“Stay Home”- Victory Plan

Here’s part of my Victory Plan journal for the “Stay Home” order. Due to this mandate, for several weeks I’ve mostly ate and watched TV. So now I’ve gained over 10 pounds. How depressing.

Then last week God gave me a dream- I was in my classroom, my students were acting crazy, I had no lesson plan, and the principal walks in to observe me. I panicked. What am I going to do?- Then when I woke up and God spoke to my heart, “You need discipline and a plan.” (Note: I am a retired teacher.)

So I’m sharing my Victory Plan Journal for your “Stay Home” mandate. Hope it helps you as well. It’s free for you to print and use for yourself.

My goal is 40 days of victory, in eating and in life general. So here’s my plan, to work through this journal for 40 days. Presently I’m working on Day 5 and I’ve already lost 2 pounds. Yay!

I’ll post more Victory Plans next week. Hopefully this’ll help you begin 40 days of victory for your “Stay Home” mandate. I’m hoping soon we’ll be released from this order soon. Some states are opening up slowly and some states are extending their stay at home order. Hopefully soon, we can return to our so-called normal lives again. What is normal, anyway? What is our new normal?

May God bless you and keep you safe. May you experience success from this day forward. Let me know what you think.

Lord, help them prosper in all their endeavors. Keep all well and safe.

Deborah

Trust and Obey – Focus

Trust and obey, Child. To begin your new year, I want you to focus and listen for My guidance. For I will lead you as you seek My will. Then determine to trust and obey My will,  for there is no other way to your victory.

Scales Went Down. Wow!

Last Friday, the scales went down. Wow! It’s a miracle! During two days I ate three meals with chicken & dumplings, green bean casserole, and squash casserole. And I actually lost weight. Wow! That’s not what I expected! But if I can, then you can too.

On Wednesday and Thursday of last week, I had two different groups of ladies to come eat a meal with me. Yes, that’s what I served them. So much for low-calorie food. I was going for large volume with lower cost to serve 16 ladies. Even though I ate small portions, I never expected to lose weight. Wow!

Scales went down
This looks gross. I know. That way you won’t be tempted to want some. Good.

Child, I told you that if you seek My will and follow My advice, then you’d lose weight.

Wow! Lord, it’s amazing! Last week after having chicken and dumplings for three different meals, I actually lost weight. I can’t believe it.

Child, you sought My advice. Then you listened to My instructions for your portion size. Child, why do you doubt Me? For I know exactly what I’m doing. After all, I’m The Creator.

I created food, although you enjoy mixing up my natural ingredients with other stuff. I also created you body and I know not only what you should eat and not eat, but I also know how much you should eat.

So even if it’s not considered a “diet” food, (chicken & dumplings) if you follow My advice concerning portions size, you will still benefit with weight loss. The key to your success is to seek My will first, then listen to My guidance, trust Me to know what is best and then follow how I lead you. 

Remember that fruit and vegetable diet you tried a few years ago. You ate natural foods, but still gained weight. You gained 5 lbs. in a week. Volume eating of oranges was not good for your body even though it is a natural fruit. 

At that time, you weren’t seeking My advice. Instead you were trying every man-created diet of the month. 

Child, it’s better that  you seek My advice and follow My instructions for I know what is best for your body.

Okay Lord, but now I have two pots of chicken and dumplings left. What do I do with them?

Note: I gave them away. But I’m still amazed that the scales went down 2lbs. Wow!

40 Days of Victory
Day 7

Lord, help me listen to You. I do need to talk with You. But most important of all, help me to listen as You lead.

Yesterday, even though I’ve followed Your basic instructions for my eating I didn’t listen. Therefore this morning the scales went up. Lord, I know why. Not only was it wrong food choices but I didn’t stop eating when You led me to. Open my ears and my heart to listen more intently. Continue reading Help Me Listen

McDonald’s Food Addict Loses Weight

She Lost Almost 100 lbs.

If a McDonald's food addict can, so can you.

McDonald’s food addict loses almost 100 pounds. Wow! If she can, then we can too, especially with the power of God on our side helping us.

Back in 2013, I had lost over 90 pounds following the way God told me to eat- three meals a day, half portions and no snacks. Back then it seemed so easy. I was amazed. Then I walked in freedom for almost four years throughout 2017.

Now two years later, I have gained approximately half of that back.

Three days ago, I made a new commitment to eat in submission to God’s will for 40 days-   http://talkingtomyweightlosscounselor.com/2019/11/16/40-days-of-victory/.

How about you? Is there an unwritten rule that says we have to overeat during these upcoming holidays?

Why do we made excuses to overeat just because of the holidays? Wouldn’t it be wonderful as we celebrate the birth of Jesus, we also celebrate a new birth for ourselves walking in the victory He planned for us?

So why not consider making a new commitment too? Let’s commit together to eat wisely for our victory this holiday season. If a McDonald’s food addict can lose weight, so can we.

40 Days of Victory
40 Days of Victory

Speak these words daily, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” You can do this. You can have victory this holiday season. Believe in the power of God, the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. Walk forth in your victory, the one He has already planned for you.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 

We all experience times of testing, which is normal for every human being. But God will be faithful to you. He will screen and filter the severity, nature, and timing of every test or trial you face so that you can bear it. And each test is an opportunity to trust Him more, for along with every trial God has provided for you a way of escape that will bring you out of it victoriously. 1 Corinthians 10:13 TPT

So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for He faced all of the same testings we do, yet He did not sin. 

So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. there we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it the most.                  Hebrews 4: 15,16 NLT

Remember Your Victorious Future

Victorious FutureRemember Your Victorious Future

Lord, I remember my victorious past.

Child, I remember your victorious future.

But Lord, what worked in the past is not working now.

Child, what worked in your future is working now.

But Lord, what is it? What worked in my future?

Me, My Presence with you. I worked in your victorious future. I worked in your today and your yesterday too. 

So Lord, what would You have me to do?

Submit your will to Me. Let go of your desires for food gratification. Overall, trust Me to lead you. Obey as I lead you. Victory will only come forth as you submit your will for self-gratification to My will for your deliverance. 

Child, this time of deliverance has already been ordained for you. Therefore, it can never be revoked for I have determined and spoke it forth. 

But Lord, what would You have me to do?

Submit yourself to My will for your food and your life. Also submit fully your heart love to Me. Then I will fill your heart with so much love you will no longer desire food gratification. Allow Me to fill you with My love. Then the desire for sweets will be a thing of your past. For you will be filled with the sweetness of My Presence.

Lord, I want this. So I ask You now to fill me with a desire for more of Your Holy Spirit, more of the sweetness of Your Presence.

Thank you Lord, for talking with me and loving me in spite of my many failures. I know I have disappointed You many times and yet, You will love me. Why?

Because you are My child. I love all My children and you are Mine. I never give up on Mine. So I always do whatever it takes in the life of each one to bring them back to My Presence. They expect My punishment, but that is not My intent. My intent is to bring them back to the sweetness of My Presence so that I may bless them beyond their comprehension. 

Lord, I want You. Thank you for loving me even though I don’t deserve it. Direct my steps today so they bring You honor and praise.

Child, I am drawing you to Me now. I am turning all things around. What you saw yesterday will not be today. It is all turning around for My pleasure and the good of those who love Me. For I am God, the God who delivers and sets free. I am the One, the Winner above all others. 

Yield yourself to Me. Your body is the temple of My Holy Spirit. Now yield yourself to Me.

I will give you a new heart and out a new spirit within you, I will take out the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you to walk in My statutes and you will keep My judgments and do them. Ezekiel 36:26-27 NKJV

Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you,   whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a   price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.1Corinthians 6:19-20 NKJV

Stop Overeating

Stop Overeating

If you will just stop overeating, you will lose weight.

But Lord, what do You mean?

If you will do as I told you before, eat three meals a day with half portions and no snacks, then you will lose weight.

Child, you want to lose weight, but I want to strengthen your spiritual listening skills. I want to make you strong. At this time you see yourself as weak, defeated, and a disappointment to Me. 

Just as Gideon said he was the least of the least, you think the same about yourself because you are oppressed by your own personal Midianites.

But My child, I say to you, “O Mighty Warrior.”  Come out of hiding and come forth to your victory, the one I have already planned for you.

photo by AC

Child, every time you reach for extra food whether it’s a second serving, an excess serving, or a snack serving, you open the door for compulsive overeating. Child, this happens every time and you feel trapped in despair. You feel that you cannot stop overeating. 

But My child, I have come forth to set you free. Just as I told Gideon, I’ll tell you, “I will be with you. You will defeat your personal Midianites.”

photo by AC

Lord, I won’t ask for a sign like Gideon did. I believe you.

Child, you will have a sign. As you listen to Me, follow My instructions, and eat in submission to My orders, then your scales will go down in number. This I promise you. In fact, I do not lie and I always keep My promises. Once I speak, they come forth.  

Now I say to you, ‘Get up out of this hole you dug for yourself.

I have already given you victory for I am with you and I am Victory. Now go forth and walk in your personal victory.

Stop Overeating
