There is that little book there on my desk, “100 Days To Brave.” A daily devotional. One of the things at the bottom is a question. They want us to take a moment and THINK. Brilliant idea.
The big book is all 331 blogs that are here, pulled together for the book I am writing. I’m suppose to be reading what I’ve already figured out and know.
We know more than we KNOW we know. We simply forget things or deny them.
When you go to write a book you comb back through what you are carrying around on the inside. My search brought me to a point I KNEW and had misplaced.
“You know, when you eat this way you thrive, this is your food.”
I removed controlling foods. Foods I was out of control with. You KNOW…those foods you can’t stop once you start. You don’t stop when full, you stop when finished. The foods once in the house, begin talking to you until you simply eat them to shut them up. Only to find yourself on the prowl in a short time, no matter how stuffed you are. THOSE FOODS!
I know and so do you.
This morning the devotional asked me, “What thought do you have that you think God spoke to you?”
This one: “You know, when you eat this way you thrive, this is your food.”
Thank God He opened my eyes. 4 plus years down the freedom road, and there are still hills and valleys, sharp turns and long flats.
I’m Jess, I’ve been obese, depressed, isolated and an addict to carbs. I carefully removed those controlling foods and have day by day PUT MY LIFE BACK TOGETHER.
I now eat whole foods. Fresh veggies, real proteins (not bars and powders) and healthy fats. I came out of isolation and help build community that supports this way of living. We offer HOPE and HELP to others who struggle with obesity.
Our community is full of people who want to LIVE! Get back to purpose and help others because it helps them too!
