Alone in this journey of good healthy habits

Friday, January 23, 2015

Ye, I sometimes feel alone on this journey to good healthy habits! emoticon emoticon emoticon when others are binge eating and STILL LOOK GREAT! emoticon ( If they eat that way long enough, they may look more like me! )

Sometimes it IS better to keep silent then to explain what is bothering you. Certainly, we can't complain to the beautiful healthy people that we are some how different.
Truth is, we are not different, other than we prefer to continue to eat wrong and not exercise. * (A few of us do have health issues that help us become obese)

This can make a person feel so alone, and even lonely. Especially when the rest of the world seemingly goes on its merry way of eating and drinking unhealthy yet looking wonderful!

He IS ALWAYS near us, even if we can't feel his presence. In all honesty, faith is just that-faith and we know he is with us by FAITH. How do we get faith?

Romans 10:17
So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.

Romans 12:3
..... God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

Hebrews 11:6
But without faith it is impossible to please him:

Our feelings will lie to us and make us feel alone, when in fact we are NEVER ALONE.


Let's call on him while he is near!

    As you have declared your faith often my friend. God never abandons nor forsakes us. Yet, in our humanness we think that way at times. I have to get a reality check from God's Word often.
    Bless you sis,
    Keep hanging in there.

    Pain touches everyone. Sometimes admitting that you aren't perfect, if only out loud to yourself, makes it feel like it doesn't matter as much that you are heavy, or have problems, that you are still going to fight for yourself to live a better, joyful life. And that when you do feel alone, and don't love yourself as much, that God calms that hole in your heart, and heals those pains, so you can grow into health. For all those people that look so good, sooner or later life's stress catches up with them too. It's how you wear your armor that helps. Being calm, not adding to your pain. eva

    It is so good to know that God is with us in everything that happens to us including our weight issues. I feel so alone sometimes, but remember God is there and my spark family. I think it would be great if we had someone in person with us all the time who was in the same boat, but life doesn't work that way. Glad you know God is in your corner. Lean on Him!! Don't forget we are all here for you too!

    I was looking at a little 20 something girl today and tempted to envy her metabolism. But as I would never like to go back to the immaturity I had at that age, I'm choosing to work hard instead. And for the record, you are so not alone, and neither are the rest of us. Yay!

    Thanks so much for sharing these thoughts with us! They are so true! God is always with HIS people, so we need have no fear or anxiety, or worry! We are spiritual beings having a physical experience, and we will go BACK to being spiritual very soon! emoticon

    I don't know where you're looking - or perhaps you have selective vision - but a full 66% of the population is overweight or obese. ONLY 33% / or less, are within normal weight ranges. So, there are a LOT more who are suffering with this. But yes, when it comes right down to it, we are pretty much alone in this, in the sense that each of us has to deal with whatever is within us that causes us to overeat.
