There is this ancient story of a woman, She was at the end, there was NOTHING left. She was not only desperate, She felt so empty, there was "just a little oil left"...Nothing to do anything with, really. She was in such a scary place, the creditors were banging on her door, threatening to take her very children, the dearest thing to her heart. I cannot conjure up a more threatening experience.
Then... the solution walked by
A man, carrying the solution. A suggestion really. He told her to go and borrow every container she could...and then to pour out all that she had...and...and then sell THAT...
Of course if you have ever heard this story, you know it was a miracle, in her pouring, the oil multiplied, over and over until all the glass jars were full.
ALL she had to do was to give WHAT SHE HAD LEFT... Give that! Why did she respond? Because it was her kids! She was trying to keep her kids!!!
She did have ONE last try in her! She did have just a little bit left to give and SHE GAVE IT!
This story is MY story. I'd used food to the point of obesity, and worst than the physical damage was the emotional and mental damage. I had lost it all deep inside. I was at the point where if I didn't wake up the next morning, I was ok to go. There was nothing holding me here (except my child).
I'd stopped living and had given up. Food had taken me that low.
Maybe this is you? You are just barely holding on. You are even past going through the motions. Food has taken such control it's left you beyond obese. It's left you HOPELESS.
I believe that there is still something inside you can pour out! I totally believe it! One last effort! One more "give it a try"...
So, You have crossed my path...I'm the ONE with the solution!
I removed controlling foods, sugars and starches
I found community (a free facebook diet group) and hung on for dear life
I slowly regained control and confidence
I said Yes to LIFE and LIVING again..
and I help others do the same.
This isn't a story about weight loss, though I did lose weight, it's a story about coming BACK TO LIFE after having lost my hope! It's a story about changing food and it changed everything.
