Have a plan, That plan can be as simple as starting a food journal and exercise as an accountability tool and a visual. Schedule your meals and exercise on a calendar just as you would other necessary daily tasks. This is part of purposing to do something “Daniel Purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s delicacies,…” Daniel 1:. This whole chapter is very inspiring and applicable to having a plan, following a plan and the reward of the obedience to sticking to a goal and a purpose that you believe in. Have faith and put that faith into practice. Sometimes we have to test that faith just as Daniel did, but as you can see and will see the testing is well worth the sacrifice no matter how hard it may seem or feel in the moment.
