I started a new bible study this morning that I think is going to help me break this food addiction. It's called M&M and it stands for Memorizing and Meditating (of course referring to the Word of God). We have a verse that we will be studying each week.
At the top of the list of things to do to help you memorize it is: CHEW IT, taste it, savor it, roll it around in your mouth. Wow.. does that answer prayer for me. Every time I'm tempted to eat something just for the fun of it or because it tastes good, I can chew on God's word instead. It seems so simple.. and I really think it can work.
Our first verse is from 2 Corinthians 5:7 (NIV) "For we live by faith, not by sight." That's exactly what I need to be chewing on right now. I need to regain the faith in my ability to lose the weight. And I need to regain my connection with my Father in heaven. I believe that I can accomplish both of these things through the M&M study.
My good friend Jillian Capobianco is doing a story on me and this blog tomorrow morning on WIS News 10. It'll be on the Sunrise show sometime between 4:30 and 7:00 am. Please watch and let me know what you think.
