Day 18: Joy Is My Name…My Emotions Don’t Have Me!!

Fam!!  The kind of day I had today, would NORMALY cause me to dive FACE FIRST into fried wings and pizza!  I would sprinkle some bits of red velvet muffins or cake and drizzle with baked chicken with white rice. Yes, historically, I admit it, I’m an emotional eater. But that didn’t happen today…I found the exact opposite to be true.

I looked around at 10:00 pm and noticed, I barely ate at all.  Before I had supper (10 minutes ago), I was sustained by an egg, 3 pieces of fruit and plenty of cashews and peanuts…FAR FROM THE NORM FOR ME!  On top of that, PASTA entered our home (like it walked in by itself…lol) and I didn’t even try to taste a piece of a strand…I’m truly amazed at this point!!

What has this experience taught me?

  1. I don’t have to be a slave to my emotions!
  2. I don’t have to drown my emotions with food! And to tell you the truth, I was in a better place while dealing with the situation!! (I’m not sure which scientific fact I just proved! LOL!)
  3. I’m in control of this “thing”, it DOESN’T CONTROL ME!!!!
  4. My views regarding food…are evolving!!

So, what’s my name? JOY!! I’m excited that by the grace of God, He kept me! He’s making me stronger for the road before me…I so APPRECIATE HIM!!
