Today I claim success. Victory, of sorts. Though I was under a lot of stress today I did not graze. I did not make poor choices. The temptations were there...trust me; sweets, breads, rice. But I made good healthy choices today.
I fully believe its because I started my prayers this morning with this, "Father, I choose You over food. I ask that you help me to say no to the temptations." And I believe with all my heart that He is the reason I was able to do so today. The cheesecake / pie / desserts didn't even look appealing at lunch. I chose fruit. The croissants for the chicken salad looked lovely... but I was satisfied with no bread at all. Chips? No thank you. Salad? Yes, please!
It may seem like a silly post this evening, but it is my way of claiming today. Of remembering that this gift God has given me is to be taken care of properly. I am thankful and need to keep focused every moment of every day. I refuse to let food control me ever again!
Thank you God for answering my prayer!
