At our core we were made for purpose. We do better when we have purpose because it gets us moving in a direction. It gives us impetus to rein ourselves in. We come under the restraint of a vision. There is a wise saying, "people perish without vision"...
Looking back at my life 3 years ago. Food was my life! It was the main player and central figure of all my thoughts. "What will I eat for breakfast?" "Which fast food line will I go through today?" "What AM I HUNGRY FOR?" "What's for lunch?" "Where did I put my snack?" "Let's order in for dinner!"
Food left me distracted, discouraged, and disconnected!
I too tired to have a purpose or dream. Obesity smothered my dreams. Obese people will tell you this. Our need for food rolled over all other needs, even the need for life, health and purpose.
Then I went on the Lowcarb diet (yes again). I set out to do it to support my cousin and quickly embraced it, so I could stay strong for her. I didn't care or believe for me, but I did for her! I like lowcarb foods and I truly needed a break at 230lbs from what I was doing to myself. I started for her, and slowly made the shift to caring again about me.
My life was blank! I'd given up dreams, friends, and a future with purpose. I was so tired all the time, hurting all over all the time. I had zero confidence and certainly very little self-control. I had disappeared in plain site and disconnected.
Changing my food, changed ALL OF THAT...Slowly food got quiet, hunger went away and I was left with energy to burn! I'd opened my fat stores and my body was using that to fuel me. Hope came back, and dreams started to reappear.
I started dreaming again! Listening to the inner voice again! And BELIEVING!
I've got dreams for Find Your Food. I've got dreams for "She said Yes!" and "Yes! Groups"...I'm living in those dreams now...what in the world happened?
I changed my food and it changed EVERYTHING!
