Are you tired of starting your diet over every Monday?
Does it seem like you gain and lose the same five pounds every week?
How many times have you said "this is it. I’m starting a diet on Monday?"
And the weekend was an all out binge?
Promising you’re going to live on chicken, broccoli, salmon and green beans, oats, eggs and protein shakes, doesn’t work!
Let’s face it, anyone who’s been on a diet knows that willpower doesn’t last.
I rode this emotional roller coaster for years, and I learned the hard way, so I want to help you avoid the years of struggle.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then you have the power of the Holy Spirit working in you.
Maybe you never made this connection, but it’s absolutely life-changing.
Did you know that you can trade willpower for the Holy Spirit gift of self-control?
No diet can give you the spirit of self-control only God can do that.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and self-control. (2 Tim 1:7)
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; (Gal 5:22-23)
But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. (Gal 5:16-17)
In Christ, we have the ability to have self-control.
I Created This Proven 5-Step System Based on Revelation 3:20 and the Acronym S.A.F.E Surrender Appetite Faithfully Everyday.
Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me. (Rev. 3:20)
Practice these 5 Ps at mealtime, and walk in the Holy Spirit gift of self-control
The 5 Ps:
Pause before you decide to eat, put on the Holy Spirit gift of self-control, and ask yourself if you’re really hungry or if you’re just feeding your emotions, boredom, or stress.
Pray before meals. Invite God to eat with you. Lead with gratitude.
Portion each meal. Be mindful of the amount of food you’re eating. If you want to indulge in a treat, serve yourself a portion on a plate and then put the rest away. Refrain from eating out of containers, bags, boxes, or pans.
Practice Grace, and get back on track faster and avoid beating yourself up. Eat slowly, take smaller bites, and try setting your fork down between bites. Create small daily wins in faith.
Plan ahead. Make healthy meals as often as you can and always have healthy snacks on hand. Don’t wait until you’re hungry to find food. I know I rarely make good choices when I am starving. Plan to go have ice cream with your kids, plan date nights with your husband, but make the next meal a healthy one.
Why this works: we can’t conquer spiritual problems with worldly answers.
I’m never going to leave you without asking you to get into action.
Nothing happens without action, and I’m here to be your accountability partner.
