I loved to smoke but it didn't serve me anymore in this new phase of life. To this day, I have never had the urge again to smoke. I thank God for that.
A few years after that, I started to put on weight. I've always exercised one way or another, but because I love food and eat mostly what I like (sweets and carbs), I have put on more weight than I care to have.
For the past few years I've decided to lose 10 - 12 lbs., but I just can't stay committed. I start fine and then return to my old eating habits.
During my devotional time this morning, when I commune with God, the question came to my mind....why am I not able to succeed at this goal? Why do I make excuses in my mind to eat what I know will keep me exactly where I'm at?
And....why was I able to quit smoking (without much of a struggle)....but not able to stick to eating healthier?
In this morning's conversation with God, I asked for help with this issue. Maybe I've been trying to do it all on my own. I'm not sure. I am open to receive strength, guidance and insight to succeed.
