This week's topic is: Scripture What scripture motivates you on this weight loss journey? What is your inspiration that keeps you going when you want to quit? I hope you'll dig a little deeper and share with us. You never know what motivates you that could help someone else. So I can't wait to read your inspiration!
To combat the negative thoughts that enter my head, to change the attitude that says "I will never meet my goal," and so much more, Psalm 139:13-18 is my go to scripture. Reminding myself that God created me, from the beginning of time He planned my existence, from the color of my eyes, to the number of freckles on my face, He knows me. He knew me before time began, He will know me in eternity. It is in those moments, when I am reminding myself of these truths, that I can restructure my thinking, make better choices, and know that I have the ability to care for the body He has given me. And, even if reaching my goal isn't easy, it will certainly be worth it.
