Anxiously Awaiting Zero

TW TITLE GRAPHIC - Anxiously Awaiting Zero 4

My flesh machinery has really been riled up these past few days, with food loudly and persistently calling my name, like, all the time! Awaiting zero has been harder than usual. We are taught in Thin Within that overeating – eating when we aren’t hungry – can cover raw, uncomfortable emotions, thus numbing us and […]

Breaking Off the Taproot

TW TITLE GRAPHIC - Breaking Off the Taproot

I feel like I broke off a huge chunk of a taproot today! This bondage to food is like a huge tree with very long and thick taproots burrowing deep into the ground. The taproots become larger, longer, and thicker every time we eat when we aren’t hungry. The stronghold (tree and taproots) just get […]

Planting Good Seed

TW TITLE GRAPHIC - Planting Good Seed

“Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness.”   I’ve really never been thin. When I was younger I had lost weight but didn’t know how to keep it off. So I ultimately gained […]

TW TITLE GRAPHIC - 12 Quick 'n' Easy Ways to Connect

Many have found that having a prayer/accountability partner is a huge help on their Thin Within journey. And it only makes scriptural sense:”A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.” (Eccl. 4:12) Of course, the […]

Moment by Moment, Little by Little

Wanda Walker - Title graphic - Moment by Moment

  I had a pretty good day today. I’m just working to get my head back into the game. It seems like emotionally I’m a little off, like I got kicked in the gut and I’m trying to recover. I guess that comes with forgiving myself once again, which I have to say I haven’t […]

Redeeming the Apple

GRAPHIC for Redeeming the Apple

Who would’ve thought that my mind needed to be renewed about apples?!?! But God has been speaking to me about them and I am so glad! What started this string of related events was that my grandson, Jonah, came up to me one day with an apple in hand and, because I was actually at a […]

Becoming a Prudent Person 

Wanda Walker - Title graphic - Becoming a Prudent Person

.   I just read a scripture that hit me right between the eyes: Proverbs 22:3: “A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes on blindly and suffers the consequence.” I’m sad to say I was the simpleton. I really didn’t care before; I lived too long with reckless abandon. I lost […]
