New start

My goal since I have started this Journey on Jan 6, 2011 was to be healthy! I was so sick and tired of being in pain and feeling like I was way older than my real age :) I know I have lines on my face and scares of the damage that I have done to my body by over eating. I was trying on some clothes yesterday and noticed that I have more stretch marks now than after having 3 children . But I don't care I am not a edited photo shopped picture. I am a real mother ,wife, sister,daughter. Everything about me is a part of me a part of my past and my present. On my hands I bare the scars of all the cooking, cleaning and work I have done on our home and each one I bare with love. I will never look 20 again and that is just fine with me I am better now than I was in my 20's . Dear friends we have to embrace every moment that we are given we have to take care of our body's and make sure we are giving it the best food the best care that we can we are of great value to our Creator and to our family's and they need us to be healthy not sick and whiny . We need to be full of love for each other and full of life we need to be showing the world love and compassion and in order to do so we must take care of our temples.What good will we be to anyone if we are always sick and complaining about everything. We will have hard days and as time goes on we will have sick days and pain and and we will loose loved ones and the struggles of this world will happen .We will get scares on our body's and our hearts. But we have to move on and keep moving one day we will be free from all this we know this with out a doubt. But while we are here let us do our part.
We are just about to start a new year I posted this quote on my facebook page
"We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day." ~Edith Lovejoy Pierce
So I ask this ? what are we going to write in our books? :)

Today is the day to say NO thank you :)

The word "No" to anyone who has a eating issue is the 2nd part of taking back our life's. We have to learn to say it and mean it! You might be at a party and a friend or family member might ask you if you want some pie or cake, you say no thank you and then it starts " come on just a little it won't hurt you " or they just get mad at you and say fine don't take my cake I will give it to someone who will appreciate all the time I took to make it. So you can see how this could be hard :/
Well , Think about it like this if you new someone had a drug issue you would not go out and buy it for them when they were trying to get clean. IT IS THE SAME FOR A FOOD ADDICTION! but for us we cannot get away from food we have to learn to say NO! Food is at home,church,party's,malls, everywhere! But food is not the enemy is it? God gave us food to sustain us we are the ones who are not happy with what was given .
"And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat."
Gen 1:29
Food is not our enemy .
"Like a city whose walls are broken down is a man who lacks self-control."
Proverbs 25:28 -
"The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility."
Proverbs 15:33
"He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding."
Proverbs 15:32
We are our own enemy!
We have to study and learn about what are the best food for our body's . We have to say No to anything that we know will make us slip or just really is not the best choice. I will not be the one to tell you what to eat and what not to eat . But I will share with you this the more close you can bring your diet to the first diet that God had Adam and Eve on you will feel better and your food cravings will not be the same at all. Some good books and links are
The Makers Diet by Jordan Rubin
I hope you will take some time to do something good for yourself and look at the links and even look up your own and find the tools that you need to live a healthy happy life:) Tomorrow I will tell a bit about my story :) I just felt it was urgent to tell you it's ok for you to say "NO" since it's that time of the year when we have a over abundance of food! Love to you all !

So what can we do if we find ourselves loving food in a not so healthy way .Well, for me it was getting online for around 7 hours one day reading and finding out about juice fasting. The reasons why I overeat all my past hurt feelings all the people who have ever done me wrong none of that really matters. What does matter is that I asked God to help me and to forgive me for using food to replace Him . I Gave Him everything and when I said Amen I left it with Him. And did not turn around to pick some of it back up and put it in my pocket for later. For me when I even start to think I am going to eat to cover my feelings I really do have to just say NO and move on. We all have to start saying NO we all have something it might not be food .Anything that we put above God is getting in out way of our relationship with him. And we will never be happy He is our Creator He knows what is best for us and He gave us all gifts and each of us is so very unique.
So what can we do ? We have to repent and ask for forgiveness.
Finally, I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide them. I said to myself, ‘I will confess my rebellion to the LORD.’ And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone” Psalms 32:5
Oh, what joy for those whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sins are put out of sight. Yes, what joy for those whose sin is no longer counted against them by the Lord" Romans 4:7-8
Did you see that "All my sin is gone" tell yourselves that Loves.
I will blog about saying 'NO' tomorrow but, for today know that you are LOVED and that your Creator only wants the best for you and that all that you have ever gone through up to this point is for a reason . Well, we will talk about that also and I will talk about some of what went on while I was doing my 1st juice fast.

Today is almost over and I just found this my old blog space that I had forgotten all about.Well I think I will start using it again and I hope to do some good with it this time. So I have asked myself why would anyone even care to know my story? Well, God will send those who need to hear it and that is all I need to know.
So here I go I started out using food to cover up my feelings to fill a space that was empty in my life . I used it as a lover and in so doing I made myself sick. Food taste good and it has a power of making you feel better when you are down it is much like a drug . But as I have found out it will also take over your life make you sick and can kill you. Some of the verses that I have found to be helpful to make me open my eyes are the ones below.
Philippians 3:19
Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things
Proverbs 23:2
And put a knife to your throat if you are given to appetite.
Proverbs 23:21
For the drunkard and the glutton will come to poverty, and slumber will clothe them with rags.

Well, what can be said God has given us a warning being a glutton is not a good thing. So what can we do? Well, that I will talk about tomorrow...
