GREAT book!

This is the day that the Lord has made! I've been rejoicing and I'm glad in it! I started reading "You are not what you weigh" by Lisa Bevere yesterday. Wow! I'm only on chapter 4 but it's been making a difference. This is the first book on weight loss I purchase. I usually get the others from my public library :) This book is not about following a diet. I tried that for the last 15 years and it hasn't helped. 10 years ago I started to question why in the world when I reached my goal my mind still wasn't changed. So far this book is encouraging me to be set free from lies and knowing the Truth which is Jesus. It's about admitting that I depend on God to do what I can't do myself. I'm excited and I'm not expecting change to come as magic. It took me years to get and stay in bondage but God is setting me free and I will be free indeed. As I depend on God I see my behavior change. You'll be glad to know I got up (after 5 weeks) around 6:30 a.m. and went for a prayer walk. God is good. I want to rely on Him alone. I'll write more as I read more :)
