Feeding-Your-Mind-and-Body

I’m on the seafood diet – whenever I see food, I eat it! How many times have you starved yourself, only to stuff yourself very soon after?

If losing weight is an issue for you, take comfort in the success of others. Jackie was a yo-yo dieter since childhood. It wasn’t until her daughter Cara became a vegetarian that she learned the secret of moderation and sensible eating. She learned, pigging out just isn’t as much fun, when your once reliable Ben and Jerry’s buddy is nibbling a protein bar.

Like many moms, Jackie always put her daughter’s interests before her own. Changing bad eating habits was no exception. She jumped into healthful eating with the same fervor her daughter had, just like the now forgotten roller-blading craze. Spending time trying out new tofu recipes turned out to be a blessing in more ways than one. Jackie lost weight— for good — and she found the joy in honoring the Creator with a
healthy body.

Weighty Response

The needle sticks at a number
too high for my liking.
I just can't do this without You.
Please, help me today to avoid temptation.
Help me to eat mindfully,
to approach activity with enthusiasm,
to remember what I'm doing is a blessing,
not a punishment.
You, who make all things possible,
make possible the potential
I seek for myself.
May I live up to Your vision.

"Are you happy with your weight?
What's worked for you and what hasn't?"
