Episode 139-I Love A Party
An excuse many have is I can’t lose weight because I want to eat at family gatherings, parties and holidays. Hey we have one of those coming up in a few days. It’s called the Fourth of July.
Here’s what happens. When a party, holiday or family get-together happens we look forward to it. Then we begin thinking about seeing everyone so our next thought is, “I need to lose weight.” Then we think, “But this isn’t the right time. I don’t want to be limited in what I eat at the party. I want to have fun like everyone else.” So, we use the thing that might have been a reason to begin losing weight to become an excuse for not losing weight.
When one woman realized she was using every event or gathering that came up as an excuse for not getting healthy, she finally drew a line in the sand. She said, “I’m going to get healthy anyway no matter what comes along. But I can’t do it without your help God.” And she did. Why? Because she made a firm decision not to let her excuses rule her and she asked for God’s guidance and direction.
We talk about how to get through this excuse in this episode.
