The BATTLE of the bulge is the BATTLE of the spirit

Romans 12
Place Your Life Before God
 1-2 So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. 
Instead, fix your attention on God. 
You'll be changed from the inside out. 
Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.

Why does do people BATTLE  with their weight and lose?  

                     It's because    being OVERweight is a product of  a UN-BALANCED life.

Un-balanced.. emotionally, spiritually, physically

When we reach of Ice Cream at 10 pm..... we are at war with in ourselves.  
We are attempting to satisfy something  in our soul that is empty or  hurting
A lot like when we were an infant ...... looking for the comfort of our Mothers milk as we were held in her loving arm FEELING safe, secure and loved.
We assoicate Food with meeting a need in our life
through it's taste, texture.... bla bla bla
  (lot's of psycho babble material here)  

Are Diet's Bad?   There are some very good diets out there
Let's face it, people need a jump start to "discipline" themselves to eat certain foods, eliminate certain foods, adjust the times they eat, the amount they eat.
Do you see where I'm going here!

Diets are primarily about "modifying behaviors" 
without saying so.... Changing the way you think, see and behave around foods.

  • That is why MOST diet's work!   
  • That is why MOST people re-GAIN the weight they lost when they are off the diet.  

It's because the DIET needs to be a DIET that STARTS with 
A Diet for your MIND and SOUL   

Your battle is inside your Mind and Heart....  not inside the refrigerator! 

Yes, you can go on a "diet" to lose weight... 
BUT for heaven-sakes... 
think about  
loosing anger, un-forgiveness, fear.... 
JUST as Important as losing FAT

Consider re-thinking "I need to lose weight" by S A Y I N G

"I need to get healthy"
"I need to build up muscles"
"I need to detox my heart and mind"
"I need to nourish my body, mind and soul"
"I need to wake up and make this the Best Day Ever"

I truly believe that when people balance their lives 
(Physically, Mentally and Spiritual) .... They will be in Tip Top Shape!

So plan your attack on "weight loss"  by knowing what the War is really about
Then and only then can you win EACH BATTLE.

Gotta go put  my armor on for the DAY
