We've tried our way, now let's try His.

I've lost weight before on any number of plans, but have to keep doing it again and again. Right now I just cannot face another failure and cannot summon the will to count calories, points, carbs or any other thing. When I did Weigh Down Workshop I was successful, thought I had IT conquered, and then back slid. I want to make my relationship with God closer, focus my energy on that, and let the obsession with food take care of itself. Anyone in with me?

First of all, what is Weigh Down workshop? Secondly, I'm with you with feeling like I don't want to constantly think about points, carbs, etc. I wish losing weight was like going to college or getting a degree. You did the work, took the test, received the certificate and then you were done. Too bad it's an ongoing maintenance thing. I guess that's why it's a "life change" instead of a project for now. I just can't imagine that some day I will think "I would rather have a carrot, instead of a cheeseburger." How long will it take to get to that point? Or is it that I need to get to the point where I'm saying, "feeling thin, outweighs the taste of the cheeseburger". Sorry rambling now.

If god really gave a crap about what people are eating, he might have done better to spend time on what starving kids in Africa aren't eating rather than what overweight people are.

God does provide...I will pray for you. I hope your anger subsides so you can deal with whatever it is that is really bothering you.

PS You may beangry at God for starving kids....but ask yourself what are you doing to help those starving children?

That isn't the lords fault. When man entered the earth it was perfect, man is the reason it is the way it is.

Gwen Shamblin created Weigh Down Workshop Exodus out ot Egypt. It teaches you to eat only when you feel true hunger. It is also a Bible study. I did it and I lost a fair amount of weight. I have always been the type of person who will clean my plate. She teaches you to stop eating when you are full and to eat the best tasting bites first. I would eat a hamburger and save the piece with the pickle until last because I thought it tasted the best. Now I eat the best bites first. You don't have to count anything with this program just find out what true hunger feel like and eat then. I developed a closer and more intimate relationship with God thru this program. I think if you google it you will find out more info. I hope this helps.

Keep this stuff in your Sunday day. Don't bring it out here. We don't want to hear it.

To me my faith is not just a Sunday thing, it is my whole being and Following our faith is helpful in our daily walk, of which diet and exercise is. So if it upsets you to hear what God can do for us, then I suggest you stay off of this thread, Remember in the United States, we still have Freedom of Speech, we don't have to like or agree with what others say.
