UNHOLY “goods”

Overeating!  Now there is an unholy good.

God tells us that we are his temple.  We are supposed to take care of that temple, but yet we indulge without discretion, or at least; some of us do.  I love to eat!  Controlling this habit is a constant burden for me.  It isn’t that I eat without stop.  I eat more than my body can handle for my age and height.  While I am eating, it feels right.  I stop at the time I feel I should, (without feeling like a soon to burst balloon).

I eat three meals a day, but it is too much.  I eat lots of vegetables, rice, and don’t over consume sweets, but I probably eat something sweet more days than not.

I have never had a strong metabolism.  Often, I read a comment from a woman, who still carries her high school figure say, “I was just blessed with a great metabolism!”  I want to scream, “Back in the 1700’s; a woman was consider more beautiful if she had a larger belly, and big hips!”  Well, it is true!  Just take a gander at the paintings of naked women from that era.  You’ll see.

I am physically designed to eat.  I eat to survive.  I eat to be social.  I eat for pleasure.  I eat -too much!  Why can’t I give up this unholy good?

Recently, I decided to get very serious about losing weight.  I started eating crackers during the day and only dine for dinner.  I lost an amazing two pounds in two weeks.  Hallelujah!

I guess I have just reached the age when my body only needs about 500 calories a day, to survive.  Still, how will I survive if this unholy good isn’t good to me?

I am a mother of 16 children and grandchildren. Some of them are by blood and the rest by heart. I was a foster mom for a few years and the children I cared for during that time have mostly stayed with me through the years. I love to write, read, dance, paint, and play with my animals. I enjoy dressage riding and just being in the barn. My words are my gift, as they allow you to know me as I really am. Thanks for joining me on this ride of life!

  1. Don’t worry too much! And be careful with the not eating during the day and only eating one meal a day. It can work in the beginning as it’s a new impulse you give your body but it might turn around. If that happens try to figure out the amount of food you ate when you ate the 3 meals a day. Try to split the 3 meals (and the amount) up into 5 to 6 a day. For some that works better. For me it for sure does. The thing you need to pay attention to is not to add higher amount of food but rather reduce it although you eat 5 to 6 times instead of 3.
