sweets day 3

Monday, June 10, 2013

Yesterday I ate fresh pineapple and no sweets. I did go over on the fats so I will need to work on that. I am feeling tired from no sweets but that is to be expected because of sugar withdrawl. my mom ended up caving on her no sweets but I am still keeping strong with it. I am feeling really good about how I am doing so far and will be doing the week two actions steps on the tame the sweets challenge. I do know the longer I do it the better it will be. even by making small changes that adds up not only in the way of weight loss but also better eating habits.

    Good for you - once you break the back of the addiction, it will get easier - I really enjoy pineapple as it is sweet without artificial or added sugars.

my first sweets break through

Sunday, June 09, 2013

Last night my step- grandma knew my mom and I were both giving up sweets we even told her that neither one of us can eat sweets. We told her we were starting this yesterday. She comes over with coconut cream pie , well my mom and I didn't eat it and left it in the refrigerator. instead we both ate fresh pineapple. what we can't understand is why she is trying to sabotage our efforts and bringing sweets over when we tell her we are not going to eat any it's not good for us at all. neither of us caved and said no to the pie.

    I am proud of both you and your mom - that must have been difficult. Don't be too hard on the step-grandmother - sometimes it takes longer for OTHERS to adjust to YOUR changed habits than it does for you. Good for you.

    Maybe you can explain to her that she can show you that she cares in other ways besides food. She probably thinks you are depriving yourself or something. Explain to her why you are doing it and that you eat other stuff in place of it now.

    That is so frustrating! But, you please remember, some people show their love with food and if you suddenly don't want it she may not know how else to show her love... that didn't make much sense but I'm sure you get the gist...

Sometimes in life, we just have sabotagers. For whatever reason they can't seem to accept that you really want to change. Just love them for them and move on.

I hope that helped? emoticon

taming the sweet tooth challenge week 1

Saturday, June 08, 2013

reasons why I need to cut out sweets:

1. sugar makes me to hyper
2. sugar can cause diabetes
3. sugar and excessive sweets can make you overweight
4. to set a good example for my daughter
5. if you eat to much sugar you tend to have more carb craving
6. all your sweets are high calories it makes you go over on calories
7. high fructose corn syrup/ sweet sugar is not good for you
8. sweets are nothing but empty calories and have zero nutritional value
9. sweets give me a high energy level but after it wears off I crash into dreamland.

In His Image day 2

Saturday, June 08, 2013

The lesson talked about how Jesus is the one who truly satisfies. in doing this lesson I realized just how controlling my flesh seems to be. I tend to cater to its needs and wants to much. I eat more food not out of hunger but to give my flesh what it wants so that it will in essence shut up. sometimes I take and deny my flesh and not allow it to control me anymore. I am pretty tricky in the fact I undereat 90% of the time and binge eat 10% of the time.

I realize its an effort to control my flesh and keep it in line. no matter whether we eat very little to deny our flesh or eat to much to try to find satisfaction you are left feeling empty and without satisfaction. Satisfaction can only be found in Jesus Christ.

    It's a tough balance. I've found it helpful to think about honouring my body as a way to honour God's creation. So, trying to eat things and do things that I know will help my body to be healthy the way God created it, and be able to be strong and energetic to do His will. Then it becomes less a battle against the "flesh" (though still against cravings at times), and more a battle *for* a restored body.

Day 1 In His Image

Friday, June 07, 2013

Today begins my first day of my eating course. the lesson was talking about the motives for losing weight. we were asked to list them.
1. to feel good about myself

2. to be noticed and paid attention too

3. to look good

4. to become confident

to name a few. this lesson talked about how we cannot glorify ourself. wanting to glorify self is not a proper motive to lose weight. I learned I was placing more concern on what other people think/ thought about me and no concern about whether I was pleasing God or not by my actions. I asked God's forgiveness for my selfish and unpure motives and asked him to help me replace it with the correct motive for losing weight.
