You aren’t new to the weight loss struggle.
You’ve tried countless diets and exercise routines. You’ve even been successful at shedding some pounds.
… but those long-lost pounds seem to keep finding their way back to you and you are just plain tired of this seemingly endless battle.
Friend, you can lose weight and keep it off by learning the top 20 things that no one tells you about how to truly be successful on your journey.
This is part 16 of a 20-part blog series that will give you a strong foundation of strategy you need to lose weight, keep it off, and start living the life you were born to live!
Some of what I share will be opposite of what all the diet gurus tell you, so read on with an open and prayerful mind and let God work on you from the inside out of your health and fitness journey!
“Hunger is all in your head.”
Have you heard this statement before?
If you’ve had this comment thrown your way more than a time or two along your weight loss journey, you certainly aren’t alone.
I'm sure you’ve also heard “Just do something to distract yourself and you’ll forget all about being hungry. Go read a book … take a bath … take a walk … something to get your mind off food.”
Friend, while these actions aren’t necessarily bad and are actually pretty great for taking care of yourself, I want you to know something very, very important.
Distraction is not helpful in weight loss.
As you know, this series is all about weight loss tools that go against the most common diet gurus out there and this statement definitely goes against the advice many tout on a daily basis. However, it’s important for you to know that allowing distraction to keep you away from food for a moment is only a temporary fix and does not create the long-term solution you need.
You have exactly what it takes to lose weight and reclaim your God-given identity. Any voice telling you that you don’t is very simply a lie from the enemy. God has placed everything in your vessel that you need to be successful.
The journey can be a struggle at times, and that’s why I’ve created the perfect resource that will help you get started today. It’s a free, 7-Day Devotional called Losing Weight with God. Just click this link and you can download your copy right now.
Stop allowing the distraction of distractions to keep you from who God has called you to be. You can do this!
