That's my food order. It came yesterday when Nik was home. He wasn't impressed. He's trying to gain weight. Oh to be young and thin. Sigh... I can do this. I have great willpower when I want it. When I'm challenged. I can always rise to a challenge.
I've lost weight in the past but then life happens and I turn to food to get myself through it. That is a very dumb thing to do and it doesn't help. All it does is make me feel bad about myself and make my body feel very out of whack. I'm going to be 50 in August. Oh my! That's next month. Wow! Okay. Now is as good a time as any to start moving forward on many things in my life, not just food.
In order to do that, move forward I mean, I have to let God be in control of every part of my life. Last night a portion of a verse was floating in my mind and I found it. I'm claiming it this month as mine. To stand on. To hold onto, even as the wind blows and tries to knock me off course.
“Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland." -- Isaiah 43:18, 19 NIV
