Choose Your Weight Loss Journey

* * * 4 Things You Should Know * * *

Have you been struggling with how to lose weight? Possibly weight gain has been a problem for you most of your life. Do you feel hopeless when it comes to your weight?

Possibly changing your attitude about losing weight may be a key factor to help you. Have you ever considered starting a weight loss journey? It may be that you can view losing weight as a journey rather than a chore or a job. View this journey as a cross-country and not a sprint.

1. Journal

Have you tried journaling? Journals can be used in nearly everything. Why not journal regarding your weight and the goals that you have for losing your weight. I am a firm believer that it becomes more viable when you write something down and when you visualize it as well. When you journal you have a visual record of what is really going on with yourself. It makes it easier to make adjustments where needed.

Sometimes you may want to question why or when you are overeating. As a young girl growing up I had a friend that was on the heavy side. I on the other hand was always thin. I was always trying to gain weight throughout school, until one day I just accepted to be happy with the way that God made me. How many of you know that sometimes we want to look like someone else or be like someone else? Or possibly you wish you had something that the other person has? One day I asked my friend about her eating habits. She told me when she felt bad she would turn to food for comfort, but afterward she would feel bad. I on the other hand was just the opposite when I felt bad I would not eat. Food did not taste the same. There would be this bad taste in my mouth. It was as though we both ate and did not eat for the same reasons only she was heavy and I was very thin. Although I cannot identify with being heavy I can identify with being thin and not liking it at the time.

2. Journey

Sometimes a journey does not occur immediately. Sometimes it may take days, months, or years. It is important to be observant of yourself and your surroundings while on the journey. I am so amazed when I see people testifying about the 100 pounds that they loss. I am even more amazed when they show before and after pictures. This is definitely a tell all. I recall a co-worker showing me a picture of her weighing many pounds. I was surprised, because I never knew that until she showed me the picture. To look at her now, who would have guessed?

Acts 1:7

And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.” Things happen in God’s time not yours. There may be times we want to rush God.  Does this sound familiar?   You may think this weight loss is taking to long. Possibly you feel exhausted and want to give up. Don’t give up, but persevere.


Have you asked yourself, “How is your attitude?” Besides diet, exercise, and lifestyle, attitude is everything while on your weight loss journey. According to Mayo Clinic staff you should be positive and focus on how good you’ll feel when you weigh less. They further add to picture yourself celebrating every success about this journey. I could not agree more.

4. Gratitude

I am a firm believer that practicing gratitude can definitely affect your well-being for the better. There are so many things that you can find to be grateful for, just look around you. Gratitude is a practice. If at first it feels strange just continue practicing it. It does get better.  Gratitude can become a lifestyle.  What are you grateful for?
