Message to Myself: Don't Ignore the Problem!
Tuesday, April 28, 2015
Evening eating is not my friend. I have known this for quit awhile yet in the midst of it I will tell myself things like "I will work on this tomorrow" "I'm to tired to worry about making the right choice tonight" "It's been a hard day I deserve....." "I have ate really good all day, no one can always eat right" or I just completely act like I don't realize there is a problem. I am only lying to myself! Which in turn I am the only one paying the consequences of my poor decisions. I need to step up, take responsibility, and change my bad habits. I need to make the right decisions starting now. Every day, one step at time make the right choice, which is exactly how I got to where I am except everyday one choice at a time it was the wrong one. I need to do today what I will be happy with tomorrow and I have God on my side, he has given us the Holy Spirit to strengthen us, lead us into the right choices but we have to listen and obey. In Titus 2:11,12 it says "For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age" Another scripture I love is Phillipians 2:13 "for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose." & in the Amplified Bible says "[Not in your own strength] for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight.":So God will give me the desire to make the right choices & the Holy Spirit will teach me the right choices to make all I have to do is obey!!!
I made the choice yesterday to not eat in the evening & praise God so far I have a victory!!! I didn't eat after supper last night, though I probably did eat more than to the "satisfied" mark & we did eat later than normal......either way I had a victory last night!!!! :-) Eventually I will make enough consecutive good choices & have enough "good" days strung together the weight will come off!!! :-)
Also had a yummy & healthy breakfast this morning (with a slice of cheese not pictured).
