16 days and counting down

Saturday, May 02, 2009

I can hardly believe after years of preparing for this...it is happening!! In 16 days my husband will be voluntarily unemployed!! In a time of economic crisis even!! Sounds crazy...but it is true.

In 18 days we will be in Florida and embarking upon a new chapter in our lives. We will be attending an 8.5 week missionary training with New Mission Systems International.

I cannot recall ever feeling so many different emotions all at once in my entire life. And...as an emotional eater I have spiralled out of control. I am really struggling. And...to be honest...I just don't want to stop...I keep telling myself I will deal with it later that I can't deal with it now. All at the same time, I know that is a lie from the pit of hell. So...I am asking my fellow Christian sisters to pray for me.

Many people have been sharing their May goals. It is too overwhelming to me to set a goal for a whole month right now...so, my goal right now is to blog/journal everyday during this count down...and I will record the food I ate here. Perhaps the combined accountability of putting what I ate in public print along with journalling how I am dealing with all the emotions will help me get back on track.

    I will pray for you! I have so much going on, though definitely not the lifestyle changes you have (but what exciting lifestyle changes!!!!) and I am also an emotional eater. I understand....:-) Keep us posted as you can! {Colossians 3:17} emoticon

    Hey Michelle - you're pretty close to your goal, too! Thanks for commenting on my blog and sharing about your joys and struggles in yours. You are in a transition period right now. I like what Pam said about "one choice at a time." Get yourself some healthy snacks - fruit, almonds, yogurt, etc., and I will pray you start to crave the "good stuff" ;-)

    wow, michelle! just 16 more days... i'm so proud of you both for following through with what God is asking you to do, even when it seems crazy. indeed, He is an odd God.... but how blessed we are to know Him as we do.

    just remember it's one choice at a time when your emotions are spinning out of control. you don't have to control your food for the whole day. just for this one choice. that seems easier to me.
