Weight Loss

If you have been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that I’m in the process of loosing weight.  I started off the year at a high of 248.  I want to end up at 215 by June 1.  Right now, I’m sitting at 234…that means I am 14 lbs down and 19 lbs to go.  If you do the math, that works out to almost 2 lbs per week.  I’ve been doing everything…watching what I eat (and not doing a great job of it…weekends are rough), working out on the Nordic Trac, and even taking some hoodia.  Well, this morning while doing my Bible study, I realized I hadn’t done what I really needed to do:  turn it over to God.

So, with that revealed to me, I decided to pray about it.  You’ll find more detail later why I think God cares about my weight (but we are supposed to take care of our bodies), but I turned it over to Him.  I’m still watching what I eat (I’m going to work harder on the weekends) and working out; however, this is up to God.  He created my body…He can make it loose weight.

So, if you are looking for something to pray about, why not join me in praying about my weight.  Pray that God would allow me to eat healthy.  Pray that I would continue to work out.  But, in the end, when I get to my goal, it is God that got me there.
