When I began my weight loss journey, I knew I would never find success in overcoming my eating problems without relying on God’s strength and healing. For years I begged God to heal me of my eating addictions, yet I stayed stuck in unhealthy patterns.
When I ultimately lost 100 pounds, the difference was finding a therapy program that worked for me, and even more important, changing my core believes about who I am in Christ Jesus. These 7 Christian weight loss affirmations and Bible verses were an important part of my transformation.
God does not want you to stay stuck in unhealthy eating patterns. That doesn’t mean He will bring instant healing. Mental work is involved, plus a daily commitment to positive changes.
During the years I was in the process of losing weight, at times I was angry at God for not healing me on my time-line. I wanted to be better and I wanted it now.
Yet God uses all types of life experiences to change and mold us, all within His time frame.
Each of these affirmations was vital to my weight loss success. The way I think and speak to myself has changed dramatically.
My hope and prayer for you is that you, too, will experience the joy and peace of relying on God as the source of strength for your weight loss.
Why Christian Weight Loss Affirmations?
Affirmations are positive statements we say to ourselves as we reach toward a goal. Written affirmations, used daily, are helpful when changing your negative thinking patterns.
Frame any weight loss affirmation statements in the positive. State what you want to do, not what you are trying to avoid.
Why specifically Christian weight loss affirmations? Many typical positive weight loss affirmations are geared toward self-esteem. There can be benefit to these. (You are amazing as a creation of God!) Still, overall the focus is on you and your ability to do the work.
As Christians, we have a whole new perspective. Life is not about how good you are – it’s about how good God is.
I encourage you to use these 7 Christian weight loss affirmations for your journey.

7 Christian Weight Loss Affirmations
Victory in Christ is mine.
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
I make good choices.
So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
I Corinthians 10:31
Each day is a new start.
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
God gives me strength to overcome temptation.
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.
I remove temptation or I remove myself from the situation.
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
I Corinthians 10:13
Boundaries give me freedom.
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
2 Corinthians 3:17
I am a beautiful daughter of the King.
All glorious is the princess in her chamber, with robes interwoven with gold.
