Weight Loss Week 6

New Year Resolution Update

This week, I will continue to ask God to help me to stick with everything I need to do. I desire to honor Him with the body He gave me, and pray when I’m tempted! I will continue to invite Him to be at the center of my dining experience.

I will eat when my body is hungry, eat the right amount, eat in a calm environment, eat when I’m sitting, eat when my body and mind are relaxed, eat and drink the things my body enjoys, eat slowly, savoring each bite, and stop before my body is full.

I also need to thank God for His generous provisions, and pray that the food would bring physical satisfaction and health to my body.


I did well this week; I did everything I was supposed to do, and eat the right amount! Weight Watchers really helps me keep on track with the amount my body needs.


This week, I didn’t do so well, I didn’t work out at all. I really wanted to, but really wanting to, doesn’t get the job done. Maybe next week, since we will have nicer weather.


Did you know that the scale has trouble shooting section?

1. Place feet in the same position every time you weigh yourself

2. Weigh yourself without clothing whenever possible.

3. Move the scale to a location where it won’t be bumped.

4. For the most consistent reading, weigh yourself at the same time of the day.

Yay, I lost 2 pounds this week. I love my new scale.

Have you ever looked at the Body Mass Index? Who came up with this? I looked up 64 inches and I am now overweight instead off obese,…. by one pound. Do I say yay or nay?


I weigh 173.

Until next week…..

Weight Loss Tip for the Week

Try adding different types of food instead of subtracting.

Fitness Tip for the Week

Go out and just do it!

Dining Out Dos and Don’ts

Don’t be afraid to tell the waiter exactly what you want and don’t want. Dressing on the side, one meal on two plates, and do not bring bread to the table ect, ect, ect…..


Once I lose weight, my whole life will be different.


People who successfully lose weight often do change many aspects of their lives. Losing weight will probably change your look and improve your health and self confidence. But keep in mind, what really matters is your relationship with the LORD and to continue to be spiritual fed.

Revelation 21:7

He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

Being thin is a wonderful goal. Regaining health and vigor is also great. Looking and feeling good are important, but both pale in comparison with how good it is to please the Lord by being the best people we can be. When we diet, we not only gain physically, but also spiritually. Resisting temptation tones our spiritual being as well as dieting tones our physical being. When we reach our goal in our diet, we reach a second goal, as well: We do what is pleasing to God. When we are faithful to do the will of the Lord, we can rest assured that we have an eternal home with Him.

Today's thought: Dieting makes me a spiritual overcomer as well as a physical overcomer!
