Healed of Emotional Eating!

Saturday, October 21, 2017

There is so much to say. On August 28, 2017 during prayer with Jesus, I knew that I needed to cut off the connection of tv with food. I've spent my entire life eating this way. BUT I knew that was a clear message from God. So, I did! WOW! What a freedom I now eat at the table with no tv or social media. Then, I get up from the table and enjoy the rest of my life! Secondly, I did something else. I began to write a "Living Manifesto." This word came up during my time with Jesus, and honestly I didn't exactly know what it meant. I now know that it is a statement of principles that clearly share what you believe. A manifesto is a call to ACTION. A manifesto causes the listener to evaluate the gap between what he/she believes and how he/she is living life. This manifesto is "living" because it changes from day to day. My manifesto is filled with "life" because its filled with God's word. In it I also apply God's word with statements of faith and truth. For example, "I am losing weight every week and every month until I am a 100's girl in July 2018 or sooner. I am outwardly and inwardly what I was born to be: a slim, 100's girl, full of excellent health and energy with joy, Jesus Love, and power from the Holy Spirit." At the writing of this entry I have been on this journey for over 50 days. Guess what? This entry is PROOF that IT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME. God has healed me from the day I cut off the tv from the food and I began being a Manifesto Girl. You check in with me each month. All the glory goes to JESUS! I'm going all the way to the finish and then I start a new manifesto of maintenance. But also, I"m believing that God will use me to share my story and that I will pray and lay hands on addicted people who will get free because of the Love and Power of Jesus Christ. "So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." 1 Corinthians 10:31

    I always thought it hurt the testimony of a Christian to be obese (even though I am also in that category.) It shows that there is something missing in our lives, either a void we try to fill with food or some other lack of control (gluttony? sloth?) He may be preparing you to live as a visible testament to the victory!

    AMEN-AMEN-AMEN!!! I need to write this 'Manifesto' as well and get serious about my weight loss.
    I too eat snackage in front of the TV at times. It is a habit. I have to have a talk with my Saviour about this and other eating habits! You INSPIRE me.

    Amen. Thank you Fit and Faithful, and Thank You Jesus!
