People find it so hard to lose weight because it is their bad habits.

    Bad habit are developed over, sometimes, long periods of time. Most of us have done the wrong things our whole life and by the time you get to 30 or 40 it is ingrained in us too deep. It takes a change of mind to change your life and only YOU can do it. And as the definiton of insanity states, only when we change the way we do things will we get different results. We all have alot of things we need to focus on but we only need to focus on self and stop looking to be like others. We have let the media dictate who we will become instead of becoming who we were created to be. With technology being as it is we can find out anything in seconds. So we must seek out how to...(change the things we need to change). This takes a self searching that many do not want to do. We must go deep into our lives to see what went wrong and then with GOD's help we can go back and change it.

    Um, I don't know that God will help.

    Many people say, "if it is God's will..." and when they fail, they just say, "well God obviously didn't want it."

    YOU must want the change and YOU must make the effort.

    It's no good relying on something or someone else, it's your body, you change it.

    The fact is, you're right about the bad habits syndrome. People get used to having what they want, when they want and it's down to them to change that, but it's never too ingrained as to be impossible to change.

    You CAN teach an old dog new tricks, but you have to want it first.

    You have to learn that you have to have smaller portions less frequently. You have to learn to say no to that chocolate bar and you have to learn to get off the fat rear and do something. Exercise is a must and it has to be regular too. Start slowly and build up, don't try and do it all at once.

    The results may not show weekly, but you have to remember, your whole body is changing. the pounds will come off and with their disappearance comes a feeling of self-belief that shows you that if you can get that far, then maybe you can go further.

    Losing weight is a life choice, not something you can do half-heartedly and never believe in the quick fix.

    Take the time to educate yourself so that you break the habits, associating looking better with feeling better about yourself, what you're doing and realise that some weeks you may not lose, but you shouldn't give up.

    Penny and I have lost 40lbs and 32lbs respectively and are continuing to do so. We eat healthier food now that is more varied than it's been for decades and it's just been a case of sticking to it, riding the weeks when you don't lose and rejoicing in the ones where you do.

    And it hasn't been a case of eating like rabbits either.

    Old habits certainly do die hard but I believe God can certainly help, you do have to decide to make the changes, however for some of us God gives us the strength or the courage or the will to do whatever task we are working on.
