I thought I had my stress level licked. Well, I didn't after, 2 months of not eating potato chips, I did it. I even went to the gas station where they are there and didn't even feel like I wanted them, but by the time I got to pay, I did it, walked over to them, got 2 bags and left. On the way home, I said, God why didn't you stop me. You should have tripped me or something. Well, I felt in my spirit, I heard that He gave me free will and choice. Well, I still have part of one and the second one. As I started eating them, i didn't have that same craving and eat the whole bag. I guess He showed me I could stop. Now I need to try to handle my stress another way. Maybe I will read my Bible and pray and leave the cravings to Satan.
Blessings to everyone. Please Pray for me. I do need help.

    I blew it today too potato chips dip AND cake so I really blew it. We can get back with it. I highly recommend a devotional called Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. Using scripture she writes as if Jesus were talking to you. For example part of yesterdays said " Do not be surprised by firey attacks on your mind. When you struggle to find Me and and live in MY peace don't let discouragement set in" It went on to talk about how we just need to spend more time in HIS presence to gain strength and peace. It is a wonderful daily devotional.
    Remember as Paul said " I can do all things through him who strengthens me" PHIL 4 :13

    Hi JOan,
    I'm just joining the Diabetes team today and I had Satan tempt me the same way, with the salty chips, but I can't say that I've been off them for a couple months like you. So remember how far you've come and don't let this one little slip trip you up.
