You Are Invited!!!
Thursday, January 16, 2014
Hi all! Just wanted to share with everyone about an online Bible study I'm going to be starting. It is on the book "Made To Crave" by Lysa Terkeurst. It's starting this Sunday, January 19th. It is completely FREE, you just have to buy the book, which should be available at any major retailer (like Barnes & Nobel, etc).
I am doing this now, because I've been struggling a bit. As a quick refresher, I started SP on 1-1-10 and over the course of 25 months, I lost just over 60 pounds. By February 2012, I was under my goal weight of 150. For the next year plus, I was able to stay in the 148-150 range without much trouble. Then in April 2013, I hurt my shoulder. I couldn't workout quite as much as I had been. I went to PT for it throughout May 2013, and it got better. But for some reason, I lost my zeal for running & hitting the gym. It became a struggle to make myself be active more than 1 or 2 days per week. Also, my nutrition started to slide (what a surprise, right?). I started indulging in more 'treats' with my kids. From May to December, I think I gained about 7 pounds. I am NOT interested in going down this road again! ENOUGH with this stupid food addiction!!! I have realized that I'm not turning my temptations over to God, I'm just keeping them and privately enjoying it, even though I really hate it. Do you know what I mean? I would rather rely on food for comfort & pleasure than rely on God for those things, and THAT, my friends, is a GREAT BIG no-no!!!
So, I just wanted to invite y'all to join me on this journey of rediscovering my strength in the Lord to resist my demons, and learning to satisfy all my deepest desires, yearnings, and cravings with HIM, not food!
