I enjoyed a day off work today due to a snow day.. I used this time to meditate on God's word. This gives me strength. I find that when I do this I have strength to not give in to the cravings. I thank God for the strength he gives to have victory over temptation.

I'm beginning to look at unhealthy foods as a temptation...I usually say "I was made for more than this" and usually walk away....but...this week...the temptation won out...I could actually see the evil one laughing at me...I sure can use some help....

Fall seven times...get up eight.

Be still and know I am God

"I vow to let go of all worries and anxiety in order to be light and free... Freedom is not given to us by anyone; we have to cultivate it ourselves. It's a daily practice

Thanks for these words of encouragement. It could have been one of those bad days for me, based on what the scale said. But I know that my heart has changed, and that makes a difference to me. I am not quitting this time. I was so tempted to quit this morning. I heard the voice tell me it was just the same as always, one success and then failure. Not worth going on because things are never going to change the way I want. But I know this is a lie. I am going to keep on. I did not eat the cinnamon rolls this morning, but had a nice healthy breakfast. I took my brisk walk and am going to do my strength video. thanks again.

"It would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased."
~ C. S. Lewis

We were made for more and yet we keep settling for less!

From Day 1 of the Made to Crave devotional:

"I can delight in hope that this is my year to change.
I can discover reasons to appreciate my body and find softer ways for my thoughts to land.
I can recognize the beauty of discipline and crave the intimacy with God it unleashes.
I can rest assured thought the journey will be hard, I will be held."

Keep moving forward!

I'm a new day rising, I'm a brand new sky to hang the stars upon tonight!

"We need a power beyond our frail attempts and fragile resolve. A power greater than our taste buds, hormones, temptations, and our inborn female demand for chocolate. Yes, the truth of who we are and the power to live out that truth - that's what we need."

Lysa TerKeurst

I KNOW that I can NOT do this by myself - even with people on my side. The ONLY way this can be done is with God carrying me. I just need to let him.

"The right thing is to make healthier choices for ourselves. The right thing is to find the satisfaction to our deepest needs with God not food. Itís the choice to walk willingly on the path of discipline in the area of our food choices. Itís coming to the realization that changes need to be made and making those changes in the quietness of our pantry when no one else is looking."

Encouragement for you today - In any weight loss journey, there will be good days and bad days. But, most importantly, Iíve realized this isnít as much about losing the weight as it is gaining truthóthe truth of who I am in Christ and how I am made for more than this constant, self-defeating struggle.
~~ Lysa TerKeurst (from her facebook page)
