When you have a lot of weight to lose it can seem hard. Finding diet food you like and starting an exercise habit can be daunting. That’s why one helpful place to start is by using affirmations for weight loss. 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 came from 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.
Breaking Bad Patterns With Affirmations
Should Christians use daily affirmations? While there are some cautions, I believe yes.
God does not want you to stay stuck in unhealthy eating patterns. He longs for you to walk in victory, for you are more than a conqueror (Romans 8:37).
That doesn’t mean He will bring instant healing.
Mental work is involved plus a daily commitment to positive changes. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it.
Losing a lot of weight can seem overwhelming until you focus one step at a time.
Each moment, make the next right decision. Trust God and pray; He will give you the strength to overcome temptation when losing weight…or in any situation when you ask Him (1 Corinthians 10:13).
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 Biblical 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.
In Romans 12:1-2, Paul tells us to become transformed by the renewing of our minds.
That’s exactly what you are doing when you use Biblical affirmations to help you lose weight and focus on healthy habits.
Frame any weight loss affirmation statements in the positive.
State what you want to do, not what you are trying to avoid.
You are following Paul’s directive in Philippians 4 to think on things that are of good report when you do this. You are teaching your mind what is good and right and turning it from pitfalls and negatives.
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.

Victory in Christ is mine.

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.
