I've been gone for a bit but I haven't fallen completely off the wagon! Would you believe it if I told you I changed direction again??? I know, I can't make up my mind. Seriously, though, back in November last year, I made a promise to myself, and God, that I wouldn't diet anymore. Then I started gaining weight and got scared (as I predicted). So, I tried to start my own diet and called it healthy living. Then I tried mindful eating, then I tried weight watchers.
Then...I felt convicted that I was breaking my promise to God and myself. So I just did nothing for a bit. Sometimes I feel like I live my life between diets. Nuts! Anyway, I was led back to a way of eating that I've dabbled with in the past, but never fully embraced. I'm reading Thin Within and eating when I'm hungry and stopping when I'm satisfied. Today is day one. The book takes me through 30 days. After that I can get workbooks that last 12 weeks each. I'm taking this one day at a time. I am learning not to condemn myself but to observe and correct. "There is therefore no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."
Now if I can only learn to live this out.
