Christina’s Day 44… Finding the Ideal Body Weight

Focusing on weight is one for me – I have been trying to stay focused, committed and disciplined in creating new habits in my life to support a weight I can live with and he happy.In today’s study Donna Partow talks about finding that “ideal weight” and how you can take an easier look at finding out what that is.  The concept of not letting your weight control your clothing size is a great concept!  Her way is to let your ideal clothing size control your weight!

Weight is something everyone struggles with…

This is not just a super model’s problem or the woman on the hunt for a man’s problem it is most people’s problem.  It is ok to stop and admit I need to loose a little weight (or a lot of weight).  It is setting into motion the practices that will help you achieve it, this is where I fall short.  I can start out like gang busters and for some reason I “fall off the wagon” and it takes me forever to get back up!  I know what I need to do.  I know how to do it.  I know the things to get to do it. So why do I not?  I know it has something to do with Spiritual Warefare – when I am working out, eating like I should and start loosing weight I turn and am smacked with something that tells me “You can not go today”  “You are too tired to go, just rest for the day” or “Hey this is a major thing you have to take care of this before you take care of you” – that last whisper gets me EVERY TIME!

My weight is important to me…

So why can’t I stick to it?  I give in to those whispers from Satan that in turn knock me down. Today I want to take my weight challenge to God – he is my trainer and I will let him shut the door on Satan.  Acknowledging, I am being attacked in my spirit center is key – here you go Jesus – I am ready to begin training again!

My ideal weight…

We were challenged today to find our ideal weight and look up our BMI index. I found the website: www.nhibisupport.com/bmi – it was interesting to find my current BMI is 26.4  that is considered over-weight.  I need to be between 18 and 24.9  (107-138 lbs)

The weight goal I have is 130 – that gives me 19 pounds to loose.  A doable goal? YES  I want to start today looking at the first 5 pounds and have my first rung goal to make a weight of 144 lbs – how long will it take me to reach this weight?  I am not sure all I can say is that is my first goal…


  1. Definitely a do-able goal! I can be your cheerleader. 🙂 It is easy to get off track – I fell off the exercise wagon over the Christmas holiday season. How’s it going with the rebounder?

  2. Really liked what you had to say in your post, Christina’s Day 44… Finding the Ideal Body Weight | Sisters Joined in Faith, thanks for the good read!
