12 Tools for Weight Loss

1.     Pray before each meal. God has the power over our eating when we don't. 

Our back yard rose bush gives big, beautiful blooms.


2.     Drink a glass of water when you’re hungry. Dehydration often masks as hunger.

3.     Wait twenty minutes to see if the hunger or craving passes.

 

     

Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.

                                   Psalm 27:14

 

4.     Leave the kitchen. Do a new activity. Read a devotion from Divine Dining.


5.     Be prepared with acceptable snacks if it’s not mealtime.

6.     Be prepared for meals by keeping a grocery list and planning meals.

7.     If you’re going to a restaurant, google options and make your selection before looking at the menu.

8.     Call a friend or accountability partner when you're craving something you'd rather leave alone.

9.     Concentrate on family and friends instead of food during meals.

10.Try new recipes. Explore new vegetables and fruits.

11.Go for a walk at a new place. Try a new exercise. Ask a friend to go with you.
