Just for today, I will do one thing at a time, until a good chunk of my to-do list is taken care of.

Ohhhh...face-to-face meeting. I didn't know that short form, yet. Thanks!

Just for today - I will ask God to help me to use the gifts and talents He has given me and do those things that He deems need to be done, not the ones I think I need to do.

CJ,
a f2f meeting is just short for a face to face meeting. I have started to make two a week, I found that it really helps to stay consistent with my food plan, and helps with the understanding that food is just a symptom of my disease...I am the problem and I must tend to the causes and conditions of my dilemma, thus I am the soul-ution....

For today, I will attend a f2f mtg, I will share my experience, strength and hope, I will listen for a answer, direction, suggestion...anything that will help me stay on this journey that I have struggled with.
I love the freedom I am getting from this compulsive behavior!

I am the problem
I am the soul-ution
Peace...

Just for today, I am going to focus on simplicity and acceptance. Simplicity in the sense that sometimes less is more (especially with food), and acceptance when the moment comes that I tell myself I have had "enough." And acceptance for all the other things in life that should be allowed to stay as they are. (And hopefully being smart enough to know which they are).

What provides the fullness you hunger for is not grasping at what's pleasant, or rejecting what isn't, but staying present with whatever is going on. --R. Kabatznick

Just for today, I will remember that people's opinions of my weight loss and/or eating don't count in my world or theirs. It only matters to me and my HP this journey I am walking. I don't have to explain but I can gently refuse to people who overpush food and have not learned any boundaries in their life. Including people I live with. This doesn't just have to be in the path of food either.

I will commit to refraining from eating foods not on my SP healthy food list. Don't think I'm ready for weighing/measuring or even planning yet, but I've been so relapsed for about 2 weeks, that this is a powerful decision, just to limit myself (in whatever quantity) to the healthy foods I have on my list. Today. Maybe even just for this hour. Glad you all are here!

Just for today, I am just BEING.

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

That makes it sound like I had one before, doesn't it?

She's my first one. She's great! Such a warm and caring person, I can see already. She is open and friendly. I can't wait to get to know her better. I think I will really like working with her.

She is the one who volunteered to speak to me after the first meeting I attended.
I went to my first celebration night today, and one of the other "longtimers" asked me if I had a sponsor, that I didn't need to wait, I could get one right away if I wished. I asked where I could get one, and she gestured to this other woman, and said she was looking for someone to work with. She shared with me later that she had been praying for someone to work with! I think God has orchestrated this!

But, I should stop rambling. I've "hijacked" this thread away from its real purpose.

How is your husband, Janine?

Just for today ... I will remember that this is a long-term plan, not a quick fix.

Just for today I will ask for Grace from God to keep my heart and mind on track. My husband has been in the hospital for the last week an put on oxygen as he couldn't breathe. He is only 47. Our family is going through this change as God has put this in our path and I am wiling to follow HIS will for our family.

JUST FOR TODAY ...

* I am abstaining from my trouble foods
* I am trusting all the temptations in my path to my Higher Power to get through

Just for today, I will remember that I am powerless over my addiction/disease. I cannot control it, go through it, make it stop.....I, can CHOOSE, to rely on my Higher Power whom can do all things that I cannot....Only He can show me what my job is in the program and to do the footwork. That is all He asks......

That is great Deb! Just for today....I am going to meditate and really listen to what my Higher Power is asking of me. I will not look to the refrigerator for my answers as my Higher Power has them for me.

Just for today, I will turn to God when I feel any compulsive or obsessive thoughts and ask him to remove my defects of character, ask him to let his will, not mine, be done in my life, and ask him what next right thing he would like me to do. By this means I believe that I am given a 24 hour reprieve from compulsive overeating and the obsession of the mind that leads to it.

We use the phrase "Just for Today" to describe a basic approach to recovery from compulsive eating. We don't promise ourselves not to eat compulsively "tomorrow" or "for the rest of the week". We learned promises never worked anyway, and the compulsion to overeat proved more powerful than our best intentions to do so......

What will you do "Just for today?"

Janine
