Have you had a few setbacks? Was Mother’s Day a blow out for calories? Tempted to give up and give in to more poor choices? Don’t do it! Every little step makes a difference. You are making progress! Believe those words!
Remember my friend, Cecile and her success story? She kept taking little steps to be healthy and over the course of 7 years she lost 141 pounds. She said, “No matter how slow the weight loss is, don’t give up! God will never give up on you!”
We are about to leave CAMP #3! Let’s look at the little steps we learned and made into habits! You’ve come a long way!
Nutrition: Add 1 serving of vegetables (½ cup cooked or 1 cup of leafy) to 1 meal. Continue using a smaller plate at each meal or snack. Drink water as your main beverage.
Exercise: Add 5 minutes of exercise for a total of 20 minutes per day. You can divide it into 2-10 minute sessions or even 4-5 minute sessions on a crazy day.
Mental: Recognize that you have an inner critic. Identify a lie and replace it with a truth statement.
Spiritual: Pray and access Jesus’ power. Choose a verse to memorize. Here is a good one. “Be strong in the Lord and His mighty power”. Ephesians 6:10
TODAY’S little STEP: Get back on track! Go down to a lower Camp for a few days, if you need to. Then keep climbing, one little step at a time! Reward yourself with a non-food reward!
Be sure to stop by next week for – Feeling Pretty Today!
