I got through the night without eating. I've struggled with night time eating for a very long time. The last couple of days it has started to affect something in me. The disappointment I feel every morning when I awake, was making me feel like a failure. I would give myself a pep talk every night before bed saying, " I will NOT eat tonight, I CAN DO THIS!!!" Then wake up a failure every morning. It was beginning to take a toll. Because of my honesty and willingness to share where I am with others, I was given a suggestion by a fellow Sparker. She said to make a sign and put it on the door so when I get up it'll be the first thing I see. I had a open mind and went to the grocers and got a nice size box and wrote," STOP, DANGER, PRAYER CHANGES THINGS(Eat the word of GOD!), SPARK then a arrow pointing in the direction of my computer, Are YOU Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired?".
"Don't eat at night" is one of my SparkStreaks and I'm hoping to look back one day and say, "I've conquered that issue" but for now, I settle for ONE more night. One day, ONE step, and ONE pound at a time! Here's to another successful night!
Have A Sparktacular Day!!!
