Hi all .. shakes the dust off .. Well I have sat back to long .. new plan .. 1 God will always be first in my life .. 2 I will put me next in line .. a hard one for me ..
for years I did not love me .. now I love me but I don't like the way me is still falling for bad things .. and what I mean is I still have binges .. so .. Im gonna come in
a new fashion this is 2013,, Feb .. so its time to get armed and dangerous .. I plan to read more on this issue and learn what is triggering me to do it .. it is not easy
to stop a 40 plus year bad habit but I know I can do this .. God says all things are possible thru him .. PHILIPPIANS CHAPTER 4 : 13 I can do all things through Christ which strengthenS me.
So I will be focusing on the answer to my problem I cant do this on my own .. over and over God has reminded me of this .. so one day at a time .. I will make a place in
my groups for how are you doing today .. and I will make sure I pray for those who need it and I ask you to pray for me .. my worst times are at night .. God has told me
to stop eating my evening meal .. I wont tell anyone to do that but is what he has shown me .. I have to get this down I know to move on .. So please pray for me .. 3 I will
exercise daily at the very least 10 min and increase .. 4 I will laugh each day .. so I guess I will be finding a clean joke place .. do you know I just realized I don't laugh ..
wow not good .. 5 I will reach out to at least one person a day who needs help... 6.. I will do one thing for me a day .. do nails hair so on .. I used to not step out without
makeup .. wow have I changed now its just stepping out period .. 7 I will make time for going to see my sister in the nursing home no matter how it hurts .. and I do mean
physically .. well that's my new start who says you have to have a new years resolution is my new plan will be adding .. I will make the new stuff in my group I stay in the most
will link it ..So lets do this .. I am not where I want to be but if I don't start now how can I be .. lets not let one day more go by .. ITS A NEW DAY .. WHOO HOOOO ..

    I don't remember from whom or where I copied that, but it is not mine. It does however give me great strength and comfort when I say it!! I hope it will bless you also.
    Stay strong in God!

    Great blog, my friend It sounds you are very committed and determined. Way to go! I know you are leaning on the Lord for your help. Philippians 4:13 is so awesome; he always does what he promises. Hang in there! Have you tried eating 3Bean Taco Soup for your evening meal. It is soooooooooooo good and filling.

    Thanks for the encouragement. So often we need to be reminded of Gods unfailing love for us and how "we are abusing our bodies. A nice reminder these are our temples. Let's treat them so! I have made a commitment not to eat after 5pm At least for lent. Yesterday my last meal was at lunch. Because of running around and going to church service last night. I don't think I really intend to skip dinner, but it happened. Today I just need to make sure to eat before 5. Let's see how it works. I usually like to do reading in the book of psalms when craving something. Maybe you can try it @ night too.

    each day is a new beginning Lamentation 3:22,23 my paraphrase- let us search and try our ways and turn again to the lord, let us lift up our hearts to him. It is of the lord's mercy that we are not consumed--his faithfulness to us is new every morning....and his faithfulness to us is ALWAYS bigger than our present circumstance! Rejoice in knowing that he will never leave you to journey on your own- and that a merry heart is like good medicine . LAUGH every day! it is good for you. the JOY of the lord is your strength

    To aid you in #4, I send out Doc's Daily Chuckle most M - F. It consists of 2 clean jokes, a positive quote and the first names of some people who need prayer.
    If you would like to receive it, sparkmail me your e-mail address. You'll receive an e-mail that asks if you want to receive DDC. Send it back and you'll be added to those I send it to.

    Dearest sister in the Lord,
    I know that you are wanting to do better, and I will pray for you. I trust that the Lord will guide you.
    Take it one day at a time.
    And even hours by hour,
    and sometimes minute by minute.
    Rejoice with the successes,

    And when you slip up, don't use that as an excuse to stay in the slip up, but get up and get going.

    You can do it with the Lord's help.
    Hugs, Ravyna

    your list is rather extensive but maybe you can put up reminders around your personal space to help keep you on track. If you are having a hard time w/o eating at night only stock healthy foods because its not likely yo will go out late evenings just to eat. also try having a satisfying last meal
    you can do it
    one day at a time
    Every Day is a New Start Let Go of YesterDay!!!!

    It is a new day in the Lord. He can take any habit and destroy its hold. I am giving God the glory for what you will be receiving from Him this awesome and holy Lenten season!

    emoticon emoticon You are in my prayers.

    Quite a list! I don't know what is going on with your sister or why the visit is personally painful. I pray that there will be some kind of healing there.

    Perhaps your sister's health issues would help to be a motivator in your minute by minute struggle food decisions??

    As for laughing, I pulled together some videos: Carol Burnett, I Love Lucy, Mork & Mindy, etc. and I'd watch them on a portable DVD player with headphones during chemotherapy. My laughter was catching though no one knew what I was laughing at. Someone always asked to have me retell the funny storyline and soon the whole room was laughing. Perhaps the people in the nursing home could benefit from your laugh prescription?

    I wish you peace and happiness.
