#transformationtuesday Meet Travis Weber And His Awesome Transformation!

#transformationtuesday Meet Travis Weber And His Awesome Transformation!

I know Travis personally. Travis is a hard working guy. I am pleased to share his story with you. I hope it inspires you as much as it inspires me.

 

 I had always been overweight, but it never really bothered me until my early teenage years. I can recall the time when I began to think, “You know, I don’t have to be like this.” I vividly remember stepping on the scale at 16 years old and seeing 230 pounds and thinking “This HAS to stop now!” I began by making small changes in what and how much I was eating, and I began to see results! Justin has been an incredible inspiration to me in many ways, and I have been blessed to know him personally and call him friend. He has been an example of what hard work and perseverance can accomplish. He has been some one I can go to for advice in training or in nutrition, but most importantly he has been a supporter! He is someone I can count on for encouragement and accountability. Every time I walk into the gym and see him there he has a way of making that workout seem a little less terrible. Thank you Justin for being there ONE STEP at a time!

Check out Travis before and after. The bottom picture is Travis on the right hand side in the orange. Now it’s your turn. Will you be the next TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY? It all starts with taking ONE STEP!

#transformationtuesday C.A.S.T Your Cares Upon The Lord

#transformationtuesday C.A.S.T Your Cares Upon The Lord

Check out this message I shared at church this weekend.

 

Colossians 4:2 Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.

1 Thessalonians 5:17 pray continually

Prayer is to be a DAILY and REGULAR part of our lifestyle.

1Peter 5:7 Cast all your cares on him because he cares for you.

Psalm 55:22 Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.

C – CONFESSION – Confessing your sins to the Lord and confessing the promises of God over your life.

A – ASK… making our REQUESTS to God.

James 4:1-2  What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? 2 You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.

1. We are commanded to present our REQUESTS to God in EVERY situation with a promise ofPEACE.

Philippians 4:6-7 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

2. We are directed to pray to the FATHER in Jesus Name with a guarantee/promise of an ANSWER  and Joy.

John 16:23-24 23 In that day you will no longer ask me anything. Very truly I tell you, my Father will giveyou whatever you ask in my name. 24 Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.

A. We pray to the FATHER.

B. In JESUS Name.

C. A GUARANTEED answer. There are three answers: YES, NO, and WAIT.

1John 5:14-15  14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us—whatever we askwe know that we have what we asked of him.

D. A promise of JOY.

EVERYDAY, Get alone with God and spend time CONFESSING and ASKING.

#scripturesunday You’re Not Who You Use To Be!

We sometimes identify ourselves as our mistakes or failures. For the one who has give themselves to Jesus, we can have a new clean start. We don’t have to be that person anymore. WE ARE A NEW CREATION!

2 Corinthians 5:17 “This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”

Upcoming E-book Q&A (Food Consumed Me: How I Overcame Food Addiction)

Upcoming E-book Q&A (Food Consumed Me: How I Overcame Food Addiction)

So I’ve come to realize that people have questions about my upcoming e-book. I’m here to answer those questions for you. This is what you can expect from the upcoming e-book “Food Consumed Me: How I Overcame Food Addiction.”

Question: Why did you write this e-book?

Answer: I wrote this e-book with a vision in mind. I know I will not be able to talk to thousands of people in ONE day. I want to personally talk to people who are struggling with food addiction. To make that a reality, I decided to write an e-book geared towards that subject. I wrote this book to communicate the reality of food addiction. The reality is.. it’s killing us. It’s giving us a bad quality of life. It’s robbing us from becoming the best versions of ourselves that we can be. We weren’t created to go to food as a crutch. We were created for more than that.

Question: What can we expect from this e-book?

Answer: You can expect my heart. You can expect me to share my personal journey with battling food addiction. I want my readers to take a journey with me to see where I’ve been, and how I’ve overcome it. You can expect to find the answers you have been looking for. Some of them you may have already heard, and some that, if applied, could change your life forever.

Question: Will this work for me?

Answer: This has the potential to change you, the reader. It has potential to help you take charge of life again. If you apply what you read, you can be a different person. You can overcome the addiction and start new again. You don’t have to be that person that’s battling food addiction day in and day out. You can be the person who looks at food, and takes ownershiJunkaddictionp over it.

Question: Anything else?

Answer: My heart is to help. Again, I am not the answer. But I point you to the answer. I want my readers to start the ONE STEP journey with me. The process may be overwhelming at the start, but it will be well worth it. It just comes down to us following through with our commitments. I encourage you, love yourself enough to make a change. Don’t hurt yourself any longer. Food can be destructive. A life of destruction will end in destruction. Let’s do this. It all starts with ONE STEP.

My e-book will be available on July 15th. It has the potential to change your life. If it worked for me it can work for you. Let me help you.

#transformationtuesday (Here’s How You Can Transform Your Body!)

#transformationtuesday (Here’s How You Can Transform Your Body!)

Transformation Tuesday is probably my favorite day of the week. I love reading about the stories of people who once had an obstacle in front of them, to people who have overcome those obstacles. Some of us look at those stories and we think, “why not me?” I want to encourage you. It can be you! You just have to take the step to do be transformed. How awesome would it be to see yourself featured on one of my Transformation Tuesday blogs? You can be the example to inspire many people to become healthier, and to overcome obstacles. It just takes YOU making ONE STEP to better yourself.

I want to share some FREE advice on how to TRANSFORM YOUR BODY!

1. Make up your mind. – CHOOSE IT! If you don’t choose to be overcome, then it just won’t happen. You can’t start something with a half-hearted approach and believe you will come out on top. That isn’t how it works. If I wasn’t serious about losing weight, I never would have done it. I had a HUGE obstacle to face. 799lbs was not an easy weight to overcome. Discouragement? YES! Frustration, YES! There was a constant battle going on in my mind. I wanted to give up at times, but I KNEW that I couldn’t. I wouldn’t! I had to overcome this. So I did. I am thankful to God that He helped me through that.

2. Be the example others look at. – Just overcoming weight issues or obstacles for yourself is nice, but how much better to do it for others? How many others are in our shoes? How many others need someone to lead them, encourage them, inspire them? You could be that person. Don’t rob the world of who YOU ARE and what YOU CAN DO. You will not believe the feeling of being looked at as an example. I stay humble. My answer? I am just an instrument pointing to  The One who helped me through this. I’m not the answer, but I am used to show you the answer.

I hope this helps. I am excited to see more Transformation Tuesday stories. You can be the next person to inspire many. I am praying that my readers will take that to heart.
