The Spiritual Roots Of OBESITY

Join me as I interview Doug and Leah Cromer of Altered Appetite a religious organization that empowers Christians to break free from food addiction by strengthening their appetite for God.

I’ve had struggles with food for most of my life, but had never considered what the spiritual components to weight gain, and eating disorders like Anorexia and Bulimia were.

Then half way through an online weight loss challenge that I’m doing on AskingMom.Org (one of my other websites,) I came upon a ministry that deals with the spiritual roots of obesity.

WOW, what a concept!

WEIGH IN & MEASURE

Today marks EXACTLY one month into the “2019 Weight Loss Challenge” here on my ONLINE FITNESS JOURNAL.

I’ve mentioned before how MUCH I advocate using the tape measure to asses your progress, and TODAY is a perfect example of why

My goal was to lose 10 lbs a month across 12 weeks for this challenge, and I really thought I was going to make it, but this morning the scale showed that I only lost 6.8 lbs this whole month!

It was a huge let down UNTIL I got to the tape measure.

The tape measure showed that I actually lost 15″ inches! Take a look…

WEIGHT LOSS

LOSS OF INCHES ASSESSED BY MEASURING TAPE

TOTAL INCHES LOST = 15″ INCHES

I’m keeping to a 1200 calorie Paleo type eating plan and drinking one gallon of water a day. I’m also getting 30-45 min of cardio approx 5 days a week along with toning exercises, alternating LOWER BODY; UPPER BODY or MIDSECTION using (for the most part) my body’s own weight as resistance. I also drink a quality protein shake within one hour of my cardio, and to shorten my recovery time I take L-Carnitine & Fucoidan.

THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY TODAY!!!
