I am not a nutritionist, I am not a personal trainer, I am a woman of faith. I believe in Christ. I believe in His love, I believe that through Him, all things are possible. I believe that I was given two gifts upon arriving on earth. One was a physical body, the other, the agency to choose. I believe that I do have a choice on how I care for my first gift, that of a physical body. I believe that it was and still is impossible on my own to do it right. I know that Jesus carries me through to my goal of making my physical body healthier, He teaches and prompts through the power of the Holy Ghost. I know that He hears me. I know He is my friend. I know that God is "no respecter of persons" I know that the same help that is available to me is available to everyone. Today, go for a walk, throw out your junk food, eat correct portions. Ask Him for strength, ask Him to teach you, expect miracles and then rejoice when they happen.
"It goes without saying that negative speaking so often flows from negative thinking, including negative thinking about ourselves. We see our own faults, we speak - or at least think- critically of ourselves, and before long that is how we see everyone and everything. No sunshine, no roses, no promise of hope or happiness. Before long, we and everybody around us are miserable." (Elder Holland)
"The spirit of the gospel is optimistic; it trusts in God and looks on the bright side of things. The opposite or pessimistic spirit drags men down and away from God, looks on the dark side, murmurs, complains, and is slow to yield obedience." We should
honor the Savior's declaration to "be of good cheer"...Speak hopefully. Speak encouragingly, including about yourself. Try not to complain and moan incessantly. As someone once said, "Even in the golden age of civilization someone undoubtedly grumbled that everything looked too yellow." -(Elder Orson F. Whitney as quoted by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland in April 2007 general conference)
