The BEST reason to change
When someone writes me about wanting to lose weight or change a negative health habit, one of the first questions I usually ask is WHY? Why is changing important to you? I have discovered that if you have a strong enough 'Why,' you will figure out the 'How'. You will commit to giving the change process however long it needs to finish. In the Bible, I discovered the strongest reason 'Why' to change ever, specifically for those who love God. However as a former pastor of mine said before delivering a hard message, "You better put on your steel-toed shoes because this is ...
Living in the “After-Joy” (Self-Discipline Tip)
I don't like cleaning the kitchen, but I love a clean kitchen. What is a person to do? A. Don't clean the kitchen and leave it dirty B. Clean the kitchen and enjoy a clean kitchen C. Get somebody else to clean it for me For me, choice 'A' wasn't an option. Not cleaning the kitchen would mean missing out on the pleasure of a clean kitchen. Choice 'C' wasn't an option either.

He was a smoker, overweight, and struggling with high blood pressure. However, he decided to change 2 years ago. He is now walking his dog or hiking for 30-60 minutes every day, eating salads and vegetables daily, and cutting down on his portion sizes. He has lost weight and brought his blood pressure down to normal. But the change started the moment he made the daily decision to get well. Do you remember the story about Jesus and the sick ...
How to Release Mental Weight
I've been thinking about the subject of mental weight recently. Mental weights are those things that "weigh" on your mind, most often things that you are worried about, procrastinating on, or just thinking "I really need to do that" in general. I believe that mental weight contributes to physical weight. Why? Because your stress level increases when you allow things or people to weigh on your mind. Many people engage in negative health behaviors, such as binge eating, to calm themselves down or cheer themselves up. But when you focus each day on dropping mental weight, then you decrease your risk of those ...
