10 Ways to Stay Motivated to Lose Weight

1. Wear Clothes That Fit that You Feel Good In

We’re supposed to lose weight, but I want you to find clothes that fit? That you feel good in?


Here’s why: many of us are sure we won’t feel good in our bodies until we lose the weight. But once we’ve gained weight nothing really fits anymore. We don’t want to go out and buy clothes because that would be like giving in–like admitting that we’re not going to lose. And so we put on the yoga pants and the sweat pants and we feel horrible about ourselves but we feel like we deserve it.

No. You deserve to feel wonderful! God gave you your body and He judges the inside, not the outside. He loves you; you’re allowed to love yourself, too! And I’m convinced that women who love their bodies and that feel wonderful will have an easier time losing weight and exercising than those who try to punish themselves. FULL POST

My Life Is A Mist, So I Live For Eternity

We can spend our time thinking and worrying about the things in this life that are passing away just as quickly as we are, or we can spend our time seeing this life in the view of the next; and make decisions based on eternity rather than on the here and now.

Like many of you (I'm sure) I have some stressful situations that I have to deal with from time to time, and not all are related to my health. Sometimes it's family issues, sometimes it's difficult issues with friends within our church and outside our church, and sometimes it's issues with my own selfish desires...okay, mostly it's issues with my own selfish desires.

But regardless of the stressor, I must remain steadfast in the Word of God and in worship and prayer, lest I become consumed with my desire to find immediate relief for my stress, and forget there are other hurting souls near me. Today was one of those days. FULL POST

The Biological Clock

The word biological would suggest to me that there is a logic in nature that, like a clock, has a rhythm and a pace that is regular and timely. If that is so then how is life meant to be lived? Are we to live like a clock, watching every minute or second that ticks? Are we to regard ourselves as machines, that like a clock, keep ticking over irrespective of how we live? No but like a clock that has a maker who regulates it and sets the time, so we have a Maker who has made our biological clock to correspond with the sun and planetary clock but more importantly to mind and spirit.

We are not machines. Nor is the biological clock a machine. The biological clock is not regulated or set like a timepiece but has a psychosomatic nature. It cannot be separated from the mind for it is a mind related substance. The proof of that is something you can test for yourself at any time and be fully convinced that the body is not a machine.

If you know what a thing is then you also know what a thing isn’t. This is just as true of the biological clock as it is of a timepiece. Both have things in common but they are very different from each other. A timepiece has no emotions, no thoughts and no will to determine its own time or being. Not so the biological clock. Check this out for yourself. When you feel embarrassed do you not blush? What is blushing but the dilation of tiny blood capillaries in your skin that respond to the feeling of embarrassment. When you are afraid does not your heart beat faster? Check it out and you will see that it does. Have you ever had a lump in your throat or a headache? Every cell of your body is responsive to your mind automatically through what is called the autonomic nervous system. Through the autonomic nervous system your thoughts and emotions can actually produce biological and psychological disorders. FULL POST
