Let me just say this is very hard for me to share this because this is something I am very private about. Only some people I will open up to about my struggle and my battle. But I know that God puts you in places where it is uncomfortable because in the hard places is where we grow and is made new. (Thats a whole different blog post right there)
This year Im doing things differently in my faith walk. I am putting my faith into action. I do things and say things I would never before but I know God has me going to a new level in my faith and faith is all about action! So here we go.
I have struggled with my weight pretty much my whole adult life. It all started when I got my boyfriend who is now my husband. He took me and fed me hahaha! literally. We started dating and imeddietly fell in love and we would go to all the best places to eat in Sac. OMG we would have so much fun. Eating good food is so much fun, isn’t it?
After giving birth to my third child Brody who is now 6 I have been on a roller coaster to get the weight off. I have tried everything and spent so much money and effort. This is such a hard thing for people to go through. I have so many of my friends that struggle and some have had victories and some have not. So let me just say that I found what I have been searching for and works like magic!
Intermitten fasting is fasting for 16 hours out of the day with only drinking water, black coffee and herbal tea. You only eat 8 hours out of the day. Some people go longer hours of fasting. You can get stronger in this the more you do it.
This came to me a couple of years ago from my friend Maureen but at that time I tried it I was still babying my flesh. I would put stevia in my black coffee which is a no no. It wasn’t a true fast. A squeaky clean fast is only drinking water, black coffee or herbal tea in the fasting hours. Here we are in 2021 and at 39 years old I found myself at such a low point in my life I broke down and seen a Dr about getting weight loss surgery. In my heart this is something I did not want for myself or my body because my beliefs is “No… I need to train my body and flesh in a whole new way and keep it that way and make a new lifestyle change. That is how I want to lose weight. I don’t want it to be forced through surgery and then have it all come back on. I have seen this happen to many people. Oh my goodness I was so frustrated and so hurt in everything in me. I felt so alone and lost and so confused. I left from that dr appointment came home and cried out to God. Lord, I don’t want this to be the way out. Please help me find another way. I know there is another way.
One day as I was looking for a video in one of my community group page with Elizabeth lizberg and I came across a video by Dy Ann Parham. She is a coach for women in intermittent fasting. I listened to her video and I swear, everything she was talking about hit it right on the money and connected to my heart. I was completely in 100%. Just so happen she was starting a corse that following day and I signed up right away.
Today is day 14 and so far I am down 4 pounds and 3 inches in my waist. This has been with no diet change. That is something I need to perfect and its getting there. Right now my fasting hours is healing my body. I was insulin resistant so my fat burning hormones were turned off so that is why every other diet I tried did not work for me. The body is all about time and chemistry. Which is what my body needs to function to burn off the excess fat and reset. I feel amazing. Just so happy to find what works for me, my body and my family. Breakthrough is here and God is forever faithful and always comes through for you. Trust me when I say this… whatever it is what you are believing for, hold on, it’s coming. Just stay patient and keep believing, keep praying, keep speaking the word. Its right around the corner. “God is forever faithful and can be trusted to do this in you! 1 Corinthians 1;9”
Again I will say for me to be writing this is my action of faith. “My dear brothers and sisters, what good is it if someone claims to have faith but demonstrates no good works to prove it?” How can this kind of faith save anyone? James 2:14 Right when I seen this way of fasting working for me I welcomed it with open arms. I thanked God for it joyfully. I did not second guess or double think if this was it. Those days of unwavering faith is over for me. It is now time for mature faith in my life and when you live this way get ready for doors to open that would never think of getting or experience!
I decree and declare that I will help thousands of women and men with this fast method. I shared this with my neighbor and she has already lost 6 pounds in one week! Her peace and joy has been restored. Praise God! Fasting breaks chains, heals, makes new, brings clarity and wisdom. It helps you to hear God more clearly and best of all its dying to self. It crucifies your flesh and puts your spirit in charge! Romans 8:6-9.
