Lord, help me get back on track. It was a good ride from January through May. Help me. Cause my will to back away from sugar. Cause my day to be strengthened by saying no, over and over. Set me up for success today. I need your spirit, Holy Spirit, guide me in decisions-to say no when my old flesh wants to be coddled by sweets. Give me your spirit of self-control.
I've titled this blog I'm Typical because when I read stories of amazing weight-loss there is usually an asterix leading to the small print at the bottom ---*results not typical. Well, after years of traveling on the weight-loss road I feel I fall into the typical category. It's a long, hard journey. I wish I could say there's joy but it's mostly a struggle - honestly. And in honesty I have learned that openness, vulnerability and confession are key to breaking free of a sin and overeating for me has been a sin. I am tired of it literally weighing me down. So this blog has begun as a fork in my road (with no cake on that fork!). I hope to be honest with my eating journal. It will keep me accountable. It's mostly for me but I open it to anyone else also walking down this road who may share in the same steps (sometimes it feels like 2 steps forward and 3 steps back, but at least we're moving!).
