Your Spark friend Polly.

Sometimes I can feel depleted and when I do I find hope in this verse I am sharing with you.

Isaiah 40:31

But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

This reminded me of you:

We become what we want to be by consistently being what we want to become each day.

I have a number of food pushers in my life and in the past I would allow them to derail me. We have to stand firm and it sounds like your determined. emoticon

Kudos for you! I have reduced my sweets , but not planning at this time to completely quit. I think I am addicted to sugar for sure. I tried a few times to completely give it up , but would end up binging . This time I am slowly cutting down. I don't consume near as much as I use too. I know people that has been successful at going cold turkey and they have lost a lot of weight at a pretty steady pace.

Over the years I have read a lot of conflicting advice . First I was doing your program then I read water with your meals hurts digestion. Just taking a little sip of water with meals did seem to help my food digest better , but then I am not getting enough water in and feel dehydrated sometimes. At the moment I need to up my water again.

This week I am reading in the Clean Eating section of book. Making progress as I go.

I started my food log in the notebook I bought yesterday. I jot down how I am feeling before I eat and after so that way I can figure out which foods agree with me more. Sometimes we are not really hungry so if I ask myself and the answer is not really then I drink water because maybe I am confusing thirst with hunger.

I use a imaginary scale from 0-10. I try not to go to 0 before I eat because if I am that hungry I will over eat. So I eat when at about 3. I try to practice stopping before a 10 because that is over full so when I think I have reached a 7, I stop.

The chapter that was the most impactful for me was am I sad. Am I mad. Do I feel bad. Never really associated myself as an emotional eater until I started self examination

Last night I read the 4 questions. So I am moving alone in the book.

Today I went shopping for some notebooks so I can start writing what I eat down.

I am doing the Morning Pages and I find it a very helpful practice.

I also keep a review and planning book that I write in every night. I ask myself...What worked? What I was not happy with and how could I of handled it better?

I have been able to continue to do Morning Pages which keeps giving me insight after insight.

A flare-up of a chronic illness and a family emergency stopped me yesterday from doing anything. I have cleaned up loose ends today and am ready to journal this evening at dinner. I plan on getting back to the full routine tomorrow.

I have been able to prevent any full-on binge eating episodes this week despite a patchy practice. :)

Never really self examined myself to this depth on a daily basis. A lot of self revelation and hidden dark places. As I am observing my son in his first real relationship I see he is so much like his father. It scares me for her and I see her tears and pain as I have covered mine up for so long. I write a letter to her which is my younger self as I journal and I verbalize to her what his father did to me so she is aware that this is a dangerous relationship without making it about them

I have started reading "Eating with Fierce Kindness" by Sasha T. Loring. Mindful compassion seems to be the most effective approach to amending my disordered eating habits.
