Today I am offering you hope! Make 2019 the year you embrace a healthy lifestyle.
You’ve tried lots of diets and sadly they don’t work for long.
I know your struggles because they are mine too. By the end of January my diets were done. But there is hope!
That’s what worked for me! I made little changes that become habits. I lost 20% of my body weight and I’ve kept it off for over 9 ½ years. I call the little changes – little steps. Every little step makes a difference!
I want so much for you to have success too.
That’s why I keep writing this blog every week. To offer you hope and encourage you on your health journey.
I want you to make lifestyle changes too, because they work!
I want you to win!
You can make little lifestyle changes too!
Every little step makes a difference!
Last week I shared my best tip for eating less food.
It’s a simple as switching to a smaller plate.
By switching to the smaller plate I ate less food. I lost some weight! The smaller plate helped me judge my portion sizes too.
Now the smaller plate is part of my healthy lifestyle. You can read more of my story here.
To embrace a healthy life style I have realized that we need to include our body, mind and spirit in our healthy choices.
Our bodies are wonderfully created and we often just focus on our food choices and adding in exercise.
We neglect our minds and how our thinking affects our choices. We hardly ever involve our spirit.
But I have learned that a healthy lifestyle needs to incorporate our body, mind and spirit for long-term success.
As a follower of Jesus Christ I want you to know that God loves you and cares about your health. His power is available for the asking!
Each week I write to encourage you on your health journey.
Some times our lives get crazy busy and taking care of us is last on the list. But I have learned that if I make care for me a higher priority then I care for others better.
I’ll share some of my personal struggles and successes.
I share recipes for yummy and healthy food. We all need fun ideas for nutrient rich food choices.
We’ll learn how our minds and our thoughts affect our choices in life.
We’ll find sneaky ways to help our bodies move more. We will find surprisingly easy ways to include exercise into our daily lives.
We will learn the power that is available to us by claiming God’s promises. God’s words have power!
We will support and encourage each other on the good days when most choices are healthy.
On the rough days when there are more poor choices we will still be encouraged because that’s real life!
Imperfect progress is still progress!
Remember that every little step makes a difference!
Today’s little step: Make 2019 the year we walk together as we create and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
