Diet and Faith…

Diet and Faith go hand in hand. Weight loss is about more than the number on the scale.  Its about gaining knowledge…applying knowledge…not giving up…its about losing old baggage and gaining emotional and physical strength.  As your strength grows, so does your power…will power and determination…it reminds me of a Bible verse 2 Peter 1:5-8…faith grows with knowledge and application…our body changes with knowledge and application…

Another season… another year….

I seem to think in “Seasons”…It is now Fall.  As I reflect on the Spring and Summer of this year, I feel…well, a bit disappointed that I did not reach my weight loss goals.  It is so defeating…In fact, I have gained 10 lbs…despite tremendous effort.  I am rarely satisfied…I don’t have the time, energy or financial resources to invest in more than I am doing.  I have googled every plan from Weight Watchers to Atkins to Paleo.  I have “pinned” all low carb recipes…I am trying…I guess I will have to continue to try…

All is not lost, I have gained a LOT of insight into my eating patterns, calories, that sugar free is NOT sugar free.  I definitely have more endurance and I feel stronger. I would just be happy to see the scale go downward…it is still a GOAL…Goals are good, right?
