What is your reason behind losing weight?
by: Sarah

Dear Miranda,

Thank you for sharing with us.

But what I'm really curious to find out is your reason behind wanting to lose weight. You mentioned that you need to lose 20 pounds in 4 months. 20 pounds is no small amount. You need to be clear of the reason why you are losing weight.

Is it because you wish to look good for someone else? Do you know that the Father loves you the way you are and the way you look? He made you and is proud of you and wants you to feel His love for you. His love is unconditional. It doesn't depend on your weight. And often we as human only display conditional love, and that may have made you feel less than you are, but you are so much more than you probably believe you are. Do not believe the lies that people might tell you.

Are you comparing yourself to someone else and feeling bad about yourself? Stop comparing, because God says that you are a unique creation in His eyes.

We often look for our identify and meaning in life. We say "We will be happy if only..." but really, all we need is God. God is able to satisfy our every need. Every need. So look to God first. Seek first His Kingdom and He will take care of everything for you.

There is nothing wrong with wanting to lose weight, if you know the proper reasons for doing so. Proper reasons like because you understand that your current weight is in the unhealthy range and you want to take care of the temple of the Holy Spirit (your body) and because you want to give God all the glory.

Start an exercise regime, and get some good friends who you can trust and rely on to help you follow it and go through it with you. Cut down on fried foods and soft drinks and other unhealthy foods, drink more water and be happy!

You asked how to find courage for doing this? God is your answer. God will give you supernatural strength to accomplish the impossible or the difficult, if you ask Him. With God, all things are possible. You can do all things through Him who strengthens you. These are all promises of God to you.

Praying for you and believing God will help you through this.

In Christ,

Everyone always says that muscle weighs more then fat. Who cares how much, they just weigh different. The most important part is that they are shaped different. You can lose weight the wrong way and become week. I suggest changing your fat into muscle. I lost weight using the new exersize video T3 by Billy Banks. This worked wonders for me and I watched my fat start disipearing in less then a week. Even my friends noticed. I'm not saying that this will work for you, I tried several workouts before I found this one. The key to finding one that works for you is 3 parts: Find one that pushes you, but you can make it through, one that is in your time frame, and most importantly one that when your done you feel like you have been working out and feel great about yourself for doing it. Good luck!
