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!

    The plan knows how to bring you from A to Z. You just have to follow it.That's the second part the hardest though!
    I am sorry to read you are going through a hard time and I'll be sending you positive vibes. Hang in there, you got this!

    Just got done watching a video a day on what to do to reverse alzheimers and what it really is. Guess what? Almost all the Functional Medicine doctors recommend High fat, (good fat) Keto diet. Congrats girl.

    I was thinking of blogging about the problem with the all things in moderation motto myself today. I can't do moderation. Sugar is my drug. I understand and admire your strength! Keep your head up- you got this.

    Thanks,James. Yup -- Keto (very low carb). As of today, 118 pounds dumped. 90-100 to go -- unsure what I can do.

    Glad you found your dietary path! Sounds like low carb (or Keto).

    As for your path in life, like your divorce, ... wishing you well.
