After almost 8 years of yo-yo dieting, I have come to the conclusion that my reasons for losing weight have been superficial and considerably vain. Most of my reasons for losing weight were for vacations, convocations, and weddings. While I mainly wanted to look good for myself, I realize a piece of me didn't want others to see how I was totally out of control. So with a lil Atkins here and workouts there I was 20-50 pounds lighter for a season and a day. Oh but the day after that season, I was on the path to being worse than I started.

It wasn't until recently that I had a revelation from the Lord regarding His will for my life. This revelation presented a new perspective about why it was time to lose the weight. It simply came down to this: God is concerned about my health...why am I not? 3 John 1:2 says He wants me to prosper, be in good health, even as my soul prospers. I am always so concerned about my soul and prosperity that I forget that God is also concerned about my health.

So, here's the bottom line I want Him to be pleased with my life...mind, body, and soul. So, I'm trying again...but now it's for His Glory.

    Wow, your opening statement was enlightening. I always consider my actions thinking if I'm judged by Him , I don't want to be ashamed, but never considered it as I put something into my mouth. I'm going to be mindful of your words today and for the next few weeks and hopefully make my God proud of His daughter in all aspects of her life. Thanks sweetie and good luck. I read you need support but it sounds like you have the supreme support of our Father.
