Good for you! That's the first step and be sure not to let the other stuff sneak back in. I have learned one thing for sure with my husband, who is not on this journey, is that he will eat the food that's cooked no matter what. If I have fruit cut up and setting out, he'll eat it. And If one of my experiments is awful, he just lets me know he wouldn't want it again. Occasionally he has a suggestion on what might make it better. So he keeps his Ramen on hand always for the weeknights we are on our own, we eat a lot of salads during the week. He eats lunch out. So he gets the food he wants, and when I cook, he gets healthier meals, which he is liking, and has input. He's eating more veggies too, but he adds soy sauce or something to his to help them out. I see changes in some of his habits which is encouraging, but I don't push it.
So be strong and experiment!
Deliver us from just going through the motions and help us heed your call. Breathe into us the restlessness and courage to do something new, something saving, and something true, that we may be agents of your love and grace and know in our bones what it means to be your people.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
