It’s mid-January and if you’re anything like me those changes we decided to make that seemed so exciting January 1, don’t feel so thrilling today.
Have you been having any of these thoughts…
Why is this healthy eating thing such a challenge?
Why does this have to be my issue?
Why does the scale insist on revealing my secrets?
Should a Christian woman even worry about getting healthy?
I’ve already blown my healthy eating commitments this month, so I’ll just start next month. Or next year. Or never.
If any of these resonate with you, I can totally relate. I was stuck in such a cycle of defeat over this issue for years. And honestly, if I’m not careful, I can slip right back into a cycle of defeat so easily.
I’ve never craved a carrot stick in my whole life and don’t think I ever will.
That’s why I have to have Biblically-based healthy eating go-to scripts to help me. Maybe you’ll find these helpful as well. They are from my book, Made to Crave – satisfying life’s deepest desires with God not food.
It’s my gut honest look at the reality that God loves me just as I am no matter what the scale says. But He loves me too much to leave me in a state of defeat.
God made me to consume food, but food was never supposed to consume me.
I pray these scripts are as encouraging and helpful to you as they have been for me.
