I find it interesting that you garnered so much negativity in the responses. But it is good that you ponder and reflect on things. If that is what works for you, then keep on plugging away.
“Do not let your fire go out spark by irreplaceable spark... Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real…. It is possible…. It’s yours. “ Ayn Rand (Atlas Shrugged)
I am one of those who responded and provided input. I do NOT expose myself to negativity and really work to stress the POSITIVES. I also recognize that not every plan nor every team is for everyone - if this one isn't for you, find one that works better for YOU. That is why there ARE so many teams and so many plans.
With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

Thank you for giving me some input on my questions. Stuff like this run through my head all the time. I have always been inquisitive by nature. I walk/jog every day. While I'm out there all kinds of stuff goes through my head. I am curious to see what percentage of people who acknowledge they are emotional eaters are successful and how many people are struggling. Could it be that they are constantly exposing themselves with negative connotations about food. Instead of focusing on the positive aspects about food. Such as how beneficial eating a well rounded diet that includes foods that are normally thought to be prohibited. Everything in moderation.Deprivation is a major contributor to the failure of diets If we have been eating a certain way all of our lives then taking those foods and totally removing them from our so called new lifestyle only to go back to their old ways. Telling ourselves that certain things are bad for us. Instead of thinking that those foods can be eaten in moderation. Reminding ourselves over and over again that we are emotional eaters. Then we eventually try and rationalize that we are emotional eaters during times of stress and allow ourselves to go on a binge. We give ourselves permission to over eat by telling ourselves that it's okay because this is what we do when we are under stress. Kinda defeating the purpose isn't it?
Just some food for thought.
So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
