A NEW DAY, EXPECTING NEW VICTORY!

IMG_0336     Lord Jesus, forgive me. I broke down last night. It really started yesterday morning when I was more interested in the news than my “sweet time” with You. Then last night I really broke when I started eating all the sweets. There are several sweets in this house due to others here, and I just completely broke down. For two days now, I have struggled against the pull of this temptation , but last night all my resolve just collapsed! Continue reading A NEW DAY, EXPECTING NEW VICTORY!

PEACE LIKE A RIVER! (Part-two – Uh-oh!)

20131009-144856.jpg      [ Just after such a wonderful conversation with my Lord, I went to the restroom. I know . . . this is just too much information! But afterwards, I decided to weigh myself just one more time only to see if I now weighed less since I had gone to the restroom. In hindsight, I now realize that my thinking is just warped due to this bondage of the scales and compulsive overeating. But I do want to say, that probably everyone trying to lose weight has done this at one time or another. Then immediately after I weighed myself for the second time, the Lord and I had another heart-to-heart discussion. But this time, it was not praise from my Lord. Sigh.]

What??? Lord, how can this possibly be? Surely that cup of coffee didn’t weigh that much? Continue reading PEACE LIKE A RIVER! (Part-two – Uh-oh!)

PEACE LIKE A RIVER! (Part one- lost another 3 pounds!)

20131009-063604.jpg     Lord, can you tell me why I lose three pounds when I go the entire week waiting until the appointed time to weigh and then I stay the same weight on the week that I weigh myself throughout the week? Continue reading PEACE LIKE A RIVER! (Part one- lost another 3 pounds!)

WALK BY FAITH, NOT SIGHT!

IMG_9445Lord, I want to stand on those scales really bad! I wonder if I have lost any weight this week?

(Wait My child, obey Me in this! Wait until the appointed time. Remember that your success is not determined by a number from a box you stand on. Your obedience and submission to Me determines your success.)

But Lord, what if I haven’t lost any weight?

(Then, what will you do, My child?) Continue reading WALK BY FAITH, NOT SIGHT!

COOKIES, OH MY!

[ Written from the past. Praise God, He has delivered me from  27 pounds since               May 23, 2013.]

A dish of homemade cookies.

Lord, did you see all those cookies I ate last night?

(Yes, I did.)

Lord, everyday I start eating correctly, then by bedtime I have eaten everything I can get my hands on! Sometimes I even get in the bed eating!

(I see.) Continue reading COOKIES, OH MY!

THE MESS! (Writings from last year)

20130926-194042.jpgLord, I have really made a mess of things, haven’t I? I am overdrawn at the bank, overweight, and I haven’t sought You or even listened. Now I ask for help, now that I am in a hole. Lord, how do You put up with me? Lord, I want You, but I seek pleasure in other things. Here I am, a mess, expecting You to put back the pieces! How dare me? Continue reading THE MESS! (Writings from last year)

YOU ARE NOT ALONE! (written on May 22, 2013)

IMG_7200Lord Jesus, here I am. I don’t even know what to say?    Uh . . . well . . . I got there. I hit a new mark not seen since 2001. I now weigh 241.2 pounds. Oh why, why did I keep eating until I arrived at that number? Why?  Insanity describes all my actions, or at least those about food. Continue reading YOU ARE NOT ALONE! (written on May 22, 2013)
