IF FAILURE IS ALL THAT YOU ARE USED TO AND MEDIOCRITY HAS BEEN YOUR DWELLING PLACE, THEN WEIGHT LOSS SUCCESS CAN BE INTIMATIDATING. That’s why it’s important that you get an understanding and deep revelation of who you are. How do you see yourself? Do you view who you are in light of the world’s opinion of you or do you see yourself in light of eternity? Who does God say you are? Who is man that God is mindful of him? He made him a little lower than the angels (Psalms 8:4-9).
Who are you that God is mindful of you? Has made you the object of His love? Who are we? Why is that revelation so important? After all, all you want to do is lose weight? Some might say, “I don’t need to get that deep! I just want to lose weight!” What does who you are have to do with it? Everything! If you don’t have a revelation of who you are you won’t be able to stand and fight for the person you know you should be! Any little setback or negative opinion, or wrong look will cause you to second guess yourself and you turn around. You give up your goals. That is why knowing who you are and whose you are is so important on this weight loss journey. It will keep you moving forward. It will cause you to shake off the disappointment of yesterday and get back on track the next day! It will help you to dig in and pursue your goals!
Write me and tell me about it! I would love to hear from you on how you manage to move forward with your lifestyle changes in spite of your circumstances. If fear has held you back, now is the time to deal with it.
