This post is written with no specific one in mind.
This post is not for everyone.
It’s just me wanting to share something that to me is good and good for me.
I’ve gained a few pounds since the beginning of the year.
I gained those pounds emotionally eating – even eating when I was not really hungry and eating things I did not need. A few days ago the magic number flipped a switch in my thinking.
That number was not going to stand period the end.
And tonight while I was whipping up some mayonnaise for tomorrow’s potato salad I realized I really wanted to come here and talk about this.
For me eating what I do not need is a spiritual thing. When I eat more than I need or when I eat foods that are not helpful to me, it wounds my soul.
When I surrender to those not good for me now food images dancing in my head, I feel bad — physically and emotionally.
Whipping up the mayo tonight, I recognized, hey, wait I’m a happier soul these recent days.
And I know why!
I’ve been saying NO.
No to certain foods.
No to amounts. And No to the times I eat.
When I say no. I’m not going to eat that and you can’t make me. It’s a really nice spiritual high.
I like it. And I’m grateful.
It encourages me to know I CAN say NO to anything I need to say NO to.
There is indeed VICTORY in JESUS!
That’s it. That’s all I had to say.
Thanks for listening and being a means to hold myself accountable.
