I want to lose the weight.
I want to be free from the scale, free from gluttony.
I want to feel good in my own skin.
I want to know I tried my hardest and did everything I could to lose the weight and didn’t just give up.
I want to stop making excuses for why I haven’t lost more weight.
I want to cease giving in to those little temptations and then playing it off and thinking I can just work off the extra calories.
I don’t want to stop now and wonder if I could have gone all the way.
I don’t want to let food rule my life.
I want to be brave.
I don’t want to turn to food for comfort.
I want GOD to be my only comfort.
I want to remove stress and despair and misery from my life by not allowing food to control me.
I don’t want to just read about the success of others; I want to be that success, too!
I want to exercise for the rest of my life.
I want to love the person God created me to be instead of wishing I were someone else.
I want to create healthy habits for myself and my family.
I want to model a balanced lifestyle, not a life characterized by obsession with food and weight.
I want to be a friend to myself and not constantly bemoan every flaw.
I want to go through a day fully in control of my eating.
I want to focus on family during the holidays, not food.
I want to view food in a healthy way.
I want to make food just one part of my life, not ALL of my life.
Christ is my all. He must become greater; I must become less!
