It's all in my head
Sunday, May 08, 2011
Well, I'm convinced of what was evident all throughout my decades of dieting, weight loss and gain-backs. It's all in my head.
Right now my head is in a good place and temptation can't gain any space there. Sometimes there's nothing but space in my head for temptation.
I ate at IHop twice in the last 4 days and was NOT TEMPTED IN THE LEAST to cheat, overeat, or binge on ANYTHING!!!!! I'm not bragging. Trouble is never that far away that I have time for bragging, but when I prayed for deliverance from my compulsion recently, I know that the Good Lord heard me and set my head straight. Then the body followed. Since then, I haven't had one moment of "I don't care, or "it doesn't matter," or "so what?" I'm just focused, and none of the aformentioned excuses have room to take root or grow. I've done a lot of clean-housework in my head recently, and a lot of the junk was thrown out. Good riddance.
I know that I only have today, so I'm relearning to take one day at a time, "for enough for the day are the cares thereof." Somewhere along the way I forgot how to do that. And by the way, it's never too late to stop in your tracks and turn the train around. Today is one of the days that I wish I could tie in a bow and unwrap every time I needed a refresher and I'm wishing that for all of my dear Spark friends. We all need each other in the good times and the bad. So God bless each one of you .
