Why is it so hard to change?

Why do I do the things I don't want to do? I know I'm not alone. The Apostle Paul said:

I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do. Romans 7)

I want to lose weight. I want to improve my health. I want to eat better. Instead....I continue to drink Pepsi. I don't exercise. I eat chocolate.

There's an old song that says:
You desire is the confirmation that the destination is there

I desire to make the changes. I really want the results. But I struggle with the daily steps necessary. Will it ever get easier? Or will I have this fight the rest of my life?

There's a new song by Rush of Fools called "Undo". It's where I feel I am....

I've been here before, now here I am again
Standing at the door, praying You'll let me back in......

Turn me around pick me up
Undo what I've become
Bring me back to the place
Of forgiveness and grace
I need You, need Your help
I can't do this myself
You're the only one who can undo
What I've become
