Day Thirty: Weight Loss God’s Way


In our last WOD (workout of the day) together…let’s do HAPPY!

But first let’s talk about happiness.

The world is consumed by the pursuit of happiness. We try a little bit of this and a little bit of that hoping to GET happy. “You deserve to be happy”….oh what a dangerous saying. In the echoes of that statement marriages implode, careers get trashed, and bodies go under the knife.

Solomon was the wisest and richest man to ever live. He went on the ultimate pursuit of happiness; sex, wine, food, money, knowledge, and power were all his for the taking. And in the end he found it all empty and lacking. Sound familiar to your fitness pursuits?

Day Twenty Five: Weight Loss God’s Way But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law.  Galatians 5:21-22 The Gospels often talk about fruit…fruit that our lives will produce when we are living lives in Christ.

Day Twenty Four: Weight Loss God’s Way


You did some heavy lifting yesterday! Well done. Taking your stand against fear and fighting the good fight of faith can be exhausting.

I think God appreciates an exhausted foot-soldier. (Not all the time, but from time to time.) It’s evidence that you stood your ground wearing the full armor of God. And like every good captain, he is required to pull exhausted soldiers out of battle who have been on the front-line for too long. Some rest and recovery time is in order.

Day Seventeen: Weight Loss God’s Way

Okay. Confession time. How many times are you stepping on and off the scale each day? In our second training session I asked you to put the scale away. Why? Because most of us have allowed the scale to be our God who gets the final say on our worth.

This made me laugh. You see, I have not once stepped on the scale since I started Alisa’s programme. Not once – except for today. I can feel I’ve lost a bit of weight, and so I thought, “why not?” And I have – I’ve lost about 2.5 pounds, but that’s not really the point though, is it? It’s about being healthy… read further to see what Alisa says.

Day Sixteen: Weight Loss God’s Way


Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked. Psalm 84:10

Today’s Workout Of The Day (WOD) is for everyone! Good news! It’s only seven minutes long!

“That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9

This verse has always excited me – it is filled with such promise and such hope, and such love from God to us, if only we would (could) trust the process, trust him. Guess that’s why my word for 2015 is trust.

We can’t trust what we see. We can’t trust what we hear. We can’t even trust our own thoughts. It’s not like God is playing a trick on us or something. In fact, it’s his way of helping us take a load off.



We have been training together for almost two weeks! How are you doing? You have gone to work with God in setting up a new foundation in which to build this time. And to think…we barely even talked about physical exercise or food. Great job! I know you are probably anxious about some things, but remember…you said you would trust the process. Thank you for staying true to your promise.

Let’s review your part so far:

You stepped on the scale (maybe) one last time, and you have not weighed yourself since.
