I remember a time when I had gained about ten pounds and had tried everything I could think of to lose it. My clothes were getting tight; I was very uncomfortable; and I wanted to lose the weight quickly. For a few days, I ate no fat at all. When that diet didn't work. I ate nothing but protein. When I had no success with all-protein after a couple of days, I decided to eat only nine hundred calories per day. When nothing was working and I still failed to shed my extra pounds, I tried something else and finally concluded my metabolism had gone haywire and my hormones were out of whack. As you can imagine, I became very frustrated.
One day, God spoke to me and said something very simple, but something I will never forget: Consistency is the key. Since that day I have certainly found those words to be true. If we want to make progress in any area of our lives, we need to keep doing the right thing over a period of time. That is what consistency means.
(This comes from Joyce Meyer: Never Give Up)
This was the book I started reading that got me back on track with a weight loss program. It really spoke to me straight! It can be used in many areas of our lives.........
