PMS or a slump...God can help.

I think "it" is coming...because I've had the munchies all day.  I haven't over eaten too badly, but had junk that I'm trying to stay away from.  I don't want to sabotage my weight loss this week, but I've had a day where I feel like "who cares???".    

I don't like these days, but I know they are a part of life.  There was a part of our adult Sunday School class in church yesterday that talked about living by faith, not in what we see, and then acting on that faith to get the tangible results.  While I know this applies to my spiritual life and working on what God wants me to become I couldn't help but think how much this was also true in my view of my weight loss journey.  When days like today hit I have to "walk by faith and not by sight" (or emotions).  I may not feel like it's worth it when I have the munchies, but I have to stay committed and go on in faith knowing that in the end it will all pay off.  If I can remember more of the details, or the guys name, I'll post it later. 

Having said that I have to mention that this morning I did Leslie Sansone's two-mile faith walk and she mentions walking by faith and not by sight and the scripture "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Phil. 4:13) went across the screen at one point.  I don't know what her beliefs are, but being a born-again Christian myself I was encouraged that I truly can do all things through Christ and I know He cares about me being healthier and so He will help me when I think it's impossible.  

I'm off to bed now.  Onward and upward.  Thanks for "listening"!  :o)


  1. Part of the weight loss journey, and the Christian journey, is following through and doing things even though we may not want to.
    I heard it one time in regards to marriage - they said, "Make a decision to love" by doing something for your spouse that you really don't want to do right then.

    Weight loss is kind of like making a decision to love yourself isn't it? You are right on!

  3. I am so glad that I don't have "it" anymore. That's not saying that I don't get the munchies here and there because believe me I do. Like on the 4th I LOVE BBQ chips. I said to myself I am going to let myself have just a few. I ate more then just a few. I finally had to stop because I started feeling guilty about it.
    I love that scripture "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me"
    We can do this Leah, we can!
    Power on sister!! LOL
