The biggest successes for me in the past were staying in the word and keeping myself accountable. Contests sometimes if the payout was good. I have a hard time with groups (even though I am part of a really good nationwide one for the exact diet plan I am using) because everyone signs up but maybe one third participates and that usually last a couple of weeks. And there I am all alone with no one to encourage or to be encouraged by.
Your words were found and I ate them,
And Your words became a joy to me and the delight of my heart;
For I have been called by Your name,
O Lord God of hosts.
In order to find something you need to search for it. And when you find it, you need to do something with it. In this case God’s words were found and Jeremiah feasted on them. Jeremiah listened to God and it’s the same with us. We are so fortunate to have many ways to hear from God but the biggest blessing is the Bible. We need to open it up, wait expectantly and then let his word become our meal.
So if you are on a weight loss plan like myself….let God’s word be your meal and you will find joy not only in His word but in the changes taking place both spiritually and physically. And who isn’t delighted when their body starts reshaping and the world of fashion begins to open up to us in new and different ways?!!!
