Back to Weight Loss

Here I am, still struggling with weight loss.  Yes, I have lost about 55 pounds. And it feels GREAT! But I still have 35 to go and have been at a standstill for about 8 months.  There has been a lot of stress in our lives, so I am grateful to be hanging out in the 180s, but don't want to stay there.  And the holidays are coming up. Starting TOMORROW!!!!! Halloween.  Boy do I struggle with that one, in many ways, but that is not what this post is about.

I have to say that eating, for me, is really a spiritual issue. I do a lot of self medicating. If I eat myself numb I don't have to feel, right? But how healthy is that, really?  Eventually those feelings have to come out or they take more and more food to stuff them down.  There goes my 55 pounds.  So, I am dealing with the spiritual issues I am facing. And I am facing them! Not eating them away.

On Monday,  a friend and I are starting Faithfully Fit.  A 40 day journey to getting at the heart of it.  Yes, I hope to lose some weight on this journey, but more importantly, I want to loosen the grip that food has on my life.

So, I ask that you pray for me.  Spiritual warfare is never fun and never pretty, but it sure is rewarding!!

In Him
