Renew your mind and change your life

I know that it is easy for those who have struggled with their weight for a long period of time to remain stuck in denial. We KNOW that we need to do something about our health but we tell ourselves, “It isn’t really THAT bad” but it really is. We know that God cares about our inner well-being but he also cares about our physical condition.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.
You have tried EVERYTHING under the sun in an attempt to lose weight. You name it, you have tried it…pills, shakes, the point system, cabbage soup, starving yourself, killing yourself in the gym, denying yourself foods you enjoy, and the weight is STILL THERE.
I believe that you can go on all the diets that you want but you will fall short every time if you don’t change your thinking as well as address what is driving the behavior. As long as those old thoughts and beliefs are still there you will continue to sabotage yourself and fall short of your desired goals.
You must RENEW your mind.
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.
This is exactly what I help my clients to do…renew your mind and change your thinking. If you’re constantly telling yourself that you’re a loser and you’ll never lose weight then why would you be successful doing so?
There is no magical, one size fits all approach to weight loss and I recognize that. I also recognize that there is A LOT of pain behind the weight. There are years, maybe even decades of words spoken over you, hands that should never have touched you, loss of people you cared the most about, abandonment, failed relationships, etc. These “wounds” are causing you to seek comfort with food [or any substance really] and while that might help in the short term, in the long term you are causing more suffering to yourself.
If you’re ready to break these chains of the past and move forward I can assist you. It’s not easy work but it can be done if you’re truly ready.
