The hardest thing I am having to come to terms with -- more than I ever have had to in the past -- is this CANNOT BE ABOUT MY WEIGHT (even though I am keeping track of pounds lost). This has to be about WHAT I AM EATING; WHAT FOOD GOES INTO MY MOUTH.

For virtually all of my life, I didn't pay any attention to what I ate. It didn't matter, because I kept the same weight, or close to it. It wasn't until my fifties that the weight came on. By then, my eating habits were so ingrained in my life, it was so hard to equate eating and my weight. And even now, I don't believe God cares what I weigh. He cares about my HEALTH. He cares about TRUTH. He cares about whether or not I am in DENIAL. This is why I weigh myself, because it is a reflection of TRUTH.

So I am reminding myself when I log in my food choices, and see what my carbs and fats and proteins are, that this is all about paying attention to the TRUTH. I have to SEE what I am eating, about what is going into my BODY, and what is happening to it. Losing weight matters because being overweight is NOT healthy or wholesome. It is not part of being in SHALOM.
