Today’s number was even lower than I expected: 166.7
So how did I get here? By pretty strictly adhering to no sugar (and I have had all kinds of sugar pass through the house), being careful to only eat when hungry (so there was some fasting), limiting my carbs (today there was a 1/2 cup of white rice and some bread crumbs on my fish), going to my exercise classes and LOTS of prayer.
To be honest, I think the latter is the most crucial for serious movement in the right direction. Not that I mean God is supernaturally taking weight off my body necessarily (although I guess that is also possible) but I mean staying close to God keeps me honest and humble….two very important factors in dealing with my food addictions. Being close to God means that I have the courage to face myself and not just avoid my emotions or run away from my troubles. I am giving them to God instead and not using food as my escape.
I cannot really explain it to be honest. Maybe I will try to do so in another post.
For now, all I know is that walking with God is the key to freedom. Of course, to be clear, I’m not walking with God because I want weight loss. That is just a very nice bonus. Truth is, that I feel dead and stuck in my life despite having everything a heart could desire. I really really want God…that is why I am walking with Him. I am so tired of missing Him in this life.
No more of such foolish wanderings without God.
