I Cortinthians 6:19-20 "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's."

Another Week...Another Loss

Last week was a very emotional week for me yet with the help of the Lord I managed to keep my drowning my emotions in food to a minimum. Sometimes I will find myself stuffing my face to deal with situations and other times I will just not eat at all. Last week I wanted to stuff my face...and I told the Lord that many times. He enabled me to resist that temptation!!

I did drink my water very well last week. I can tell you one thing though....I'm so ready to reach my next goal of 30 pounds lost yet I'm struggling to get there. I know I could get there if I would just do my exercise. I do hope to get that going once this month's female issue is past. Many things tend to happen to cause me to not want to get that started...but I am determined!!

I pray you all are having positive results on your journey to a thinner and healthier you. If you are struggling with it you must ask yourself these things....

Am I asking the Lord to help me?
Am I stopping when my body tells me I'm satisfied while eating?
Am I getting the proper amount of exercise? (I know..this is my struggle too!!)
Am I drinking my (at least) 68 ounces of water?

If you're not doing any of these things then you can rest assured you probably won't see the results you desire to see. We can do this ladies...but only with the help of the Lord and also some self-control.

Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."
