I don’t think I can do this weight loss taking care of myself stuff. I want to but, it is so hard! I have so much weight to lose. I feel like I don’t know where to begin. I think, what’s the point? Who cares? Then I eat the fourth cookie. How do I get going and stay going?
One day at a time, one choice at a time. When I first quit drinking I really struggled! I told myself, “I can do this, until I go to bed tonight”. I often went to bed early.
Change is difficult even if it is good for you. Moment by moment call on Jesus for strength and say NO! To the bad things in life. Do what you need to do. One step at a time one thought at a time! Practice forgiving yourself continually and keep on keeping on! Do a little everyday and you will get there!
Small consistent changes will get you to your goals. Here is an example; if you want to lose weight, reduce your calorie input by 300 calories a day and increase you caloric output by 200 calories a day. If you do this consistently for one week you will have lost a pound. 5 weeks =5pounds. Nice and easy, you will develop manageable life style changes and you will feel better in all aspects of your life!
Hebrews 12:1 “Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.”
