Victory Over Raw Emotions

Thursday, December 03, 2015

Happy Holiday's everyone, emoticon I was sharing with Beth Donovan [Indygirl] that over Thanksgiving I felt like I lost control of my appetite and it made me feel like I was a sinking ship, my rudder was running a muck, I felt fearful because the scale showed me up 3.6 lbs and I felt hopeless knowing that I was still counting and measuring everything and yet I had a gain? I couldn't figure it out.. and it was a big gain! emoticon I was full of despair, fear, and hopelessness.. I kept telling myself it was those salted vinegar nuts [2 servings a day] that did me in.. emoticon [we had skipped the big dinner and didn't have all the side dishes; in fact, I made a diet friendly Hot Tamale pie! But, IBS or constipation (which ever doesn't offend your ears) I was really.. emoticon bloated? emoticon Anyway, I told myself not to give up but stay the course, that this too HAD to pass emoticon if I stayed faithful emoticon and it did, yesterday the scale emoticon went back down 3.8 lbs [so, two ounces MORE than my original weight and today I feel even skinnier [though I refuse to get on the scale today]! I want to focus more on renewing my mind Spiritually ..and to encourage myself and others.. which means Sparking and setting my sights on those things that lie before me. (Which is NOT that stupid scale, not today! LOL! I really don't like making my success be solely the numbers on that metal monster.. emoticon which it does become when you know your doing your best emoticon and yet it cheats you out of dropping weight.. tee-hee-hee!)

Anyway, how are you guys doing? are those numbers on the scale still dropping for you? I know it sure feels good when they go in the right direction! Anyway, praying for everyone to have God's Strength through the Holiday Season!

Here's a cartoon for the Season, hope it gives you a chuckle!

    Keep focusing on the important things (and the most important One) and everything else will fall into place in His time.

    emoticon So glad you did not let the number on the scale set you back. It is too easy to throw in the towel too easily and completely sabotage our efforts. Some foods especially play havoc with water retention--like your cartoon so correctly shows. I am sure others facing similar feelings so liked your blog in the hopes that it is shared.

    Have a great week. You can do this.

    Spiritual renewal is important and the mental part of this just as important. Glad you feel victory! Love the cartoon.

    Awesome post. Holidays are rough on a lot of people.
    And it's not just the scale it's often our pasts.
