My lifestyle was killing me and I knew I had to do something about it. I have learned that the best way to develop a healthy lifestyle is to discover the source of problem and then put a plan into action that will develop good health.

Encourage One Another

Part of abundant living involves associating with other people. In fact, social reinforcement is necessary, even crucial, to living. Dieting is not! When other people reinforce you, you feel better about yourself and are most likely to succeed in any endeavor you undertake, including losing weight. If you isolate yourself, there is no chance for reinforcement.

That's why you especially need the fellowship of others. You need their encouragement, and they need yours. Don't get out of the habit of going to church just because you are overweight or on a diet or feel you have nothing attractive to wear. Ask God to give you the courage to obey His Word and go to church. The blessings you receive and are able to give others will strengthen and encourage you to become the person God created you to be.
