Stinkin' Thinkin'

I must confess that some emotional aspects of this journey are hard to overcome.  I have avoided the scales for nearly two weeks now.  I'm not sure why, but I think I was "scared" to weigh as this time of the year is usually soooo bad for me.  I found thoughts like these in my head: "Have you broken your pouch?"  "You've not been journaling...you've probably gained weight like usual."  "If you avoid the scale, you won't be disappointed." 

I bit the bullet this morning and got on the scales.  I have dropped 7.5# in 13 days!  OVER CHRISTMAS EVEN!!!  I knew I made good choices.  I knew I hadn't eaten anything I couldn't/shouldn't, but the fear of those scales had me in a headlock!  

I'm so glad I broke through that stupid head issue!  Take that you nasty nasty piece of stinkin' thinkin!


"I praise you [God] because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." ~Psalm 139:14


  1. For those of us whose weakness is food it's a hard thing. But God is bigger than our weakness. We can draw on His Power and Strength to do this.

    1. Amen, Scribbles! This whole journey has been through His Power and Strength! Thank you for the reminder that turning over the stinkin' thinkin' to God will be the best possible way to deal with it.
