Against All Odds

We began revival services at our church yesterday morning and already God has spoken directly to my life. I'm always amazed how sometimes I'm able to relate a sermon to my battle with weight loss. Yesterday morning he preached about facing the odds. He mentioned that despite all the odds that may seem stacked against us we can make it as Christians in a wicked world.

Well, I was thinking this morning that it's the same with my weight loss. Despite the odds stacked against me - weight gain history in the women in my family, past failures at weight loss attempts, etc. - I can win in this battle. It may not seem easy at times, but it is possible. I can and will win in the end.


  1. God is greater than all. Even our weight struggles. Stay strong, and you will succeed. Thanks for the reference in the previous post, and your very insightful comment.

  2. I have to say that your comments are a very different "Leah" than last year and I'm so impressed by how far you've come. You know what? I KNOW you are going to make it this time - something deep down tells me you're ready and that it's just going to happen. I'm so proud you're my friend! (ok, the tears are being wiped away - literally)

  3. Yes, you can totally do this! It's a struggle, but God will help you through it.
