If you are a Christian woman who needs to lose 100 lbs or wants to know how long it takes to lose 100 pounds then this support guide is just for you. I know that you have probably spent a lot of time beating yourself up over gaining so much weight, but I’m here to tell you to STOP CONDEMING YOURSELF. Forgiveness is the first “Victory Step” to being set free. You have to forgive yourself for getting “fat” and gaining weight to begin the emotional healing process.
Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you. (Ephesians 4:1-3)
Once you have forgiven yourself, just as God has forgiven you through our Lord Jesus Christ, then you start the process of losing the 100+ pounds. Your body is a precious gift from God and even though your body is plus-sized, that does not make it any less precious. There are several factors that landed you in the position to need to lose 100 pounds.
Now days, foods are highly processed and chemically treated to enhance your hunger and make you crave more.
We are not as active as we used to be, many job positions require sitting sedentary in front of a phone or computer. By the time we get home from work and finish caring for the kids, we’re so wiped out that we have no time or energy to exercise.
We don’t cook fresh wholesome meals at home as much anymore. There are fast food restaurants on very corner and it is so easy an inexpensive to eat while on the go and forgo the homemade time-consuming meals.
We’re stressed, depressed, in debt and worried -- with one out of three girls having experienced some sort of sexual abuse before turning age 18, divorce rates at 80% and women having to raise children on their own, today’s Christian woman is in a distressed state of mind which can lead to overeating. Many women are on the verge of a nervous breakdown. However, there is good news: we can rely on God’s strength to make it through the day!
I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13)
Through God you are made strong, therefore you are a survivor. You’ve been through a lot and yet you’re still here. That in itself is a great accomplishment. God has sent you here to accomplish much much more, and it’s time to take “Victory Steps” to get this weight off so you can regain control of your life. I claim healing in your body right now in the name of Jesus; you will not be defeated by high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke or cancer. You will get healthy and feel whole as a person again because by His stripes you are healed!
But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities’ upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed.
You have to trust and believe that God has your best interest at heart, and the hardships that you are going through right now are going to serve you and many others at a later date in the future. Hold on and be strong!
Guard my life and rescue me; Let me not be put to shame, for I take refuge in you.
I’m sure you’ve already tried the celebrity endorsed weight loss plans on TV. You’ve tried the diet pills, shakes, juices and powders. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Stop the insanity and get started with a realistic eating and exercise plan that fits into your day to day life.
If you want to lose 100 pounds you have to forgive yourself for gaining weight, you have to educate yourself on what works and you have to but yourself in a more positive environment so you can get the guidance and support you need to succeed.
In my anguish I cried out to the LORD, and he answered by setting me free.
One of the best ways to put yourself in a better environment is to join a faith-based weight loss support group and get a Christian weight loss coach to help you stay accountable to a healthy diet and workout plan that’s specially made for a plus sized woman of faith.
