Struggling


Friday, January 25, 2013

Feeling blue and very food needy.

A good friend and neighbor passed away Tuesday and my automatic response is to want to use food to dull my senses and take away the pain. How is it that we have given food so much power in our lives?

So far, thru prayer, I have not done much damage to my food plan; but there has been no victory either. The battle still rages. Then, of course, I feel bad becuz the prayers and thoughts are all about me... instead of my friends family. Does this battle with food ever end? Maybe not in this world.

    I don't think the battle ever ends. I struggle all the time. I am an emotional eater but I am working at finding other ways to cope. Getting mad at my husband and overeating doesn't hurt him, it hurts me. You can rant at me on my page any time you need to have an ear. emoticon

    I don't know when the battle ends. May I suggest that each time you pray to get rid of the temptation, you also pray for your friend's family.
