Reshaping it All - Day 9

Reshaping it All - Day 9

by Darlene Schacht

We're on to day 10, and I'm already starting to see a change in my skin. Yesterday I was about to put on makeup, when I decided that I looked pretty good! I wanted to enjoy the glow that I'm starting to see. What a difference eating healthy makes. It's been nine days, and I'm already starting to see and feel a change!

Losing weight is one thing, but if you want to achieve a healthy glow like Candace has, then we have to stop treating our bodies like trash cans, and treat them like the holy temple they were created to be.

Moving on to chapter three today we get a background view of Candace's eating habits. By the way she was raised, she'd come to believe that food was one of two things: healthy and tasteless, or unhealthy and delicious.

In Reshaping it All, we learn that there is a better alternative, which is delicious food that works to benefit our bodies. I've definitely been experiencing that this past week and my body is thanking me for it!!!

With a deeper understanding of what works to benefit our bodies, we increase our chance of success.

Healthy food is not the enemy, and neither are treats. When we teach our body to enjoy food in moderation while seeking a balanced diet that includes both fruit and vegetables, we are building a lifestyle change rather than seeking a quick fix.

In laying this foundation of good eating habits, I'm reminded of Matthew 7:24-25:
Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.
