Our mind, body, & spirit play a HUGE role in the affects on our emotions, attitude, and daily choices. This is a big hurdle that I’m constantly seeing & fighting against in helping people with weight loss. To be quite frank, weight loss is all in the mind…it’s what lies between the ears. It DOES have a quick domino affect on our spirit & body.
The spirit and soul are held captive by our physical choices…and beauty is a physical manifestation of the spirit & soul. So let me break it down even further… how we “feel” about ourselves when we look in the mirror will reflect our spirit & soul. Sometimes we just don’t know how to get out of the self-inflicted never-ending circle of emotional eating due to basing our beauty on how we “feel.” If you are not happy with what you see in the mirror, then you must ask yourself, “Have I been making the right healthy physical choices?” Think about that! Then listen to me again… "The spirit and soul are held captive by our physical choices…beauty is a physical manifestation of the spirit and soul.”
“The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness…” Matthew 6:22-23
Food for Thought:
1) Have you asked God to show you where you have made unwise choices in life?
2) Believe that others see the outward radiance of your inner life. YOU have so much to offer… let your light shine for others to see!
3) If you have “dieted” in the past…have you found that it just doesn’t work? When diets do not allow the foods God has provided for you, then that should be RED FLAGS! Don’t “diet”...Instead, just avoid man-made processed foods with high calories & no vitamins/minerals. Choose God-made foods…after all, He created you so He should know what your body needs, right??
4) We are to be “good stewards”…of money and of our body. Are you being a good steward of your body? Is your only source of physical activity chasing kids or being taxi driver for everyone? If so, this does NOT count as exercise.
