I am really struggling with the eating. Over the break, I didn't plan what I ate or measure or record. I have been keeping up with exercising. Thank God! It's just that I have not been mindful with my eating. I try and then fail but I am not giving up. The other day I felt anxious and caught myself mindlessly eating. I have a problem with emotional eating. I know not to do it yet I find myself doing it anyway.
I talked with the coach at Curves today. She wants me to go back to a 1200 calorie diet for three days next week and to plan what I will eat and stick to it religiously. She said she is going to join me in doing this. Today when I stepped on the scale my weight was up and I gained inches. I am disappointed but hopeful.
I REALLY need prayer to OVERCOME this weakness and stay on track. It seemed easier when I gave up smoking 17 years ago and that is because God delivered me. I don't really miss smoking. I no longer crave it. I know I can't give up food because I need food. I have to apply what I have learned about managing it and NOT let it manage me!! I think the same underlying thing(s) that moved me to smoke, moves me to eat at times and I need help in fully surrendering this to God! One problem I have is that I am not fully aware of what these THINGS are. I know a piece of it but not all of it. I need God's help in discerning what the things are and facing them with Him. I think I have been afraid to face these things and have somehow put up a block of what these things are. In order to be set free, I have to confront these "THINGS" with God's help. I NEED to change and I have been lacking the motivation. I KNOW He will deliver me in this area. I trust Him! Thanks for listening!!

    I am praying for you. However, I know that most people over eat when something is missing in their life. So I will pray that you will find what is causing the emptiness within you. You are a special person, who I know will grow stronger after experiencing this. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You are in my prayers. It is so hard to not eat when there are so many "good" foods. My problem is that if there is something I really like I eat it whether I'm hungry or not. God is with us.

    "Yea tho I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, i will fear no evil. For thou art with me". It is a scarey thing to look honestly at negative emotions that trigger emotional eating. I know because I have traveled there myself. The Lord will help you and show you the emotions that trigger eating. Be it anger, judging yourself or others, resentment, worry, or a whole host of others that I could mention that is the common lot of man. He wants to give you the gifts you need to get rid of the negative emotions; peace, trust, hope, forgiveness, trust, faith. and love and more. I am praying for you. Never give up no matter how tempting it is.
