We all have struggles from time to time with emotional eating and self sabotage.  We want to make the right choices, but what drives us to choosing the wrong ones?  It is easy to fall back into old habits if you are not continuing in your growth and knowledge of healthier lifestyle choices.  Spend some time everyday keeping yourself developing in your knowledge of making healthy choices.  Spending time learning new healthy options may just be the best “Little Choice” you can make.

Look for ways to build up your spirit man on the inside.  Read books, exercise, read blog articles and magazines,  that will help you heal the relationship you have with food. It does not take a lot of time, even a few minutes a day.  Consistency will be the key.

I will list a few good choices below.

Made to Crave– Made to Crave is the missing link between a woman’s desire to be healthy and the spiritual empowerment necessary to make that happen. The reality is we were made to crave. Craving isn’t a bad thing. But we must realize God created us to crave more of him. Many of us have misplaced that craving by overindulging in physical pleasures instead of lasting spiritual satisfaction. If you are struggling with unhealthy eating habits, you can break the ‘I’ll start again Monday’ cycle, and start feeling good about yourself today. Learn to stop beating yourself up over the numbers on the scale. Discover that your weight loss struggle isn’t a curse but rather a blessing in the making, and replace justifications that lead to diet failure with empowering go-to scripts that lead to victory. You can reach your healthy weight goal — and grow closer to God in the process. This is not a how-to book. This is not the latest and greatest dieting plan. This book is the necessary companion for you to use alongside whatever healthy lifestyle plan you choose. This is a book and Bible study to help you find the ‘want to’ in making healthy lifestyle choices. (Click Here to Purchase).
