I have learned that there is a big difference between being hungry and your stomach is growling and your head wanting something to eat. I have found that the battle with my head is the hardest. It wants food when I'm tired, or feeling blue or bored or someone hurt my feelings. It's a much more difficult battle because my head wants sweet stuff or things I shouldn't eat. My stomach is usually satisfied with whatever is healthy and fills it up. So I'm trying to tame the ugly beast that lives in my head by denying it any power at all and just saying no and doing something else or just going to bed at night when it wants a bedtime snack.One of my favorite Bible verses has always been "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" So often a prayer to ask for help and strength works beautifully. I wish everyone a glorious day.
