I need your help, Lord. I’ve struggled my whole life with weight

I need your help, Lord. I’ve struggled my whole life with weight. I hate the way I feel when I’m overweight. I can’t sleep well, I can’t move well,I look horrible in and out of my clothes. I’m so ashamed of how I allowed this.

You remember that once, when I was 210 pounds, I found a 45 day challenge, it was God based. I dedicated 45 days and it changed the way I look at weight gain and loss. It made me see myself. I only lost 1 pound in that 45 days but I learned so much. It had a lasting impact on my life. I had never thought to ask my God to help me. I didn’t even care that I had lost only 1 pound because I had gained so much knowledge throughout the experience. Today, I’m not 210 pounds. I was able to get down to a comfortable and nice 162 pounds. I look proportioned and my clothes hang nicely on me. I don’t have to keep tugging and pulling down shirts or adjusting pants around my waist. At least I didn’t have to… now, I have gained 20 pounds 🙁
I’m not back to the 210 pounds, but now, at 182 pounds, I’m on my way to uncomfortable. It’s getting hard to hide the extra pounds under my clothes. I have got to take control. I have got to get back on track and do this God’s way.

I started to derail, to slack and I’m sorry, Lord. I need your help. Please hear my prayer and guide me. I am a strong person, but I am bad about slowly easing back into bad ways with the,”Oh, this little bit won’t hurt, I’ll just go on a diet Monday,” attitude. I need you, Jesus and I won’t be comfortable in my own skin until I follow you. I need you.

Please hear my prayer and give me guidance and comfort.I love, love, love you.
