Pity Party Central

I love how we are not just trying to loose weight or be healthy but we want to get closer to God. I have never done this before. I guess I always thought that since I got myself into this mess (of being overweight) I have to get myself out. But God has always been here for me to help me and now I realize it. Last Saturday I was volunteering at church and they had food there for the volunteers. There were donuts and all kinds of goodies. I was full from breakfast and found myself not being drawn by the donuts. I thought I would feel sorry for myself but I didn't! I had to serve right next to where the donuts were too! I chose to eat fruit and was perfectly happy.

Not to keep it real, we've been snowed in for thermoset several days and I have been wanting to make some kind of awesome dessert. I have two teenaged sons who have been asking me to do so but with my husband's encouragement I have resisted. I did make my boys something for valentine's day but other than that I did well. But I haven't done it in. My own strength, that's for sure!

Thanks for sharing how you could resist the donuts nor on your own strength but because you focused and craved God to help you resist and so you choose the better option the fruit. Blessings as you continue on this journey.

I have still been wanting dessert during this snowstorm but I can't do this on my own. I'm glad,i don't have to!

I'm stuck in the snow storm too and it's been tough- but thank goodness we don't have to fight this battle alone! HE is here with us every step of the way- we just have to ask for His help! Sounds like you are doing a great job of doing that!!
