Lesson 1 – Living StressFree in a Stressful World

​Stress is the main roadblock to weight loss. We think food and desire for it is the roadblock, but the roadblock is what is behind our desire for food.

We know that food won’t solve all our problems, but in the moment we think if we could just stop worrying about this or if we could just peace about it the world or our lives, friends or family members would be ok. We anesthetize our pain which we feel because of stress by eating anything we want.

​Answer the following questions:

Why do I want that particular food?

What do I think it is doing for me?

Why do I think food will solve my problem?

How do I stop overeating when I feel stress?

What stressors are you carrying with you? List those.

When you handed them to Jesus, what did He give you in exchange for each of these. List those beside what you gave to Him.

List what stresses you and where are you when that happens?

What foods do you eat when you are stressed? Where do you eat them?

What is something you could do instead? 

Make this your emergency stop-start. List that here.
