God gave me the choice between chicken fries or the nice grilled chicken salad and I chose the calorie and fat laden fries.

God is faithful and He does not want to see me fail so He will plan ahead a way for me to escape.

God will not allow the temptation to be more than I can stand and He will provide a way out.

God will show me a way out even if I think there is none. I'll have to keep my eyes opened to see and my hands free to grab it!

I will flee...

When I think back on a recent or past occasion in which I consumed an ill-sized portion or made an unhealthy food choice I can see that God did provide me ways out. Today when I was tempted to eat the chocolate pudding pie that a vendor brought in to the office I could have just not gone into the break room with my coworker and instead stayed in the office and eaten my lunch or another healthy snack I brought, and I knew that, but I went into the break room anyway and had a small piece of pie. I just said to myself "only a small piece won't hurt, I don't want to be rude and want to be able to eat with everyone else." But if I keep doing this I will never get where I need to be. I always would rather just eat whatever I want even when I know I shouldn't. :(

God is faithful...He is telling me that I should not be eating this by telling me to stay where I am and have a healthy snack instead. I need to listen!

God will not allow the temptation to be more than I can stand...Even though I REALLY want it, I have plenty of healthy food choices to eat and I bring food with me to work that is healthy, I need to eat it and not let it go to waste because all the junk food is not worth it and God gave me all the healthy stuff and the money to buy it for a good reason and He cares about me and knows that I can do this, it is not too much for me even if Satan is telling me that lie.

God will show me a way out...I always hear His voice and I know the next time I am tempted I will hear it again I just need to choose to listen, I don't have any reason to eat something that isn't beneficial to my health or my body, I just need to listen to His words and help.

I will flee..."God tells me not to, gives me a way out, and I can live without this. I am not going to eat it even if I feel extremely lonely, sad, anxious or had a panic attack today." That is what I need to remind myself and I think it will help me be able to flee a lot easier!! :) This book has given me a lot of good ideas to remind myself of, especially in this chapter as far as discipline in eating is concerned. :)

)Although I have been reading the book and getting a lot of good information on it, I have not been applying it to my life well. That is always my problem with EVERY self-help book or any book like this. So I have very recent episodes to choose from. Recently my husband left for the day and I stayed home - it's rare because he never does anything without me. I did well for the first part of the day and focused on getting things done without having anyone in my way, but then I got a little hungry and snacked all afternoon long. I figured why not, no one is here to stop me, judge me or even give me dirty looks. And since that doesn't happen often, I better enjoy it while I can. Truth is, I still had a lot to do. I could have eaten until I was satisfied and then gone back to work.

God is faithful...but I have to be willing to have open eyes to look for His faithfulness in each situation.

God will not allow the temptation to be more than I can stand...but I have to allow His strength to be used in each situation. He is kind and gentle; He makes His strength available, but never FORCES me to use it. I have to make that choice.

God will show me a way out...and I have to be faithful to look for it and fallow it.

I will flee...with action. I can't just think it through or have a good plan, I have to live out the things God has taught me or my faith in Him is incomplete.

Never mistake failure as final

Deciding what you want your life to be like is not hard. Deciding what you are willing to do and give up to get it, is the hard part.

I will do what I need to do in order to do what I want to do.

What you do and say is a reflection of who you are, so decide who you want to be and do it.

Thanks for the bible verses. I am trying to eat normally, and still lose about 20 pounds. Some days I eat nothing but junk all day long, then wonder why I feel so awful.

Again, thank you. With God's help, I will hopefully be able to lose the weight I want, and still recover from my disorder.

Thinking back on a recent or past occasion in which you consumed an ill-sized portion or made an unhealthy food choice, can you now see a way or ways out that God provided?

My most recent unhealthy food choice was choosing pizza for lunch on Monday. There was nothing about the pizza that I should have eaten. I am allergic to wheat, tomato, cheese, beef, yeast and corn. I had a slice of cheese and a sausage pizza. I also had biscuits and with butter and jelly for breakfast that morning and Tuesday morning, also something that I am allergic to. I have been getting away with eating these about once a week but this week, I ended up so sick I had to go home from work at lunch Tuesday and have had to stay home today. I did have a way out of this temptation because I took breakfast and lunch from home that I wasnít allergic to but when I let jealousy, stress and cravings get the best of me.

Looking ahead to the next time you will be tempted to eat too much or to make an unhealthy food choice, use the phrases from 1 Corinthians 10 below to describe how you will rely on God to help you.

God is faithful he will show me that there are more healthy foods than the ones I am allergic to.
God will not allow the temptation to be more than I can stand. He will give me strength when I donít think I have enough.
God will show me a way out when I feel like I want to eat foods I should not eat. He will show me foods that I can eat.
I will flee when tempted to eat food I should not eat. I will find foods that I am allowed to eat.

"We aren't to flee food. We need food. But we are to flee the control food can have over our lives. If we flee from the pattern of idolizing food and stop depending on food to make us feel emotionally better, we will be able to more clearly see the way our God promises to provide when we are tempted." 'Made to Crave,' page 159

Here is a biblical perspective on temptation from the apostle Paul:
"If you think you are standing strong, be careful not to fall. The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure. So, my dear friends, flee from the worship of idols." (1 Corinthians 10:12-14 NLT)

God is faithful...

God will not allow the temptation to be more than I can stand...

God will show me a way out...

I will flee...

I can do ALL things through Christ whom strengthens me.
