From Discouraged to Victorious!

I will admit, I’m feeling very discouraged today. I had a doctor’s appointment and as usual, they weighed me. The second I saw those numbers, I immediately became discouraged. This is definitely not where I want to be.


Unfortunately, two of my medications cause weight gain. (not trying to blame the medicine but it definitely doesn’t help!)

So I have to work extra hard to lose the weight. I will also admit, I haven’t been doing my very best. I make feeble attempts to lose weight. But I’ve never actually given my battle with weight loss to the Lord.

Until now.

I’m going to ask you all a favor. Would you please hold me accountable and encourage me as I make this journey into losing weight? It’s going to be a struggle, this much I know. But with God’s help and your encouragement, I think know I can do this.

I just came across a verse that is going to help me.

 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize
1 Corinthians 9:24

I’m going to win this battle. Satan is not going to defeat me again on this.

What is something you battle Satan with? Are you tired of feeling like you’re losing the battle?

Look to Jesus. He will lift you up and with Him on your side, you WILL be victorious!

  1. I can absolutely lift you up!!!! ❤ Medicine is a struggle. I've been working on exercise and eating better and I've noticed when I am not caught up in my negative thoughts, God helps me see the positives more clearly. May He be with you!!! ❤

      1. Perfect. Exercise and diet are essential. Nuts are also good, as are the Tuna packets (not the cans) and Sardines are great (if you like them). Yogurt is also good, but find the one that has the least amount of sugar and the highest protein content.

        You’ll do great!
