Here is my opinion on why weight loss is such a struggle. It is certainly why it has been a battle all of my life. Satan uses different avenues to get to all of us. For some it is alcohol. For others it may be gambling or sex. It could be a combination of many different addictions. Without God I believe that it is impossible for me or anyone else to truly break free from their addictions. The one big difference that I have made in my weight loss program is to add prayer. To accept the fact that I absolutely cannot do this on my own. I am a prisoner to my weak sinful flesh and without God I am lost to this. It is almost like a game of chess. You succeed with one strategy and the opponent tries another. If you start to win the war on one addiction...the enemy starts hitting you on others. Has anyone else gotten a handle on an addiction only to see another addictive aspect of your life come at you full force? There is one weapon that we can use for them all and though we at times lose the battle...we will ultimately win the war. That weapon is prayer. I just wanted to take the opportunity to share this with you. I am eternally thankful for the blessing in my life and wanted to acknowledge the One that bestowed those blessings upon me.
