I Am Powerless

I work at eating well,  similar to the goals I've followed for twenty years. At that time, I lost one hundred pounds and maintained the loss. Nevertheless, I've failed many times this last month. As usual, I use God's twelve step program.
Time and time again, I face days of eating out several meals in a row, though I believe I've got days to cook at home, I find time out of town when I eat in restaurants, and when I stay at home, my craving for sweets turns me into eating candy corn or a box full of Fiber One bars.

I'm powerless.  God is full of power and brings victory.

Never give up.
Always read my twelve steps.
Pray.
Rely on the Lord.
Though occasionally, I rise four to five pounds above my goal, but as God works in my life, I again drift down to goal weight. I'm a food addict. God is my strength.

I think again of the first three steps where I trust in God.

Honesty. 1. I admit I am powerless over food and that my life has become unmanageable.

Hope 2. Came to believe that a Power greater than myself could restore me to sanity.

Action 3. Made a decision to turn my will and my life over to the care of God as I understand Him.

Thank you, Lord, for continuous power over food addiction.

On Oct. 29, I will be the speaker for the district meeting in Wichita Falls, TX for TOPS (Take off pounds sensibly). Lord, speak wisdom through me that day.

In December, 2016, Pen-L Publishing will be releasing Divine Dining Workbook. My upcoming book will compliment my first book, Divine Dining: 365 Devotions to Guide You to Healthier Weight and Abundant Wellness.
 
The workbook will provide fourteen classes to begin a class to share problems with others to overcome compulsive overeating and lose weight. If you prefer to work at home by yourself, the new workbook will allow you to follow God's guidance at home.


Thank you, God, for confidence over my food addiction or compulsive overeating. Use me to maintain victory and touch other lives.

I am powerless. God is full of power.
