The last time I felt really proud of myself was last week when I went to the Supermarket for eggs and milk. On my way into the store I had the thought that I could buy Oreos, and make up individual sized serving bags to have on hand for snacks. I read the label and aw that THREE cookies was 140 calories and a high degree of fat. Then I looked at popcorn and it was also 140 calories per serving and high fat. I looked at several other things and ALL of them were high in fat and calories. At the checkout, I was feeling a little sorry for myself so thought I would buy a small pack of M & M's. I read the label on that, as well. It was 230 calories and very high in fat. I put the pack back on the shelf, paid for my milk and eggs and left the store. When I got home, I treated myself to a cup of seedless grapes and savored the sweetness of each one! I was SO VERY PROUD OF MYSELF for making good choices. There is NO WAY I could ever eat just THREE Oreos or just ONE CUP of popcorn, and I was able to recognize this before I bought these things. Maybe one day I will be able to eat just three Oreos. It is perhaps a goal for myself. All things in moderation!
I trust in Jehovah to provide for me. He will help me to remain positive and moving forward--no matter what!
