For some reason I got lots of nuts for Christmas this year, way more than usual. I got lots of mixed nuts, almonds, peanuts, and hazel nuts. My major bhag this year is to loose weight. Right now I weigh more than I have for about 10 years, and I am determined to succeed in accomplishing my goal. My goal is to lose 40 lbs and get down to 188 lbs, which is what I weighed the day before we got married, 52 years ago. Nuts aren’t exactly low calorie but they do work in a Keto diet because they have no carbs.
One of the things that is going to be cool about heaven is that my glorified body won’t get fat. That means if Jesus comes back tonight I am forever done with diets, that will be so nice.
One of the things that I do each year is to pick one character trait that I focus on. This year it will be self-control. I will find as many Bible verses as I can on the character trait and memorize and meditate on them, I will buy a couple of books on self-control, I will listen to podcasts on how to grow stronger in self-control, and I will work at growing in this character trait in 2022. I know that becoming more self-controlled will not only help in my eating, or I should say, my not eating, but it will help in my speech, my thought life, my use of time, and a host of other area in my life.
I recommend the book “Bright Line Eating”. Good read and quick read. Especially if you skip the testimonial at the end of each chapter. I lost a good 35 lbs in like three or four months four years ago on this diet.

One of my goals is to drink more water. If you drink a glass of water before you eat anything it will help you lose weight and be good for you too.
