- Progress Report month #3: 2lbs gained totaling 9lbs lost thus far
Is there a cure for emotional eating? I get cravings when I’m happy, sad, mad, stressed, you name it. And I’m talking about the kinds of cravings that are greasy, sweet, loaded with all the junk that causes clogged arteries and could send you into a diabetic coma! Is there a cure for me? I mean I understand that it’s my choice to give into the cravings or redirect that desire to something else such as exercise, reading, etc. but it’s just not that simple for me. I’m starting to think it would just be easier if could I really teach and program my body to LOVE and CRAVE foods that are healthy and fueling to my body. Like my reality is I’m going to eat, right now I can’t see how I can stop eating- so since I can’t, I at least need to eat what’s good for me. Anybody with me? Or at this point are you laughing and calling me crazy! I’m trying to be real with you ladies and I really need some help! My failed efforts lets me know I’m not able to do it on my own any more. I know I’m not going to wake up tomorrow morning and be cured (or will I?). How much of this disease is simply me being disobedient to God… am I cursed? I’ve just got a lot thoughts floating in my head right now (which has me currently craving a chocolate chocolate chip muffin- Lord help me!) and I need a sure-able cure! So ladies please be in prayer with me, that I’m able to fight this disease and turn my unhealthy craving habits into a fueling frenzy for my temple and that surely God will provide my way of escape!
I’ve shared this scripture before but feel it’s necessary for my own benefit to repeat it again:
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. 1 Corinthians 10: 13 (ESV)
If you have any tips and/or suggestions, please share them. I’m sure there are other women that could benefit from our discussion. Thanks in advance ladies!
