So far today I am doing well. My sister and I have started a new way of eating and thinking that I hope will lend to success without having to obsessively monitor and focus on food. I’ll probably have more to say about that later once we determine whether or not it works or not.
For now, here are two things I’ve recently heard from friends. They have stuck with me and I hope they make sense to you as well.
- Now is the time: “I keep saying I’m going to start eating healthier after Thanksgiving or after Christmas but then I realized that it makes more sense to just start now knowing that I may indulge for those one or two days than it does to indulge every day up until then.” (Quote from a friend)
- Temptation to overeat can be an effective spiritual attack. A friend recently shared this from a book she read: “Adam and Eve were tempted with food. When Jesus was in the desert, Satan also tempted him with food.” What makes me think he wouldn’t use the same tactic with me? It definitely works to preoccupy my mind with things other than spiritual matters.
Like I said, not a whole lot to say. I have to get my typing fingers warmed up again as I hope to be writing a lot more soon.
Until then, eat well.
