Weight Loss Encouragement

Was weight loss or a healthy lifestyle your New Years resolution? Well, it’s July. How is your journey going now that half the year is over?

This week, I was thinking about how grateful I am for Trim Healthy Mama. If you haven’t read previous posts about my journey, you can find them here and here.  I’ve had a lot of encouragement along the way from family, friends, other Trim Healthy Mamas, but mostly from The Lord.  I can’t believe how much closer I have gotten to God through this process.

If you are struggling in your journey right now, I would encourage you to spend lots of time in prayer and The Word as you go through this process. I couldn’t have gotten this far without it.

When I feel tempted or discouraged, I try to remember to grab my Bible and head to my prayer bench for some alone time with The Lord. Remember–don’t give up! That’s what the enemy wants you to do. He takes something essential like food and uses it as a weapon against us.

I’ve collected quite a few scriptures along the way that I would share with you today. Nothing makes the enemy flee faster than God’s Word spoken and saying the name of Jesus. I am praying for your journey, and I hope these scriptures inspire you to persevere.

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33

No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” Matthew 4:4

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. Proverbs 16:3

Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. Deuteronomy 30:11

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8

So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it. 2 Corinthians 5:9

However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace. Acts 20:24

You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. Ephesians 4:22-24
