Better to be a slave to God than pay tribute to the devil

Do I continue to overeat? Yeah, a little. I don't think the overeating bugs me as much as the 'eat when you aren't hungry' bit. It doesn't matter if I'm hungry or not, I want to eat. It's partially a bad habit and partially something much deeper than that.

I went to Institute last night. It's a religious thing. I didn't grow up in the Church, but as long as you're under 30 you can attend institute (even if you're not single, though it is targeted mostly at single adults). It was phenomenal. I don't particularly love church, but I LOVED Institute. The way the teacher presented the material...just fabulous. It really made me feel better about my life, about everything. It strengthened me a little. So even though I didn't go to work today (bad me!) I still got up, worked out, and ate a decent breakfast.

Now I think I'm going to finish cleaning my room (it's still a mess from when we moved in three weeks ago) and do something productive with my day.

    I never enjoyed going to church much either (the people in the ward did not like my family and made it clear), but in high school I was able to tolerate the people during seminary. I wanted to try Institute, but there isn't any options close by my college ): Consider yourself very lucky!

    I had an overeating experience last night, but every day is a new day to try to do much better! I find what helps me is posting inspiring quotes/pictures on my cell phone, and before i eat anything I look at them and it reminds me to be mindful :)
