Earlier this year I realized I had put on too much weight. I am 5’2 and weighed 143#. Well, I began to do the things that had always worked for me in the past: I ate less, I exercised and I fasted. Nothing was working! I tried longer. I tried harder. Nothing worked. I prayed. Nothing. I reminded God. Nothing. I prayed some more. I tried some more. Finally I was desperate. I CRIED OUT to God!!! I told Him that I wanted to lose weight in order to have a good testimony in the areas of temperance, self control and proper diet. I told Him I wanted to be attractive to my husband. I told him I wanted to take care of the body He entrusted to my use, and I told Him that if He wanted me to be fat I was willing. I think it was that week, someone walked up to me and handed me a book called the Miracle of Magnesium. It is not a book about losing weight. I read the book. I learned that if my magnesium is out of balance I can not lose weight. The book tells what foods contain magnesium: whole grains, nuts, beans, seeds and greens. I try to eat some of these every day now. The book also explains about things that deplete our magnesium. I try to avoid those more than I used to. The only other thing I am doing is not eating after 6 or at the latest 7 in the evening, with rare exceptions. I now weigh what I weighed when we married 25 years ago: 125#. Thank God! Isn’t He Wonderful!
