Dear Heavenly Father,
I am motivated to lose weight, but that is all. Now what? I want to not only lose weight, but be healthy. I realize that even though I will be anything but thin, I want to lose 90-100 lbs. It seems like a big undertaking that is overwhelming. Maybe I should have divided up into small tasks. Maybe I need to reward myself, but how? How do I reward myself without either making myself overwhelmed in the end such as eating too much dessert or buying more than one dress? I have a mind that says "I can do all things through You who strengthens me". On the other hand, it is so overwhelming that it gets in the way. I feel so frustrated, so where do I live by faith even when I am losing weigh? Lord, I need Your guidance. I ask that You would open avenues where I can exercise and do other things that I need to do to lose weight. The urgency factor that often comes into play is what is most overwhelming. That is how I deal with procrastination. I know that I have a compulsion issue and that I often give in to cravings, but I cannot use it as an excuse to be lazy. Lord, I need help...and all of Your help.
