God has done something in me through this month of focusing on changing my thought processes and taking captive those thoughts that serve to hinder and sabotage my efforts. Something clicked as God answered my prayer to help me change my thinking in ways that will help me take hold of the health He desires for me. I am in awe of our God and latching on to this new lifestyle with hope of glorifying my God who helps me.


Hugs to you,
Darlene

Thanks for posting this, Darlene, I feel exactly the same way! I have not lost anything, but luckily I have not gained anything in the past 10 days. I just need to get my 'ghost' to fly away!!!

If we saw all the difference even the tiniest of our prayers make, and all the people those...prayers were destined to affect...we would be so paralyzed with awe...that we would be unable to get up off our knees for the rest of our lives.

I wrote the following to a friend today and found a "ghost" thought trapped there:

"I am working hard to stay on track with my diet and exercise. Right now I feel like I am in panic mode, trying to stop the gain. My weight is stuck for the most part, rocking back and forth over about a three pound area. But the swing up seems to be ouncing me higher and higher on the scales. Frustrating. Now listen to what I said. The way I keep wording that and thinking of it is as if my weight is the culprit apart from my food choices. I must own my actions and make better choices. This weight creeping up is not without cause. My brain needs to own up to that. Sounds like a ghost thought just now falling into the trap to me."



Hugs to you,
Darlene

Good going, Darlene!! I have done that before too, but then I will say something like.."oh, one soda won't hurt" I'm proud to say that I have not had a soda in almost 2 weeks. I was drinking it a lot when I was on the night shift at work (almost convinced myself I needed it to keep alert) but now, I am back to only drinking water...and I have a cup and tea bags in my desk drawer, so if I want something warm..I can have a cup of tea.

emoticon I caught a ghost! My DH asked for a soda and there it was, "Oh...that sounds good. I want a soda!" Then I caught it with, "But you don't NEED a soda. Drink some hot tea. That will be good too. It will be better for me. And maybe it will help my ears to unplug." Also I see it is nearly 3 PM. I am not hungry. I will keep my thoughts on that and avoid the "snack".

My main ghost stems around snacking. I was raised to snack, and if we did not have sweets in the house, mix sugar and cocoa and eat that. Somehow I think I just have to have snacks around 3 in the afternoon and 8 to 9 PM at night. It is difficult for me to consider fruit or other healthy options as a good "snack."

I know that I need to change my idea of what a snack is and I probably need to do away with "snack" in my vocabulary and habits all together. Instead I need to plan "meals", including small, healthy meals at those times when I tend to think I need to eat, not necessarily to eat them, but to have a plan and preparation for those times. But for the most part, I need to listen to my body's hunger signals over my habitual snack signals.

This month I will work to be alert to my thoughts when "snacking" enters my head, to see if I can discover those "ghost" thought processes and take them captive with true knowledge that can help me to change my habits.


Hugs to you,
Darlene

This month I am working to change the way I think, realizing that "As a man thinks, so is he" (Proverbs 23:7). Here is your challenge:

Consider the habits you struggle with. When did that habit start? Can you pinpoint the thinking that keeps you falling back into that habit? Brainstorm yours with us if you need to, but determine changes in your way of thinking about that habit. What will you begin this month to change in the way you think and how do you see that change in thinking effecting your habit / actions? Share your habit, the thought (if you can) and the changes you will make both in thinking and in actions. Report your progress, victories, and struggles throughout the month.

Catch that ghost and let's change that habit by taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.



Hugs to you,
Darlene
