I was reading this morning and this touched my soul.
When I stopped living in the problem and began living in the answer, the problem went away. From that moment on I have not had a single compulsion to overeat. And acceptance is the answer to all my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing, or situation---some fact of my life unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing, or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment. Nothing, absolutely nothing happens in God's world by mistake. Until I could accept my compulsive overeating I could not stay abstinence unless I accept life completely on life's terms. I cannot be happy. I need to concentrate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world as on what needs to be changed in me and in my attitudes.
To this day, I am amazed at how many of my problems, most of which had nothing to do with my fat, have become manageable or have simply disappeared since I quit overeating.
You know reading the book this morning really touched me. I want to incorporate this into my life and live it. I know my mind is so clear and I am optimistic about everything when I am eating healthy and exercising. Why I keep overeating I do not know. I feel so bad when I do and I fill so good when I do not. Oh well, its getting better every week. I may mess up a couple of days or even a couple of weeks but I get right back on and I'm doing that sooner and sooner and I am always hopeful I will reach a point where I have no desire to overeat. That there is no problem that stuffing myself will fix so why not go for a walk, read a good book , hey I know do a blog, or encourage someone else, get my mind off of me. Yeah, I love Spark people.

This is what I read this morning. I wanted to share.
With maturity comes the courage and ability to slow the hectic pace of life.
The wise know that a journey is meaningless without occasionally stopping to enjoy the view.
Find something today that stops you in your busy life and look, enjoy, be thankful, take a deep breath and see if your day is better.
Everything serves to further.
The situation is unequivocal. Inner detachment has become an established fact, and we are at liberty to depart. When one sees the way ahead thus clearly, free of all doubt, a cheerful mood sets in, and one chooses what is right without further thought. Such a clear path ahead always leads to the good. Hummmmmmm

When you lock lips, there is a physical reaction that includes an increased heart rate from around 70 to 120 beats per minute. The salivary gland gushes and endorphins and oxytocin ae released making you feel happy...so pucker up!
Children are a great comfort in your old age-and they help you reach it faster, too.
Cats are smarter than dogs. You can't get eight cats to pull a sled through snow.

Totally absorb energy in food the food must be appreciated, savored. Taste is the doorway. You must appreciate taste. This is the reason for prayer before eating. It is not just about being thankful, it is to make eating a holy experience, so the energy from the food can enter your body. I was looking over some of my papers and found this. I do not know where it is from but it was interesting. I suppose if we were really aware of what we put in our mouth we would think twice. I think we are in too big of a hurry sometimes and just through down anything. We really don't know whether it was good or not. I'm going to make an effort to slow down and realize what I am eating. Try to have a spiritual connection to the food. I'm sorry that sounds so funny!! I'm going to be serious now. Ha. I really do better when I take time to prepare food, sit down with a nice plate and glass and take my time, have nice conversation, etc. Life is a trip. Isn't it folks.
