I would have said they were crazy.....

Sunday, February 03, 2013

If someone told me I would be planning a Superbowl evening without pop, chips, or baked goods, I would have said they were crazy.

If someone told me I could enjoy an all-day basketball tournament without buying anything from the concession stand, I would have said they were crazy.

If someone told me fruit and vegetables would begin tasting fabulous after I stopped eating processed junk, I would have said they were crazy.

If someone told me I could feel full and satisfied without bread or potatoes or pasta, I would have said they were crazy.

If someone told me eliminating wheat and sugar would snuff out cravings, relieve inflammation, and promote regularity, I would have said they were crazy.

If someone told me exercising and eating moderate amounts of healthy food would improve my mood swings and boost my self-confidence , I would have said they were crazy.

If someone told me I would feel much happier and light-hearted when I stayed in control of my eating habits, I would have said they were crazy.

If someone had told me that planning my meals ahead of time, counting every calorie, and budgeting healthy portions would give me a feeling of liberation and contentment, I would have said they were crazy.

Well......someone did tell me. In God's mercy, many different "someones" have been telling me these concepts, many times, for many years. I sigh when I think of how I didn't listen. Not very much, anyway.

By the grace of God, I started taking tiny steps, staggering and backsliding, but still baby-stepping forward. It has taken four years to change my way of eating. My shape does not yet reflect the astonishing growth and inner change I am experiencing. But as I continue on this path of healthy eating and consistent exercise, my outer appearance will eventually match the new person I feel myself to be.
