January 13

Slow and steady girls. That is our goal. I know we live in a society that is "instant" but if you haven't figured it out yet weight loss is not. 1 to 2 pounds a week should be your goal and that means if you lose 2 pounds one week it is not the end of the world if you don't lose any the next.

The slower and more steady it comes off the better chance you will have at keeping it off. I love Biggest Loser. It is probably my favorite TV show but it IS NOT realistic. A 15-20 pound weight loss in a week is insane and hard to maintain.

So the next time you feel like you are frustrated because this is taking longer than you wanted it to remember this way it can be a permanent weight loss. You can stop being a yo-yo.

New verse:

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
~Isaiah 40:29-31

Now get it onto an index card and then get it into your heart. Do not stop memorizing scripture until it penetrates down into the marrow of your bone. It is life giving and life transforming.

Journal tonight about the times you feel most discouraged. Especially when the weight doesn't feel like its coming off nearly as fast as it came on. Thank Him that He will give you strength. We will run and not grow weary!

Have a blessed night!
