March Has Arrived!

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.

Nice to read your post again. After reading your post, one thing is certain.


I love the cartoon strips. Have a wonderful abstinent March. You will always be in my prayer.

Hi Cindy...

I admire your honesty and your outlook on where to go from here. It's great to see how you work things out!

I've been trying to remind myself (which hasn't been easy lately) that it's not about the food and I have to just take one day at a time. I have a tendency to get overwhelmed by the big picture, so if I can just make it through today then I'll deal with tomorrow when it comes.

We're in this together! Hang in there... God's holding on tight!!! :O)

Happy Days!
