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

Break This Cycle

So Lord, what can I do to break this cycle of losing weight, binge eat, gaining weight, experience sorrow, repent, lose weight, binge, and repeat again?

Child, I’ll break this cycle for you.

But Lord, how? What can I do? Continue reading Break This Cycle

Buffets-Tools of Satan?

Buffets-tool of Satan

Buffets-tools of Satan? I think so. As I looked back over time, I then realized  weight gain started when we were on that cruise ship. All those buffets, so many options and so much food. Fill your plate. Go back for seconds. Eat as many desserts as your hearts desires. Greed is encouraged. Lord, buffets-tools of Satan? Yes, I think it’s so. Lord, what do You say? Continue reading Buffets-Tools of Satan?

“Break These Self-Imposed Chains”

Lord, would You break these self-imposed chains? You delivered me before. But now I’m entangled again in food addiction. I want my victory back. So would You deliver me again, Lord?


Lord, would You break these chains. I’m trying to eat correctly as before when I lost 90 pounds. But now I’m older (66) and my body refuses to let go of excess weight. It’s up a few pounds, down a few pounds, up and down, and so on.

So I get discouraged. Then I eat whatever. Immediately my body swells up with added weight gain. Lord, would You grant me another chance and break these self-imposed chains of food addiction?


Lord, break these self-imposed chains.

You delivered me  of 90 pounds before (at age 61). It seemed so easy then. I ate three meals a day, half-portions, and no snacks. Back then my weight dropped off. Lord, is it possible You could give me another chance and break these self-imposed chains again? What can I do?

Child, first of all, I love you as you are. But since you’re not happy with yourself, I’m going to help you again. Although there will be differences this time because. . . as you said, your body is older (approaching 67). 

He will break these self-imposed chains

To begin with, you need more water. I’ve talked with you about this before. And you need to start moving more. Do some bodily movements, exercise, each day. Try 30 minutes daily. It doesn’t matter what activity you choose as long as it’s movement. The older you get the more your body needs movement just to keep those joints free. 

So Lord, are You telling me to eat the same way when I lost those 90 pounds?

Yes. Just add more water and some exercise this time.

Child, to you exercise is a bad word. So from now on, call it body movement. Think of it as a graceful dance.

Lord, do You want me to start dancing to praise music?

The choice of body movement is up to you. But it’s important at your age to keep it moving to keep your joints free. It doesn’t matter what you choose, but it’s important to “move it, move it, move it.”

Those are your goals. Eat according to My past instructions, add more water, and increase your body movement.

Water is important because it lubricates your joints and keeps them fluid. It’s also good for your skin. It might even puff out of those wrinkles you stress over. (I sense He’s smiling at me.)

Hydration is good for your body. The older you get the more the water in your body dries up. So add more to keep all things moving along. You know what I’m talking about? (He’s smiling again.)

Know this Child- I love you. Now go forth in your victory. You know . . . the one I have already planned for you. (More smiling.) I’m going to do it again.

Break these self-impossed chains, please?

CONFESSION

My Confession in 2013.

Here I am again Lord, all bloated, full, miserable, and ashamed, wondering, “How did I get here?”  I sense that my overeating has created a gulf between me and You. I feel that as I overfed my fleshly desires, your presence left. Didn’t I say yesterday that I wanted to be free of this bondage? Then last night, I was in the kitchen stuffing my face until well after 10p.m. Lord, how can I ever break free from this vicious cycle of defeat? Continue reading CONFESSION
