Lord, have mercy!
Don't "over plan" or you will never even start...because your plan isn't complete.
I, through the grace of God, and His ever present assistance, have managed to drop a significant amount of weight this last year.
It was Mother's Day...and during Liturgy I asked for God's help in this seemingly silly request. When people are dying, and are poor, and sick...and here I was asking for help to lose the weight that I gained due to my own overindulgence and greed.
...and yet, I humbly asked. ....and He kindly answered.
I stopped over-eating that very day.
Since then, I took to walking regularly throughout the summer, and staying away from carbs as much as possible.
It hasn't been "easy" but, the rewards are great! Don't overthink it, just do it!
I am far from my goal, but, I am over half way there!
Lord, have mercy on all of us who struggle with this "addiction"!
