This is from what I wrote on Dec. 11th2011
If you don’t change ……… then nothing changes. I have written about this before, so I am writing again about it. I am 50 lbs. over weight. I have chosen not to do anything about it! My eating habits are horrible and I have no discipline in these areas of my life. I am not complaining, because that will not accomplish anything, it is really about the first line in this paragraph. I just need to get off my butt! I guess it is just not bad enough yet. If I don’t change………. Then nothing changes. That goes for every area of my life. Scripture says your body is a temple, 1 Corinthians 6:19 Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own, 20 You were bought with a price [purchased with preciousness and paid for, made His own]. So then, honor God andbring glory to Him in your body.  This is my Goliath! Sometimes I feel this is how my life is supposed to be. Well that is a lie strait from the enemy and I refuse to believe that. If I don’t do something then in a couple of months I will weigh more..
I am here to tell you that I did not change. I continued to stuff my face, gorge whatever you want to call it. I continued to put on the weight 11 more pounds. ON February 12th 2012 I stepped on the scales and weighed 268lbs. That is the most I have every weighed in my entire life! Something inside of me just snapped. I am here to tell you that today I stepped on the scales and I weigh 217.8 lbs. Thank you Jesus!
What I have learned is I started to get this hopeless attitude about my weight and I have found that I can have this attitude about other areas of my life where I struggle. So once again it is all about choice. I became overweight because I like to eat and I would eat even when I was not hungry or continue to eat when I was full. That was my choice and the devil didn’t make me do it.
I changed …. Then I changed1 How did I do it? I stopped eating fast food completely and I stopped drinking Dr Pepper. I take my lunch everyday. Even when I am home I lay out what I am going to eat and stick to it. I stopped eating bread and I drink over 100 ounces of water everyday. so be encouraged that you to can lose the weight if you need to. It is not a special diet.
It Is Choice!!!
Be blessed today!
