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 […]

A Fresh View of Zero

I’ve noticed that, as I’m getting close to zero ~ truly hungry, but not starving ~ anxiety rises up in me. If I’m busy and my mind is occupied, anxiety is less likely to happen, but it often does.  I obviously need the Lord to renew my heart and mind regarding zero. So I thought […]

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, […]

Patience & Perspective

Love is patient, but I’m not. Oh, I can patiently wait in a grocery line. I patiently listen when my son discusses the latest video game. I’m patient while I hold the door for an elderly person who walks at a snail’s pace. But I’m not patient with myself when it comes to losing weight. That’s because […]

Counterfeit Hunger

Many months ago (before I found out I was pregnant with Baby #3), I discovered something that changed my outlook on my Thin Within journey. It was sort of like a paradigm shift.  I’ll sum it up in two words: counterfeit hunger. It’s obvious that I’ve known about such a thing through my journey of […]

What Are You Hungry For?

My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. – Psalm 84:2 Years ago, there was an advertisement on television featuring Andy Griffith and his big toothy grin. Smiling ear-to-ear in his inimitable way he asked, “What are you hungry for when […]

Crash and Burn – SURVIVED!

Have you ever eaten something at a meal when you were at “The Perfect Zero,” only to feel what seemed like moments later like you had a HUGE blood sugar dive? I call this the “Crash and Burn” phenomenon. I know many people are  concerned about waiting for physical hunger for fear they will experience […]
