I woke up with the word ”Restoration” on my mind recently. Just remember this word if you are having difficulty releasing excess weight.
Your body may be in survival mode currently, which prioritizes internal systems repair plus balance to heal, energize, and nourish itself.
Your job is to support the restoration process in your Christian weight loss goals, knowing that your body will reach its ideal size in due season as you do your part every day.
Here are some issues your body may be experiencing now or recovering from:
1. Nutritional Starvation: If you eat a diet that favors processed foods and sweets but provides little nourishment for your body, then your body lacks key nutrients necessary to keep itself in M.I.N.T condition.
Your body will prioritize building itself up nutritionally to support critical functions once you give it the proper building materials with which to work:
2. Sleep Deprivation: This happens if you habitually get less than 7-8 hours of sleep each night.
3. Stress Captivation: This happens if you are either putting unnecessary performance pressure on yourself or life circumstances are stressing you out.
You must address all 3 issues with care every day. Remember, this is about restoration, not condemnation.
Consider your body as a temple under restoration, not a temple condemned!
Review Psalm 23 when stressed. We are meant to live in peace with the Lord as our Shepherd. I don’t believe the Lord meant for us to live in a pressure cooker.
He restores our soul.
Are you recovering from or experiencing nutritional starvation, sleep deprivation, or stress captivation?
Restoration projects are hard work! Some old things must come out while new things are brought in and arranged properly.
But isn’t it wonderful to see the finished work?
Roll up your sleeves. It’s Restoration Time!
Be blessed in health, healing and wholeness,

P.S. When it comes to weight loss, do you often know what you should do but have a hard time doing it?
I struggled with this issue on my own weight loss journey to losing 85 pounds. But I discovered that you can win the Spiritual and mental battle that can make you inconsistent and lose motivation on your weight loss journey.
I developed the Take Back Your Temple program to show you how you can win the battle too.
