Becoming Less...Diets

OH mercy! Sorry this is so late. I haven't had time to sit at my computer & type!
Working full time is killing me! I know I know...sad huh?
Get over it right? Ho hum.

I stayed the same this week. NOthing new.

Chapter 16 in Made to Crave=Diets

This week I would like to focus on Diets or the lack there of...
Notice how DIET is a four letter word? Why yes it is Steph.
Does that make it a naughty word? Maybe.

I have done all types of diets...really I have. It's reDONKulous as my
girls say. Are you ready for this...yes...I have even taken diet pills.
The shame. I hate even admitting that to anyone...much less put it on
my blog. But I said it & it's out there now.

Infact...thru this I have had weak moments where I have been tempted
to run back to them. Run back to being held captive instead of being
set free from the love of food. It's an easy way for me to give up & give
in. I think...so many people do it...it's ok. It's really not though, not for me.
Because I am not being obedient when I take them.
Can you say "Rationalize??"

I get tired of sacrificing & my self efforts wear thin. "We aren't to flee food.
But we are to flee the control food can have on our lives." MDC
I am not on a diet..I am on a journey of obedience with God. This is a life long
journey that he is leading me on.

So I'm not saying...Steph you are on a diet...because diets stink & I fail at them.
It's a life style change...seeking to obey.

I really am asking for prayer this week. This week is Teacher Appreciation week
at my school & there will be LOADS of food coming every day. Yummy, gooey,
sweet things that will be calling my name. It was a very stressful week last week at
school & I felt myself seeking comfort in food. I am seriously asking for you to pray
for me this week as I resist the temptation to seek food for a stress relief & comfort.

He must become greater...I must become less. John 3:30

  1. Praying for you! I think once you say no enough times, it gets a little easier, sometimes :) I agree, no diets! We are on a journey to full obedience in Christ!
