Physical and Spiritual Fitness

I believe it’s important to realize that weight loss, and maintaining a healthy weight while not getting to said size in an unhealthy manner is critical.

Hi, I’m Hannah and 32 as of this past Sept. 2025. (Waves)
This blog is a Christian (not in name only) focused one.
The Lord is King over all, and that includes over this body He has fashioned together skillfully.
Background of myself: I am healed from a few issues that controlled my life for a long time. The first was Anorexia coupled with diet pill upper abuse. (legal yes ephedrine over the counter but still abusing my body)
Around highschool age (16, fitting that it’s now 16 years later that I’ve come full circle) I joined weight watchers back in 2001-2002, but for the wrong reasons. I didn’t know it at the time, but I have High Functioning Autism (then known as asperger’s)
Went away to college after an awful 12th grade year, graduated with honers but didn’t really register what was going on around me.
Dizzy spells were common (by college I was counting calories less then 1000 a day for my 5’8″ frame and overexercising, ephedrine abuse to top all that off)
I didn’t think much wrong, until the bottom dropped out around November of my first year away…I started cutting myself and there after struggled with cutting for about 9 years…
Fast Forward I was dismissed from the school with a 3.0 GPA despite all I was putting myself and others through…
About nine years later I was struggling with overeating and massive cutting…it got really awful, still I feel bad but realize that isn’t who I am any longer…
I went away to get some tools and healing for the issues mainly the cutting and here I am two years later self harm free and stable…only thanks to God, to those who came alongside me to help me, and gritting my way through the issue to the other side…
Almost two and a half years later, to God be all the glory for serious he is so good…
While I was away in treatment, the food was in a kitchen, and I only got down to about 232 or so after seven months away from home…other girls got down to 190’ish who were around my height (they were not on as many meds) I was working out 5 days a week (we all did)
Home again, working out more but the weight crept back up, now I’m around 256, last year 240s, year before 230’s…
In a nutshell I was going to get gastric surgery done, but decided against it because I wanted to give WW a shot again (this time for the right reasons)
I have figured if by January next year if I’m not at least in the 230’s I’ll look at getting a gastric sleeve but I have nothing to lose…I’ve also switched up my anti depressant to one that is weight neutral, the one I was on before was weight resistant meaning it hindered weight loss)
I was in the 260’s and now have dropped and leveled but inch wise have lost a lot…I’m attempting to be patient with myself and my body…
I have a lot to celebrate and be thankful for…I would have been dead had it not been for the Lord, and for obeying Him…
Each post, and about every two weeks or so that I go to the gym (I’ve started going about 3-4 times a week again) I will post a verse that is convicting and in some way relates to spiritual fitness as well as physical fitness…
I leave you with the following verse:
Therefore I do not run uncertainly (without definite aim). I do not box like one beating the air and striking without an adversary. 1 Corinthians 9:26
Standard
