The struggle has been real… I mean really, real. I thought that I could set a goal to lose this weight and push myself to do the work to get these extra pounds off. When it comes to exercising, I lack motivation. When I open the refrigerator there is nothing in it that I want to eat. I have all of these feels and I am finding comfort in food and stillness, yet I wish to be at a different place in my life physically and emotionally.
Prayer: Lord, give me discipline. Help me to be a better steward over the body you have given me. You know why I am unsettled. You know that my overeating and lack of moving my body causes me to feel guilt. When I look in the mirror, I feel shame and disappointment over the choices that I made that have caused me to gain weight. I know that with you all things are possible. I know that you want what’s best for me and that includes living a healthy and full life. Right now I am struggling. I am battling my inner thoughts. Satan wants to steal my joy and my peace of mind. He knows that physical weakness will prevent me from doing works that otherwise might be done on your behalf. So God, please give me the thoughts I need to get up and move this mountain. Help me to push past the physical cravings for things that are not going to bring me the results I desire. Help me to crave only you and let your word be enough to sustain me. It is in your son Jesus’ holy name that I pray this prayer. Amen.
