At Weight Watchers last week a lady said that she had made a goal for herself during the holidays. It was a goal that would be carrying her through the holiday season. She was going to try to stay the same weight, These weeks ahead had always proved to be very hard for her. She felt that if she remained the same and did not gain then she would have succeeded. The Leader thought that was a good idea.
I have thought about this and prayed about it for the days since the meeting. I have come to the conclusion that, that is what I am going to try and do. Rather than worry about losing, I am making it my goal to just stay the same. I am hoping and praying if I get myself some liberty then I will not gain. I know my weakness. When our family gets together there is always lots of fun. We are a family who enjoy eating. So, I am thinking that what I have done in past years has not worked, I will try a new way. I will not put any pressure on myself to lose but just not overeat and then my weight will remain the same or who knows,God willing, I might even lose a pound.
I am praying that I have made the right decision. I feel at peace with it. I am just putting a rest on counting points and thinking about food all the time. I will just pay attention to my hunger and when I feel myself getting comfortable then I will stop eating. I will watch the amount of sweets that I eat but will not keep them out of my diet. A rest in music is a rhythmic silence. I will have a silence of making food my thought of the day during this time and will enjoy the peace and joy of the season with my family and friends. I still would like for you to pray for me as I will for you.
I will be back each week with news of that week. I will still be attending WW meetings and looking to God for strength to do what is right. I hope you all have a good week. connie
