31// My take on body positivity and what has actually moved the needle for me in weight loss.
Manage episode 352629569 series 3383233
Weight loss is such a hot heated and insanely personal topic. The industry at large is constantly screaming at you that their way is the best, the fastest, and the only way to get lasting weight loss. Most of it is a load of crap, if we're really being honest.
What works for me might not work for you and vice versa.....However, I don't come at weight loss from a food and/or fitness angle. I come at it from an obedience angle.
I hate the message that body positivity sends. My body is not overweight because God made it that way. My body is overweight from making food and idol and walking hand in hand with gluttony. My body is overweight because I turned to food instead of taking my thoughts captive and making them obedient.
I don't hate my body....in fact, I'm insanely grateful and thankful that though I treated it poorly, it's still going strong for me. But I will abuse it no longer.
The Lord convicted me in this area for YEARS and I just kept pushing it away because changing was too hard and sitting with the emotions that pushed me to eat were just too painful.
But that's all different now. If you feel trapped in a emotional eating cycle, this episode is for you. There is hope and you can lose the weight you so desire to lose.
I'd love to connect!
