Sammi, every journey we must take in life begins with a single step, followed by one single step at a time. You have called out to God for help, and that`s the first step to success for a child of God, in anything we attempt to overcome. When we pray to God for "help", He answers, usually thru others, by providing us with the solution(s) as it pertains to our particular need.
What I want to share is the next most important step, when it comes to health and weight loss. The verse below speaks of spiritual living waters, but water also gives physical life, because God designed us so the single most critical thing we need to live and function with optimum health is water. It is said to be: "The Most Powerful Healing Substance Known To Man"
You can "google" for the tons of info on this subject, so I won`t go into that, but I`d like to make a suggestion I made to my niece a short while back, and she was amazed at the results!
For every hour you are awake, drink a large full glass of water. That`s it. No substitutes, and no other drinks. (unless it`s pure fruit or veggie juice, but still drink the water!)
Hydrating your body (the brain is 85% water) provides mental clarity,
gets rid of legarthy, sluggishness, and creates a feeling of well being.
(Dehydration is a key stress factor!) If you feel great, you will probably be
motivated to do more of the things you enjoy, that combine exercise with having fun!
It is also important to get a thorough check-up by a doctor to rule out any underlying health problems, but drinking lots of water, and getting lots of exercise, will really help you to get and stay healthy.
And because i`m a typical mom, I have to add, eat those fruits and veggies!
God loves YOU!
Joh 4:10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
