For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
There are times when we think we need special help losing weight. Without it we believe that we struggle twice as hard as we really need to lose the weight. And so often many of us will turn to a fast often dangerous fix of diet pills or what is called the lasted "Hollywood Fad Diet". This not the way to go. You may lose weight in the beginning, but it often turns out to be a temporary loss. And we usually gain the weight back and then some. And if you are like a friend of mine which I will call Kelly. You may get off lucky with just a few side effects. Kelly went on one of these so called diets and lost a ton of weight. But what she didn't realize until it was too late was that she was destroying her health permanently. Kelly tried the latest diet cleanse in a bottle. She not only wound up with IBS. She now has to take high blood pressure medication for the rest of her life. There are no quick fixes to our weight issues. We have to learn to look at food differently than we did before. It is a source of fuel or our bodies and not something to just eat for pleasure. We must learn portion and appetite control. If we are to lose weight permanently and to keep it off for good. God offers to help us through our diets. Allow God to work within you as you diet, and you'll be surprised how much easier it is.
Today's thought: When the fat won't go away, take a moment then to pray!
