What is perspective?
According to my dictionary it is defined as ‘a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view.’
So…if we go into an activity – anything with a negative attitude or negative viewpoint, it makes the activity less enjoyable. Including eating.
Perspective is how we view food as well. Some people live to eat and some people eat to live. Some people feel guilty after eating a lot and some people feel pleasure. Some people live in their problems and some live in their solutions. Some people are obsessed with food, while others forget to eat. We all think so differently. We all have so many different beautiful character flaws. Did you notice I said ‘beautiful?’ We are all worth it. You guys are the reason I get up, to share my passion with you all! I love helping and learning. What makes you get out of bed in the morning?
We are looking for 15 people who are ready make a change to a healthier, happier, more confident, slimmer lifestyle! If you want to commit to making a change, check out our Summer Slim down Challenge. I know you guys don’t feel motivated all the time. I sure don’t!!!! It’s okay to feel unmotivated at times. But the key here is-when you are in a low point in your life, what is God trying to teach you? He NEVER wastes moments or pain and he knows exactly what you are going through. There is a lesson he is trying to teach you.

If you want something bad enough, try this exercise out. Change your perspective on the same issue you have.
Example-you overeat. You feel like you failed yourself or me for not ‘following your goals’ and you immediately feel a sense of guilt. Sometimes we dwell on that guilt and start to believe the lie that we will ‘never change’ and failure is just who you are.
We can overeat. Tell ourselves “Yes I overate probably more than I should of, but food no longer controls me. I will make a better choice for the next MEAL and I will start to build better habits for myself. Just because I messed up doesn’t mean I am a failure.”
Another quick example
Someone is offering you junk food/junk food is around…
You can either tell yourself ‘I shouldn’t be eating that, I am trying to watch what I eat and I wish I could..” You feel deprived and reminded that you have weight to lose.
You can tell yourself the truth; “I can eat that food at another point in my life, but right now I don’t want to. It’s ok, food doesn’t control me.” You feel in control and like you aren’t missing out on anything.
