The last couple weeks I’ve felt like I’ve finally turned a corner. It felt like for so long I was stuck at the 10 pounds loss point and now I’m nearing the 15 pound point and it feels great! During the week I used to think about the unhealthy treats that I would allow myself to have on Saturday and now its freeing not to allow myself to start thinking about it. I really think that was slowing down my progress so much.
At the start of this week I asked God to help me to say no to temptation but also to create in me thankfulness for the food that I can eat that is healthy and that will nourish my body. Because the truth is even though I’m not allowing myself “treat days” any more, there is still so much good food that I can have and enjoy. I don’t want this weight loss journey to become a drudgery and something that I hate. As I have said before, this is about being able to find freedom and satisfaction in Christ rather than in food. God’s ways are not burdensome, I’m so thankful for this truth each time I am reminded of it. There are so many things in this world that offer to temporally mask our pain and struggles but only Christ heals us fully.
I thought this blog I would talk about some of the food and products that I’m really enjoying lately. I am thankful to be able to start to love the healthier food out there and I hope it continues! Many of these things have come recommended by friends so thank-you!
