That's so true. The Holy Spirit dwells within this temple. I just want my temple to be more of Him and less of me :)
Thank you for the encouraging words :)

You've got this! It's so encouraging to see everyone respond in such ways. One thing that I've realized over the past couple years (I should have figured this out long ago, but it finally hit me). We are all human and we make mistakes. But when we make mistakes, we take them to God and He will help us. We weren't made to be perfect. Only Christ is. So when we make mistakes we have to learn to forgive ourselves or we will never get to that desired goal we wish. God bless you! :)

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

One meal, one exercise at a time. Always remember that new beginnings are unlimited and may start at any time of day. Aim to lose just one pound no matter how long it takes. When you have done that, feel proud then work toward the next one pound. That makes it easier to visualize. Another trick that has helped some of us is to picture something (I use 16-pound bowling balls) to be a marker for your weight loss. Maybe 10-pound boxes of kitty litter or five-pound sacks of potatoes, etc. For me, when I lose four pounds I picture one-fourth of a bowling ball being sliced off. Wishing you much success. -- Lou

Work and focus with The Holy Spirit's help and you CAN do all things to His glory!

I'm not very disciplined, either! I've fought my weight for more than 25 years now, and have only gotten heavier. I've gained more than 150 pounds since I got married! I don't know why it's so hard for me, it always has been, maybe I don't really believe I can do it!



Some mornings, it's just not worth chewing through the leather straps.

I first joined Sparkpeople in 2012..........I can't really remember why I did not continue. I did lose weight at that time - went from 215 lbs. to 190 lbs. Then I got sick and did not eat correctly and the weight slowly came back.
I get discouraged easily, but am determined to KEEP TRYING until Jesus comes back or I go HOME one! Would love to hear from others who are going through same thing.
I'm not very disciplined. But one thing I do know........"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me......!"
