I have better days than others, just like everyone else. If I realize (admittedly, my hindsite is better than my foresight) that I'm struggling, I ask God to comfort me and give me strength. I ask Him to deliver me from all temptations. A private time with God every morning is very enlightening and energizing for my day as well.
I got really tired the last few days (sick child up in the middle of the night.) When I get depleted I tend to overeat. I had tracked all my intake yesterday and did well until after the kids were in bed. Then, because I have this idea stuck in my head that eating will energize me, I ate 2 bowls of cereal. I knew I would go over on all my ranges and I wasn't hungry. At times like these, I want to develop a habit of discipline and reliance on God (and good sense to go to bed.) Does anyone else face a similar struggle? What do you do? Does anyone have a testimony of how God has given you victory over impulse, binge or emotional eating?
