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 . emoticon

    Ah yes, take the good days and bottle them up, so when we hit a dip in the road...we will have less chance of regretting our actions.

    I'm actually grateful to have someone deliver my groceries. As it's those grocery store temptations that I don't deal with anymore. Makes life sooooo much easier!

    Thanks for a great blog. Sometimes I need reminding of the most obvious things. Sometimes I fall into the trap of thinking I have to do everything myself. I know that's know true. Why do I keep falling into that???? All I need to do it pray about ALL things.

    Thanks, again,

    Hi Patty, You are so positive and focused on eating healthy--it helps motivate me to do the same. I'm really tired of all the excuses I give myself to overeat and not exercise--hence I'm a very long way from where I want and need to be. I need to adjust my mindset as no one can do it for me but me!

    emoticon Good for you! I actually find IHop a decent place for eating out because they have calories on their "healthy" items. Best wishes to you.
