Two Tips for Beginning Weight Loss

Ready to begin a weight loss journey?

You don't need a new diet.
You don't need a new exercise.
You don't even need a support group, though they do help a lot.

Two things are imperative.

1. Clean out your kitchen of trigger foods and restock with healthy options.

Add fruits, veggies, low fat dairy, and lean protein.


Clean out trigger foods. This was mine. Twenty-three years ago, I would pick up a dozen cream-filled donuts and eat them all by myself.

I lost 100 pounds and have kept it off for twenty years. I haven't bought a donut in probably sixteen years.

 
 
2. Clean out your mind of defeatist self-talk and fill it with God's presence.
 
Led by God
 
 
 
Rid yourself of negative thinking and talking.
Learn a new habit.
Form a new pattern.
Understand you're a child of God.
 
I used to say I'm fat and will never lose weight. With talk like that, I didn't.
 
 
 
Then, don't just clean out the bad stuff, but fill your mind and heart with good stuff. The more we struggle, the more we should read God's Word, pray, and meditate to listen to God's guidance.
 

That's my two tips for beginning weight loss. What's yours?
