Staying on Plan Gives Me Strength
Saturday, August 26, 2017
I have not been physically hungry for ages. There are times I want to eat -- though very rarely now. But it is nearly always wrapped around my feelings. I am going through a divorce, so you can likely imagine the ups and downs of all this "stuff."
For those that cannot (do not?) accept my food plan, I sometimes try to explain that you wouldn't tell an alcoholic, "Oh it's Christmas, just have ONE drink"" or anything like that. Nor would you say, "Oh, just drink in moderation!" Still, some just don't get it -- or refuse to.
For all the years I have felt powerless over so much, I must say I am feeling more empowered as of late. Staying on plan keeps me feeling SOOOO strong! No one can tell me what to eat or what not to eat. Sometimes they want to argue with me, but I have done the research - I AM the research. The research for my own body, anyway.
It's tough going through all that I am facing, and there is tons of uncertainty.. and fear, too. But the one thing I DON'T have to "worry" about now is if there is a plan that works for me. In truth, this is about the only thing I CAN be sure of. And in its way, it is so very comforting. I actually have something I CAN count on! So I am holding on to that.
I finally have control of something in my life, and it feels GRAND!
