Glad I didn't eat over that !

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Last night I blogged instead of feeding my face with unwanted calories and junk to stuff down my emotions. This morning's weigh in had me down 2.2 pounds, and it WAS SUCH A VICTORY!!!
I feel so good about it THAT I COULD EXPLODE WITH JOY! I feel like calling the obnoxious woman who decided to dump all over me last night (see yesterday's blog) and tell her that her attack gave me the opportunity to overcome her and march on to victory today.
I need to repeat that as a mantra, and add a few;
Every time I pass up an opportunity to stuff my feelings down with food, I have a victory over compulsive eating.
Every victory makes me stronger for the next time.
Every time I stand my ground, I stand up for ME.
Every time I stand up for me, I realize I AM WORTH SOMETHING.
I am not a depository for other people's negative feelings.
I don't have to accept other people's judgements of me.
I am a born-again child of the Living God and a vessel of honor.

Isaiah 54:17 "No weapon formed against me shall prosper, and every tongue that is raised against me in judgement I shall condemn, for such is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and I shall repay," says God." I learned this verse way back 30 years ago as a new Christian coming out of a marriage that left me feeling used, abused, and worthless. I haven't traveled and travailed this long road just to be trampled on now.

Today the reward for not eating food that I didn't need or want last night is the awareness and knowledge that come with reflection and hindsight today. I could never have realized all that I have today if I had given in to negative feelings and binging last night. In the end, I gave up so little to gain so much!

    I also love this blog and I'm going to copy it as it's just what I need myself. Congratulations on losing weight instead of emotionally eating your "feelings". Wishing you many more successes ahead and we are both much wiser now.

    Hugs,
