We’ve been dieting for years; in fact, my spreadsheet starts in March of 2008. There have been ups and downs but in the almost 8 years, and I’m slightly up from the March weight. That means 8 years of dieting with no results. All that going without, dieting on vacations, and buying all kinds of diet foods: all to be up a couple of pounds in 8 years. At least it’s only a couple. Perhaps it sounds familiar. So what’s different this year? First, we have a different diet, which is a little more balanced. (More info on that later. We want to give it some time.) Second, we have more understanding on the grace of God to overcome our weakness. Dieting will quickly reveal weaknesses. Third, we sense more urgency to get the weight off. Fourth, we have been transforming our minds through the renewing of the Word.
