Objectionable Obligation or Inviting Opportunity?

[Inspired by Terri Graham] Am I the only one who finds it SOOOO hard to wait for a zero ~ “true hunger”? There are many things in my life that I do even though I don’t want to do them…  like doing the laundry…  dishes…  going places when I’d rather stay home…  I even shower, floss, wash my face, […]

I’m Just A Girl Who Can Say No

Sun rises on a new day, but I’m still a creature of habit. I roll out of bed and head for the scales which draws me like a Siren. Surely there’s a mistake. I wiggle my feet on the scale’s cold glass, but the digital numbers remain the same. So I drag myself to the […]

Renewing-of-the-mind Alarm

CHIRP!  The purpose of smoke alarms in our home is to let us know there is smoke hot enough, born from a fire, and that we need to get out!  The alarms tell us to find safety, and that our lives are endangered.  Their purpose is to save lives.  So when a smoke alarm’s battery runs low, […]

Failure Leads to Victory

We get so discouraged when we break a boundary.  We eat when we aren’t hungry (zero).  We blow past satisfaction (5).  We bring out that “club of condemnation” one more time (sigh). But wait!  STOP!  Pause.  Freeze it right there!  Come a little closer to the screen.  Yes, there.   Now let me tell you a little […]

Taste for Truth: An Invitation

  A few weeks ago I completed a weight-loss Bible study called Taste For Truth by Barb Raveling.  A friend of mine and I went through the study together.  We would send an email to one another each day sharing some of our answers to the study questions and just discussing what we learned in the chapter that day.  I am a […]
