And He Answered...

Monday, February 24, 2014

So, I have spent the past couple of months trying to figure out why I am gaining so much weight. I've cried and I've prayed. I've prayed and I've cried, and I have finally received an answer that arguably came from the very mouth of God.

Why have I gained all of this weight even though I am working out at least 2 hours a day now?

It's because I'm eating like the 300 lb Ebie!!!

Wow! What a revelation. It doesn't matter how much time I put in at the gym, I am not helping myself if I leave the gym and go to Mcdonald's and order a Bacon Mcdouble meal larged. Or how about the 2 bacon, egg, and cheese biscuits I've been eating every morning before work???

I have self-sabatoged myself and it has taken me this long to see it!

Well, now that I've found the reason, it's time to jump back on this horse and eat like the 150 lb Ebie:)

    Yes, the Lord will give us answers just as plain as day. I am responding because I know exactly what you're talking about and I have the same situation. I have the exercise well under control, but not my eating.
The eating has to fall in line to lose weight. I do believe that the Lord has the answers and will help us if we allow Him to do it!
God bless!

    Might I suggest something simpler than 'summoning strength'.

1. Plan
- What you're going to eat for the day. In rough terms.
- What you will eat for the week when you go shopping.
- What you're going to eat at each meal.
- Take the portion you are going to eat, before you eat it.
2. Measure
- I recommend a digital scale; makes self-deception all the more difficult.
3. Track
- Write it down before you eat it. Enter it as soon as you're able.

You're a star. You've done it. We know you'll get back on track.

    You asked and He answered. Now it is up to you to show the strength He has given you. Use it as you know how---to help yourself and glorify Him. Good Luck on your journey.

    PLUS... when you eat better, your body will make better use of the fuel and you will NOT REQUIRE 2 hour workouts!!!

Good job!

    He ALWAYS answers. Emotional eating is so hard to break, but you've come too far to go back. Just remember how unhappy you were when you were the "Old" you. Try looking on Youtube for "self-love" Affirmations - guided meditations and they even have some for Weight Loss, they really have helped jump start my road to recovery. Good luck and keep on pushing on!! emoticon

    What a great revelation! You must be so energized to be headed back on your intended path. Every time I weigh in (once per week) I always update my profile so that Spark automatically updates the number of calories I should be ingesting in order to reach my goal weight by my goal date. It's a great feature of the program. Sending you a big high five and looking forward to sharing your successes with you. :)

All the best!
