Well, not really! Gluttony is one of the 7 deadly sins you hear about, It's not fruit of the Spirit as in Galations 5:22, 23.
Last night, I lost control with the potato chips (again ) and I'm paying for it on the scales this morning. I went from 138 lbs to 144.8 lbs overnight! I can fluctuate this much with water weight, so I should know better. But I wasn't thinking of the sodium. Yeah, I noticed the cheesy, salty, greasiness of the chip and I...........loved it. Forgot about ME for a minute. The real ME, the ME that wants to eat healthy, the Me that wants to exercise, and the ME that likes to drink water. I followed the lust of the flesh, and just went for it But, there's always consequences to every action we take, whether to binge on potato chips or eat some yummy! rice cakes for the crunch, I should have went for the rice cakes. Now, I'm suffering the consequences for my behavior: bloating and weight gain.
It's time to repent, to turn it around, to get back up, and forgive myself. All is not lost! Yes, I missteped. I'm not perfect, but I misstep a whole lot less now than I used to. What can I do differently today? What are 2 steps I can take in the right direction for a healthier ME? I definitely need to OD on water and I can choose to eat healthy today, no potato chips, no trigger foods.
