Are you struggling with weight loss?

Well the Question for me has been:

Just thinking about what
I need and what I want

When I look at a menu at the Restaurant,
                   Do I look for what my Body NEEDS or what my Body WANTS?

                   Do I look for what "sounds good to eat"  or what is "good to eat"?

When I'm shopping at a store
                    Do I look for what I NEED or what I WANT?

When I open my mouth to talk, DO
                    DO I think of what the person NEEDS to hear or what I WANT to say?

When I wake in the morning
                    DO I think of what I WANT to do or what I NEED to do?

Needs vs Wants....

My Journey is about renewing my 
Mind, Body and Spirit 
so that 
 My WANTS  agree with what I NEED

When what I want doesn't agree with what I need
then what I need  is to 
re-think why I want what I want
and  what I need to do is
re-think what is it I need

Help me MR. BILL!  (SNL)

Romans 12
1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, 
to offer your bodies 
as a living sacrifice, 
holy and pleasing to God—
this is your true and proper worship. 
2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, 
but be transformed by the renewing of your mind
Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is
his good, pleasing and perfect will.

God's will is for you to be HEALTHY and WELL

It's really not that complicated:   Make intelligent choices!

You have got to know that an apple is a healthy choice over apple pie

You have got to know that a Green Salad is a healthy choice over French Fries

You have got to know by know Snacking on cakes, cookies and candy when your
     BMI say's your overweight/Obese is Foolish!

You have got to know you need to eat respectable portions!

You have got to know your body Requires 3 balanced meals a day - And a Snack shouldn't be the size of a MEAL


Look at the Menu and SAY....  Hummmm I think....
"I will need One protein, One Vegetable, One Fruit
One Starch.    And.... 
Right, No fried foods please....and No items that have more calories than nutrition
and no items that are laden with Fats...."

"So I will have the ___________" 
(fill in the blank, pudding head!)

           Please.... SAY
                     What item on this menu will meet my BODY's NEED?

Thank God there isn't a Gas Station that has 10 choices of Gas for your Car

.... if there were  what would you WANT?

Would you buy gas that was $1 a gallon even 
if it Harmed your engine?

.....would you want  
Gas that Smelled nice and emitted a delightful fragrance and that was pumped by a gas station attendant (ahh those were the days)  
EVEN.....if it Harmed your engine?

How about this: Can you NOT stop for Gas because you Don't WANT to STOP ?

        No dumb dumb.... 
  •         You HAVE to STOP because your CAR NEEDS GAS!
  •         The RIGHT choice NO matter how expensive it is
  •         You can't run a car without the right type of GAS 

Well,  Pudding head
Ya can't run your body without Stopping and Eating the Proper FOODS
 OR ...... You'll HARM YOUR BODY!

What I'm say.... is this is how  STUPID we are with our MENU choices.... 
            Eating Fast Food because it's cheap and convenient
            Eating what looks good
            Eating just to Eat, like it's  our entertainment
            Not eating properly.... chronic snacking!

Change the way you see FOOD and EATING..... it's Purpose!


So,  RENEW your mind 
by developing healthy Habits 
Changing your Lifestyle so that you will 

WANT what you NEED.

There, I said it!

Salute to Your Health and Wellness
