God's Faithfulness

So I woke up this morning with the realization that the enemy has been attacking me and winning. I started off my prayers with a request for God to help me today to be strong and rely on him to win the battle. Yesterday I started a new Bible study focusing on removing the toxicity from our lives. Here is the message for today:

To battle against your toxic thoughts, you must identify and reject them. As 2 Corinthians 10 tells us, the battle against our toxic thoughts is like none other. It is not a physical battle, but rather it is a spiritual battle that requires God's help in fighting.

What are some of the causes of toxic thoughts in your life?

How is that for an answer? One of the biggest areas of toxic thoughts is the idea I need/want foods that are harming me. Satan has been attacking me and winning!

Back in the saddle

Here I am, back again. For the most part my food journey has been going well. I've had a few stumbles with the gluten but I've been going strong on the caffeine. I get tempted occasionally but God has kept me strong.
I went for my physical and that was good but she's still concerned about my blood pressure. She wants to see me in 3 months and wants me to seriously work on losing some weight. I want to set a goal and really work towards reaching it by Oct 15. That is my prayer this week. That God will show me what my goal should be and guide me to it.
I went for a long hike yesterday on my day off as a start to get back into my exercising. Tonight I have a date with the treadmill.
