Five years ago today was the last time I had sweets. Cookies, Cakes, Donuts etc.
This BLOG is from ADD TO YOUR FAITH. And the first step in Adding To Your Faith is VIRTUE — and UNTARNISHED TRUTH.
I decided to create this BLOG so I can give an untarnished truth, but I don’t want it on Facebook. THis is invitation only. If I know you as someone supportive, I’ve told you about this site. As I will share Untarnished Truths, I hope you find it to be a safe place to do the same. You are more then welcome to add comments or posts. I do ask that you not give advise unless someone asks for it, and that you just share your actual experience — because we already “KNOW” what we are supposed to do — but actually doing it, is a totally different story.
So here is the Untarnished Truth. Five years ago, I stopped eatting SUGAR, and somewhere along the line, I also stopped eatting FLOUR. Well in the past 6 months, I started eatting food with sugar in it and food with flour in it. I still didn’t eat cookies, cake and stuff, but I would eat peanut butter (2nd ingredient sugar), I replaced splenda in my coffee to organic sugar made with evaporated cane juice, and in the past 3 weeks found my self eatting freeze pops. Although I’m ok with the organic sugar; I’m not ok with peanut butter and freeze pops. I keep eatting them. And it is never a good sign, when I eat something that I can’t stop eatting. That means that food has dominion over me instead of me having dominion over it.
6 months ago, I was fired from a job. I really liked working there, but I was not doing a good job. Aside from the emotional blow to my ego, I have started working at home. The 2 combined has contributed to the 20 pound weight gain I talked about. Because, I must admit it is a lot easier to plan my meals and take them with me, then to be in the house with my kitchen all day. But like it or not, planning my meals work for me. Journaling works for me. And having other people on the journey with me, works for me. So, if you would like to join the journey – come one. Oh — another thing that I ask, is that you do not correct my grammar errors. You will find many, I know, and I will try to correct them, but if I miss something OH WELL!!!!
Anyway, here we go. I’m aiming for 35 pounds. I’ve never been a 10/12 as an adult… Actually I don’t ever remember being a 10/12… But I still believe that is the size God desires me to be so that I can be of best use to Him.
God Bless You
