Weight loss is the hardest thing to do and so you resolved, yet again, to shed those pounds!
You might be wondering why I’m sharing about weight loss when I normally write devotionals or post about Bible journaling.
What does weight loss have to do with your spiritual walk with Jesus?
A whole lot more than you think!
Years ago, when I was 15 we arrived in Los Angles, California. I had grown up in Asia with my family and had anxiously waited for the day when we would come to the United States.
I remember vividly the impression those first few days made on me. My senses were alive as my eyes took in the city and my lungs wheezed in the unfiltered polluted air.
What fun we had on the rides at Disneyland!
But most of all was the shock that so many people were extremely overweight!
It is normal.
Ads in magazines, TV, and the internet encourage overeating until we tell each other that it is fine to have too much to eat.
I ate too much last weekend!
Then when it is time to lose just 5 pounds (or maybe 25 pounds) it is the hardest thing ever to do.
I have never been terribly overweight but I’ve had enough pounds to lose to learn from experience that it is the hardest thing ever to lose!
You know that losing weight is the hardest, most daunting thing ever to do. It takes steadfastness like you never knew you had. Maybe you can’t even lose those pesky pounds and they are stuck and won’t budge from your hips.
I know this is the hardest thing to do because it involves major changes in mindset and habit. It ends up to be a deep-rooted spiritual journey and if you are like me, you need help to get started.
Fear not! You might have grasshopper faith but it can be done (Numbers 13:33). There is a way to get help and accomplish weight loss.
During a crisis it’s so important to take care of YOU! That’s not being selfish it’s just reality!
Are you filled with anxiety and need to reset to respond with CALM to all that you are hearing and seeing?
Why Weight Loss is Important
When I was 25 pounds heavier, I lost motivation and was far more exhausted. Yes, I still had kids in our home growing up so I’m sure that was part of my exhaustion.
But extra weight is tiring. Think of it this way . . . If you were to carry two 5-pound weights with you everywhere you went all day, you would suddenly think they were heavy. And they are!
You would feel sluggish and unmotivated. Trust me.
If you have a ministry, you might find it difficult to be productive. You might be more sedentary.
My passion is to do all for the glory of God and I work very hard to keep from gaining weight so that I can be productive in getting my message to those who need it.
I am able to do this better when I am healthy and at a good weight.
Losing weight and keeping it off has been the hardest thing I have done. Although I lost 10 pounds since last winter, I am still struggling to get habits in place so I don’t gain it all back!
What I am finding is this . . .
Workouts are good to do but more than that, clean eating works wonders. Thing is that it is a constant struggle to eat right because try as I may, I haven’t got the willpower or self-control totally in place yet.
Weight loss and maintaining its loss is the hardest thing to do!
BECAUSE . . .
It has little or nothing to do with all the things I can implement. That’s why you might not be finding solutions even though you have tried a ton of weight loss programs.
Why Losing Weight is the Hardest Thing
I’ll give you an example.
For years I have binged on chocolate chips. Sorry, but it is the sad truth.
The struggle is real even though I take the most amazing supplements.
This is not really an addiction because I don’t eat them every day.
But when I am faced with the temptation to eat them, I often cave and eat way more than I should.
