I love food....I mean I really love food. In fact, a month ago I told my hubby that if I was not a pastor I think I would have been a food critic. I love gourmet food. Give me some fresh mozzarella, pesto, warm focaccia, crème Brulee, rack of lamb, eggs Benedict with creamy hollandaise sauce, fresh herbs, chocolate torte, buttery brioche, Godiva truffles and I am floating on clouds of freshly whipped heavy cream in heaven. I am also then broke and not to mention getting heavy by the second. heheheheeh
Now don't get me wrong, being a food addict is serious stuff; but hey I warned you that in order to do this I have to find the joy in this. My passion for food unfortunately has gone strait to my mid-section. Needless to say, I am paying the price for it with my health.
1 Corinthians 6:19 (New International Version, ©2011)
19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;
Overcoming my addiction is very difficult; because it is the one addiction you have to keep partaking of for the rest of your life to live. There is this delicate balance of understanding how much food is appropriate for me. It takes self discipline and work everyday for the rest of my life. With God's help He is showing me that I am not my own. Each decision is important and has an effect of me and those around me. I am learning to care. I didn't use to care about what I put in my mouth....I just wanted to eat it. I feel I am in a good place with my relationship with food and getting better everyday. It is a life change for as long as I live.
