Where are you willing to go?

"God doesn't care nearly as much about where you have been as He does about where you are and, with His help, where you are willing to go."

  1. Feeling pretty discouraged about lack of weight loss also. Decided February would be no treat month and that I would work on self mastery and self discipline. Elder Russel M. Nelson said in the January 2014 Ensign "A pivotal spiritual attribute is that of self-mastery—the strength to place reason over appetite. Self-mastery builds a strong conscience. And your conscience determines your moral responses in difficult, tempting, and trying situations. Fasting helps your spirit to develop dominance over your physical appetites. Fasting also increases your access to heaven’s help, as it intensifies your prayers. Why the need for self-mastery? God implanted strong appetites within us for nourishment and love, vital for the human family to be perpetuated. When we master our appetites within the bounds of God’s laws, we can enjoy longer life, greater love, and consummate joy." Hang in there. xoxo
