I am disappointed in myself

Monday, September 28, 2009

I started a Bible study that was supposed to help me with weightloss but instead I feel more helpless than ever. Overeating is a sin and I confess that I am an overeater. I need to eat much less now I am obsessed. I know that I am still overeating because I am stuck. I know I need to exercise more, harder and I am doing the best I can. I have not reached the amount of exercise I was doing when I started losing weight. I am trying my best-still I'm not doing enough. Today I was so stessed that I haven't eatten a meal. I have had v-8 fusion a granola bar and water. I don't feel hungry and it's 9:20 I am ready for bed. Yes I walked today, yes I cycled today and I made 7000+ steps. I went to the doctor. My husband went with me. He was out all day taking his aunt and uncle around. Then he took me to the doctor and to the grocery to get a few things to make cookies for the pot luck at work. The plan is Mexican and I made Mexican Wedding cookies. I didn't go to the wellness center because I wanted my husband to get a little rest, but he did some laundry. I am getting fitter I guess but my weight is not going down. Tomorrow should be a better day. emoticon

    In our weakness HIS STRENGTH is made perfect. We are all helpless to sin and it is only with God that we can make it through.

    Do your very best to honor God's temple in you. Pray when you feel the urge to indulge. Feed your spirit with the Word.

    God will see you through and He honors our sacrifices. emoticon

    Romans 8:1 - There is therefore now NO CONDEMNATION for those who are in Christ Jesus

    I understand how easy it is to become obsessed with a topic that you feel you can't conquer, but I'm also currently doing a Bible study about controlling thoughts and bringing them into alignment with God's Word - not your opinion of yourself. According to the Bible, Jesus does not condemn those who bring their sins & problems to Him, it's actually quite the opposite. In Philippians 4:6 we are told to bring our requests to God and not to be anxious (DON'T WORRY!!).

    Pray & let God know what He already knows - that you want to honor Him and not sin by abusing your body through either overeating or undereating. Then, do your best for today. At the end of the day if you didn't reach your goal, let it go - you can't change it. Just go to bed with another prayer to your Father, and wake up again tomorrow and ask for guidance once again.

    I'll be praying for you!!

    In order to lose weight, you do need to eat. Your body will begin to fight back and will stop losing weight if you are not eating. God created food for the nourishment of our bodies. It is the substance that provides us energy. I am also starting my weight loss regime, and I am working towards (although not there yet) eating God's food. Fresh, clean food that comes from the ground or from an animal. These are the gifts God gave to us and this is what I am working towards eating in my diet. NOT the chemicals that man has made. Therefore if you are overeating garbage, then that is gluttony and sinful. If you are eating God's food, you are honouring what God has given us.
