Help me to lose weight and when I do, help me to realize that this is a journey. I have to keep up with what I have learned. Help me to not only love, but to respect myself. I have done enough negative self-talk and it has hindered my weight loss. I wonder if I were to learn to love myself then I could lose the weight and keep it off by living a healthy lifestyle. I didn't fully understand the concept of a healthy lifestyle until now. There is so much that I have to learn and that is not easy. Help me to do the things that I believe are not easy. Thankfully with You, all things are possible and that nothing is too hard for You. I believe that I need to learn to love and respect myself and with You even that is possible. Help me to see myself as a beautiful person, inside and out. After all, Your Word says that I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Thank You, Lord
In Jesus' name,
