Weight Struggles

I’ve posted a couple times about my struggle with my weight. I get so depressed standing on the scale, knowing that because of my seemingly inability to watch what I eat, that the number on that scale is going to increase.

I know I haven’t posted in about a month and I’m sorry about that. I went back to work after being out 2 months for my foot. Then I came down with what I thought was COVID but the test was negative!! Turns out it was just a really bad cold. But boy did it feel worse than a cold!

Back to my weight struggles. I have signed up for the free trial of Noom and am determined to stick with it. I’m hoping that this approach will be a lot different than other approaches I’ve tried.

Like my mom says, “You didn’t put it on overnight and you won’t take it off overnight.”

I have become pretty depressed about the amount of weight I’ve gained. It is now time for me to do my best to lose it.

Sure, I could blame my weight gain on the 4 meds that cause weight gain. Sure, I could do that. And to be honest, up until recently I have been. But it’s me. It’s me. *I* am eating the wrong foods. *I* am choosing junk over healthier snacks. *I* am at fault here. It’s on me.

“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.”

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

My mindset is about to totally change. With the Lord’s help and with your prayers I know I can shed this weight. We’ll see how Noom helps with this. But more importantly let’s see how God works in this weight loss journey.

“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”

1 Corinthians 10:31


  1. You can do this. Noom has very good tools and it helped me tons, but I had to be ready to do the work first, and it sounds as though you are. Remember to look at the long picture not just how you’re doing today or this week. This isn’t a diet, it’s a healthier way to eat and relate to food. You can do it!

  2. Adding lemon juice to my water helps me. Also, if I still feel hungry, I remind myself to drink my water and give it 20 mins or more. It is a work and progress. It’s lifestyle. There are good foods that help us feel fuller and good foods for snacks, portion, etc. Praying for you, Leigh! Thanks for being honesty and holding yourself accountable!!!
