Food Wars

Wow, it has been awhile since I have been on here. Life with school has been crazy. Takes up most of my days and any free time is spent with my family. And what an amazing family I have. They have tolerated my nose being glued to the computer and headphones stuck in my ears for months now. This is the last 2 days of the semester, and only 1 class left until I am completely done. Yay!!!

I am entering 60 days on the SBD. I am amazed and a little suprised that I have stuck with it this long. Usually, after the first month, I am done. No more. But, this has been an amazing journey so far. It has taught me that food is well, just food. Nothing more, nothing less. There to keep my body and mind moving, but not to take over my body and mind. Now, the days of tears are farther between, but still can happen. I am no longer afraid of the scale. (Which I did finally break down and buy, and hides in the cupboard under the sink.) I don't totally dread getting ready in the morning and I change my clothes a little less often.

I can't take all the credit. With Christ as my bread of Life and my hubby as my cheerleader, I have been able to conquer these past 2 months. I would not have made it without them All.

Life is taking some turns, and my reliance on Christ and my trust in food has been tested. I pray that I continue choosing Christ over something that sustains for only a short time. I pray that my choices reflect my devotion and that He is my hearts desire, not my stomachs desire!
