YOU and YOU ALONE are resdponsible for controling your life. God may shine the way for you, but you are the one that has to decide to walk in the light or in darkness. This applies to every area of life.
God has empowered you to take control by deciding what is in you and what comes out of you. It's up to you to use it.

Pick something in your life that you aren't fond of - a bad habit. Commit to NOT doing it for ONE week or one time depending on the habit. I ALWAYS do popcorn at the movie. Like me? Go to one movie and take some fruit that'll last-cut up apple, orange-and some bottled water. You'll be so proud of yourself and you will realize taht these bad habits don't have the hold on you that you think they do. Keep going-skip the crackers and wine you have each weekend. You WILL surprise yourself!!!
TAKE CONTROL AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY!!
Take responsibility for your choices. When you eat for emotional reasons, the situation doesn't take control...you GIVE it control. Take that control back! We all make mistakes and wind up giving our control away, but say to yourself "yes, I did that, I gave my control away...but now I am making the choice to take it back!"
Since my husband became ill, I have channeled all my energy into taking care of him. He is not making as much progress because he won't get up and move. I recently had a heart attack and he has to fix his own food now and do more for himself. It was hard at first, but everyday it gets easier. 334 I let him do it.
It is helping me relax a bit more seeing him take some responsibility for his health. 224
