I have been blogging about the need to lose weight for health reasons. A friend and I decided to read the book and do the workbook "Lose It For Life "
I'm finding I only read to page 7 and there is so much truth behind my eating habits. I didn't even get to the workbook. Each chapter will take time, at this rate ,to digest everything.
The first thing I learned to acknowledge is food can be an addiction just like anything else and we need to accept that. You often hear of over abusing drug and alcohol but we don' t hear about over abusing food. That too can be just as deadly to our health. (That was part of Dad's health problems.)
Then we say I'll just cut out the snacks or I'll just do this or that. We are taking control. When will we finally get it. God has control. So often when we think we have control of an area we find another area out of control. Until we accept we don't have control, God does we will have struggles.
I like what Paul says in 2 Corinthians 12:10 When I am weak, then I am strong. When we accept we can not do this that is when God take control and we accomplish something.
I think this journey is going to painful but well worth the growth I will have.
