My Journey to Eating Right and Exercising...
One thing that really started getting me on the right track is the Holy Spirit speaking to me about being a Temple of the Holy Spirit, well I know by the road I was on, I was not glorifying the Lord in any way..
This verse is one the one that spoke to me before I began my journey, I pray it brings encouragement to you as well.
My body is the temple (the very sanctuary)of the Holy Spirit Who lives within me, Whom I have received [as a Gift] from God. I am not my own, I was bought with a price[purchased with a preciousness and paid for, made His own]. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Our bodies are a temple of the Holy Spirit, God does instruct us and lays out for us that we must take care of it.
When I began my journey in October, I weighed 262, I really needed to do something, I have some ailments low back problems, high blood pressure and asthma, I am praying after I loose some of this weight that a few of those ailments will go away, so I joined a gym and I have been doing weight training and Cardio (treadmill) 3 x's a week, even if your not able to join a gym, there are plenty of exercises you can do at home~even beginning a little helps~I now weigh 244 and I have lost atleast 12 inches around my waist since then.
I know that the Lord can give each of us strength as we trust in Him in this area of our lives.
I prosper in every way and [my body] keeps well, even as my soul keeps well and prospers. 3 John 2
