You know that song by James Brown?
Well, I feel better–much better, and that is making a very big difference in my world.
It is not about the weight so much.
It is about saying no to the endless gnoshing–about not being full when I sit down to supper and about strengthening that resistance muscle. (The idea for a “resistance muscle” came to me from this book–more on that later.) I made cookies yesterday without eating the dough! I made fish sticks for supper without eating several right off the pan!
(Fish sticks are a particular weakness.)
And that is all I’m going to say for now. We are getting ready today for tomorrow’s great feast and I need to go track down a Phase I treat to prepare. (Don’t worry–the rest of the family gets the good stuff!) I have never made it all the way through Phase I, which is a two-week period meant to jump-start the weight loss and–more importantly–nip those rabid cravings in the bud.
Today is Day 10; only four more to go.
And then…and then…I start phasing in the wheat & sugar, fingers crossed that I can still be strong.
“It is Christ in you, the hope for glory. It is He whom we proclaim, admonishing everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone perfect in Christ. For this I labor and struggle, in accord with the exercise of His power within me.” (Colossians 1:27-29)
