The Chocolate That Got Away

Saturday, January 12, 2013

“Your thoughts…are the source of true life.” Pr 4:23 CEV I am really and truly trying to cut back on my sugar and chocolate is one of my most favorite foods, so today I did not put the scrumptious chocolate dessert on my plate. I thought about my goals of eating healthy and I thought about how I would feel after I had stuffed my mouth with the delicious chocolate, so today I did not eat it. God had blessed me with self-control and today I used it. I will still think about and eat sweets—especially chocolate, however I will choose what is best for me one dessert at a time, one day at a time and one small portion at a time. The person God blesses must “exercise self-control, live wisely, and have a good reputation” (1Ti 3:2 NLT). emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I hear you! I love chocolate as well! My goal is not to eliminate it totally, but have it in moderation. Like you stated, it's all about self-control!
