I have just discovered this group today, Memorial Day, and I accept it to be God's will for me to meet this group today. Thank you for what you said about my attitude, will, and desire to actually change. I'll have to look at me more closely..........
Well said Shelly I would just like to add what worked for me was I had to have a made up mind. I had to get rid of the stinkin thinkin (as Joyce Meyer would say). I learned that through determination, dedication, discipline and Jesus there is no way you can fail. Im living proof
It's only the power of habit, & the strength of our will, & the attachment to the things that we love that determines whether or not we will lose weight. Let me say that again. It's only the power of habit, & the strength of our will, & the attachment to the things we love that determines whether or not we will lose weight. I read that in a book awhile ago. It makes so much sense, but while we are trying to lose weight we don't think about it like that. We focus on calories, water, exercise, fat, & carbs.
Now, I must say that God it at the top of my list as far as accomplishing anything, which I have not talked about yet. What I have stated earlier IS true, but God is above all of that.
So, as you count those calories, carbs, watch out for fat in your foods, never forget,your habit, will, and strength all play a part in this too. But more than anything else, God will get you there.
