Your habits will always defeat your willpower (170.8)

First, Merry Christmas to all!

Second, that's 4 pounds of bonified cookie weight. Ahh, the holidays.

Third, I just finished running 10 miles. Woot!

I wanted to quickly post this before it got away from me. I'm listening to an online sermon from Menlo Park Presbyterian Church in California (by John Ortberg). The sermon is about healing.

A key point from the sermon is: your will habits will always defeat your willpower. You might be able to overcome your habits for an hour or a day or a week, but ultimately your habits will win.

Your only hope is for a new set of habits.

Wow. This is so incredibly huge for weight loss and fitness. I will be noodling on this and keeping it in the front if my mind as I go into the new year.

That is really powerful stuff. Thanks for sharing! I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas (I'm so over the pie now it's not even funny.)

I loved your post today! Merry Christmas to you and your family. I hope you all had a wonderful break full of time spent with family. The nice thing about the weight gained in such a short time is that if you go back to your good habits, you will loose the weight equally fast again. Lily
