From Drill Sargent to Jaws .
Friday, July 12, 2013
I have a confession to make , I am an emotional eater. When I am in my normal mode or a happy state of mind , I can turn down Cheesecake, Lasanga ,Snickers , You name it ! but when I am tired , over worked , sad , or angry ,I turn in to JAWS !!!! I eat all that good stuff and wait... I even eat stuff I don't even like ! I have lost 40 pounds so far and Thank God I havent gained , But its only a matter of time. I have lost 2 pounds since April and its much less then I hoped for I have 25 more to go until My goal weight .
I keep thinking and forgive me I am not one to memorize Bible verses but I keep thinking of Biblical passages like " If a man asks you for your coat give him your shoes as well." and " If a man slaps you on your right cheek offer him your left as well" Well sometimes I feel like I am just standing there with no shoes no coat and two slapped cheeks ! Our Minister said that we should never underestimate our value because God made us , and let others know we have limits and standards , So why do I feel like sometimes I forgive too much and offer too much . For example , I have a friend a dear , dear friend shes like a sister to me, She has been to my house , no lie about 500 times over the years for dinner.I love cooking , I love getting the house ready and lighting candles and finding fun things for us to do but and here comes the but .. I have never been invited once to her house . Now I just decided that perhaps her house wasnt tidy. Yes that was it , Maybe she was ashamed to have me over , although she knows I wouldnt judge her or her house ! I recently went to her house to deliver somethings to her , We have know each other since childhood and I hadnt been in her house since our sons were babies ! and they are 21 and 19 now , and guess what ! IT WAS SPOTLESS !!!!!!!! I blurted out " Your house is clean !
and she said " of course its clean why wouldnt it be ! " and I covered it nicely and said " I meant to say your house is so clean ! It looks great!" but seriously then I wondered why hasnt she invited me over in all these years ! I think I am going to need a part two for this blog because I am kinda getting off track so I will post another one later ! lol
