This blog will talk about my personal weight loss journey, and lessons I have been learning about food, and the life of freedom from food. All of this will occur through the lens of my relationship Jesus Christ. Why? Because this is where true hope is found. I have found ALL the answers to my lifelong struggle with food through my relationship with Jesus Christ.
Some of you reading may not be religious, and may be unfamiliar with God. I want to introduce you to him. He can help you with any fear, burden, struggle, or problem you may have. He wants to help you and give you life to the fullest extent. On this blog, you will notice I use the words Jesus and God interchangeably; in both instances, I am talking about God ( I don’t want anyone to be confused). Here are some additional things I believe about the journey to weight freedom:
God has designed the human body with two sensations that allow us to maintain an ideal body weight – hunger and satiety, more commonly known as fullness.
Obeying these sensations will be the first step in allowing you to maintain your ideal body weight and will have undeniable health benefits.
Eating healthy foods and engaging in regular physical exercise are important components of taking care of the body that God has given you. If, however, you have been eating outside of hunger and overeating, your first step needs to be to learn “how” to eat, and bring your true devotion back to God.
I believe in Jesus, and that he came on earth to pay the penalty for our sins by dying on the cross over 2000 years ago. His death and resurrection have made it possible for us to be set free from our sin, live an abundant life, and have life in heaven. Jesus’ sacrifice has provided a way for us to find ultimate freedom from overeating and excess weight. Believing in what He says and being obedient to the commands in the Bible will put you on the path to freedom. This blog wants to help you develop your relationship with Jesus Christ, and provide a pathway for permanent weight loss.
I believe God can help you achieve weight loss, no matter the amount. I want to help you make your first steps and introduce or reintroduce your heart to God. Welcome to Freedom Chasers!
