Beginners guide to health – diet free!
We don’t need a new diet! There are little steps we can take to lose weight and get healthy. Little changes are easier to do and much healthier. Every little step makes a difference!
Hey Girlfriend and fellow mountain climber! We’ve been climbing this mountain together for a while now. I’m so glad to see you here today. You are making a difference in your health with every little change you make! Every little step makes a difference!
We’re just about ready to leave Base Camp! You did it girlfriend, you finished the first part of the climb!
Let’s pack up by doing a little review. You will find a link back to the original posts if you want to refresh your memory.
Here’s a quick outline of the four little steps of Base Camp!
# 1 Backpack – no diet, just use a smaller plate or bowl at each meal or snack! https://littlestepstohealth.com/2015/06/22/1-sneaky-trick-to-lose-weight/
#2 Hiking boots – 10 minutes a day of intentional exercise
start with 2 five-minute periods if you’re new to exercise
#3 Helmet – repeat this healthy self-talk statement daily
“I can make small changes.
These little steps are easy for me to do and they make a difference.
Taking care of me is important!”
#4 Safety ropes – pray and ask Jesus for His help
Choose a verse to memorize.
Here’s a good verse to use to get started.
“Isaiah 41:13 For I am the LORD, your God,
who takes hold of your right hand and
says to you, “Do not fear, I will help you.”
Together we worked on these 4 little steps for at least 1 month. We made these little changes to our lives. These little steps make a difference!
We imagined a fireside encouragement chat with Jesus our Gentle Guide. He knows and loves us and says to us, “Some of you have climbed this mountain before. You tried to do it alone and you gave up. You are so tired of trying and failing that you don’t want to try again.
But, you can do it, with Me as your guide. Claim my promises in the Bible. My promises can never be broken. I say to you in Isaiah 41:10 ‘So do not fear, for I am with you, do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you’.
This time you are not alone, I am holding your right hand. I will never let you go! You have safety ropes attached to Me. I can guarantee that you will never be alone. In Hebrews 13:5b I say to you, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.’ When you pray, remind Me of these promises, and claim them for yourself.”
Then we found an accountability partner. You did do this right girlfriend? We picked someone who is encouraging but firm. We checked in once a week and reported on our climbing progress!
If you haven’t found someone yet, I have a plan in the works for us to be able to communicate easily. More on that to come…. I am hoping to create a closed Facebook group for us. But that’s a big learning curve for me! But every little step makes a difference! LOL
This past week we learned that we’ve used food as a reward for way too long. We found some non-food rewards that are really fun!
If you haven’t already rewarded yourself, then it’s time! You deserve it Girlfriend!
TODAY’S little STEP: Review the requirements of Base Camp and keep taking those little steps. Reward yourself with a non-food reward. Grab your climbing equipment and get ready to climb to Camp #2!
Every little step makes a difference!
