Fasting is abstaining from something, usually to focus more on thoughtful things. Or to make your rump less rumpier.
I told my husband I was planning to go sugar free for thirty days and he helpfully suggested I do it for Lent, for 40 days. I started Sunday because that was when I felt passionate and motivated. Thus the 30 or 43ish days part. I don't like to follow rules much I guess.
Yeah, I wasn't sure if I would post about this.
I thought: Who cares about you and your sugar addiction issues Heather? Who cares that some days you most definitely love something sugary more than you love Jesus? And that you can talk more about the food than about anything that Matters? No one, that is who.
Maybe if I share about the struggle someone else will say : YEAH! Me TOO!
And maybe their step will be a little lighter and their mouth a little emptier because I shared my mess out loud.
I eat a lot of sweets. Like three or four desserts a day on average. Once I have one bite....ol Lordy I want to gobble MORE. I am not particularly noticeably overweight but I should be. I could be. And I do not like this out of control part of my life being in my life. I feel weak and since it is completely in my own control I feel even worse about it.
I will be sharing some of the highlights of my food journey I think you might be able to use. If you care that somedays I love sugary things more than I love myself. And I am pretty happy with who I am. I just want to be....unsweetened.
Et tu? Got any foodie issues you would like to fast from for a while?
