon
