I Wish I Was Fit

Made In His Image writes…

Hey,

I am trying get in shape. I am not fat but I am not fit either. You know, somewhere in between. And today I was talking to my mentor and he told me that God will help me lose it. But only then when I accepted the way I am; because God created me and when I say something like I look so horrible I am really just saying that God created something horrible. Honestly, I have no idea what I want to ask. But is there a way that I can appreciate myself. Cause there are times when I’ll go “I wish I was fit or “I could wear a lot more kinds of clothes” or “I wish I was fit I’d look more good.” I don’t even know if this makes sense? Really but I am praying that God will convey to you what I am trying to say. I am really sorry for something so vague. :p
:D

P.S. In the two years that I have known you I fell in love with each and every woman here. So, I love you and would say that I love you to the others too.

Dear Made In His Image,

You are so sweet. We love you too. We enjoy serving you through this ministry. You don’t realize how you and all of the WeUsed2bu girls bless us. Really it’s an honor and privilege to speak into each of your lives.

I understand perfectly what you are saying about wanting to feel better about yourself. I have had that feeling too, but the thing that I felt most terrible about was my attitude and my thinking. I wanted God to help me change my heart and mind; as I focused on renewing my mind through His Word I began to feel better about myself as a person and as a child of God, because I began to fulfill His will in my life. (Romans 12:2)

His Word helped me discover who I am in Christ Jesus and in Christ Jesus I am glorious. I think that’s why I love that song by David Crowder Band, Everything Glorious. I will share with you a couple of verses from the song so you can see what I am talking about.

The day is brighter here with You
The night is lighter than it’s hue
Would lead me to believe
Which leads me to believe

(chorus)
You make everything glorious
You make everything glorious
You make everything glorious
And I am Yours
What does that make me?

heart02I think your mentor has a point regarding not putting yourself down, because our God has done an excellent job making you. (Psalm 139) However, if you feel out of shape I would suggest that you start working out and change your eating habits. That is what I did. About four weeks ago I said to myself,

“I want to feel better. I am tired all the time, my energy level is low. My back is aching. I need to get back to the gym.”

So that is exactly what I did. I joined the local YMCA with my hubby. My brother, who is a gym junkie, found us a work out program on bodybuilding.com that includes a nutrition plan in their program. That was the start of my fitness kick. I feel great now. I was even more tired at first, but now I have more energy and I feel good about myself because I am not only building up my body, but my spirit and soul too. I certainly feel more balanced. We just have to keep in mind that,

“Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come.” 1 Timothy 4:8

I hope this helps Made In His Image.

Sincererely,

Trophy of Grace

    This is a very encouraging comment. Thank you so much for sharing what has helped you. It is all very practical advice.

    I would like to encourage to not hate yourself though. Our done has done a beautiful thing creating you. He is in the process of renewing and remolding you daily into a mighty woman of God. Love that about yourself. Love that you are child of The Most High God. You are special and have a divine purpose. Don’t hate who you are because who you are becoming is the woman of God that He created you to be. Who you are now is the woman He gave HIs son Jesus for. He loves you so much! Don’t hate what He loves so much.

    This seriously helped me a lot too :)
    I always felt badly about myself…
    Then God has to remind me that beauty is only temporary…
    But out Spirit is forever so we better make the best of it!
    I decided to stop looking so much in the mirror and to stop weighing myself. I also am going to stop feeling guilty if I eat a cookie or something like that and not hate myself.
    What helped me lose some weight was drinking lots of water and only water no juice, coke, etc.
    I also walked an hour everyday and lost weight! Also stop eating junk food and substitute healthy food. If you can’t deal with that then you can have a cheat day. Personally since I changed my diet I don’t miss the junk I used to eat. I also switched white bread with brown bread. Also eat every 2-3 hours a small healthy “meal”. Instead of 3 big meals so that your metabolism will burn and u won’t feel hungry.
    Anyways, sorry this is long.
    I still at times hate myself even though I am not overweight and people say I’m fine… I know it’s just the devil wanting me to take my focus off of God and focus on myself so I can fall into a trap. But God is always there to pick me up :)

    If it helps you… I took a sticky note and put (Psalm 139:4) on the mirror to remind myself.
