Willpower & all that jazz.

22 Jan

So first & foremost i have to get better with blogging daily. A few days or even sometimes a week will go by and i’ll be like “oh crap i haven’t blogged!” lol working on it guys! but thanks for continuing this journey with me. i’m probably the most fickle, up and down person you follow but i know i will get it right one of these days. anywho! last time i spoke to yall i was doing my two shake and a meal diet and it just wouldn’t work LOL i ate and ate and ate.  when it came time for dinner i ate super large meals to make up for the ones i didn’t have for breakfast and lunch SMH. In the process, i began to read a book called ‘ Women, Food, and God ‘ by Geneen Roth…and lets just say there’s been a lot of self reflection going on. The book goes into compulsive eating, our reasons for eating, etc. I will post a pic of it and also be giving some daily insight on some of the things i’m reading about. Long story short, I need to figure out my real problems and remove food as a distraction. It’s much more spiritual than i can explain in this blog…but i can say that yesterday was day 1, and i told myself i would pray whenever i wanted food and i have never prayed so much in one day LOL! it was very difficult. They say the first three days of the fast/detox are the hardest. on day 2 now & just had my breakfast…Passion fruit Juice (yum :/) i will be leaving the house today which means i will be passing fast food etc…YIKES. but i have to stay strong and every day remind myself that no one said it would be easy…only possible.

Praying my hunger doesn’t outweigh my willpower,

    I really liked the book, “French Women don’t get Fat,” to help me adopt a healthy attitude to food and eating. Then, later (just after xmas this year) I found the 17-day diet. Both have helped me successfully curb my appetite and enjoy good food at the same time! Weight is nearly back to normal!

      I heard about that book! definitely going to give it a read. My journey is more spiritual than about the weight, but weight is definitely a reflection! Thank you for your feedback!

        Faith must really help with the will power thing. For me, the only one who can help me with that is, well, me… And believe me, it’s an effort 🙂
