I can't believe that today is the 1st day of March. What a fast year we are having! I got on the scales this morning only to find that I have gained another 5 pounds. I thought I had lost... but instead, up I go. That sucks. I know exactly why it happened. I just didn't stick to my food plan. This last month my sponsor wanted me to weigh and measure my food. Well, I like food! I don't want less. So, I gained. Ok... time to check out what I want. Do I really want to continue down this road and go back to the old me... or am I willing to start afresh and do what I need to do with HP's help? Hmm???
I must do what is good for me. I need to accept that I cannot eat like everyone else and lose weight. I am an overeater, a compulsive one! I cannot eat like you and lose... or even stay health. I have to follow my food plan. Do I want to? Not really. I love white flour and sugar. I am going to miss my breads and candies. Can I do this with God's help? YES. Am I willing to do it? YES... one day at a time! So... with this in mind I ask that you put me on your prayer list. I need to be solidly grounded in His will and not mine. I need to remember who is in charge of my life... and it AIN'T me!
Have a wonderful abstinent March. Will chat more later.
