When I first became a Christian I went at it full force. I went to church several times a week. I joined every Bible study that I could. I bought every Christian music CD that I could find. I did all of those things but what I did not do is take the time to look inward at myself first. My intense jump start into Christianity caused me to burn out...and quick. Within only a few months I stopped listening to my CDs, going to church, and gave up on Bible study.
Looking back on that experience, I learned a really important lesson then: start things slowly so that you don't burn out. Not only that, but plan before you begin. That being said, I have not officially started "dieting" as of yet. I have been using the past week to journal and find myself. I've been spending this time learning about why I choose to eat the foods I do, instead of opting for a healthy alternative. My hope is that I will not burn out if I plan in advance. Beginning tomorrow I will take all of this planning and put it into action. It's definitely time!
