Ok so I am making my lunch right now. It consists of 6 Mrs. T's Pierogies sprayed with butter flavored pan and baked in the oven. I plan on making some steamed veggies to eat with them bringing the total for lunch to 6 points added to my three points for a nutrigrain bar before class and two apples. I"m working on huge glass of water number two and I even took my vitamin yay!
two small apples-2pts
sub total: 11pts
Points for the day: 26
points left: 15pts
So I'm going to try something new and I hope that this inspires you all. While I am not a really religious person I want to put this bible excerpt in here dealing with moderation. Keep in mind though, this is from the book of Sirach which isn't in the protestant bible. I love the book of Sirach because he gives you a basic etiquette lesson. So here we go: Sirach 11:20-
My son, hold fast to your duty, busy
yourself with it,
grow old while doing your task.
Admire not how sinners live
but trust in the LORD and wait for his light
For easy with the LORD
suddenly in an instant to make a poor man rich.
God's blessing is the lot of the just man
and in due time his hopes bear fruit
Say not: What do I need?
what further pleasure can be mine?
Say Not: I am Independent
What harm can come to me now?
The day of proseperity makes one forget adversity
Honestly, that really puts stuff into perspective for me. I shouldn't envy the fact that people can eat whatever they want and i have to count everything that goes into my mouth. If i count now I dont have to worry about getting heart disease later in life or any other awful disease for that matter. yeah it was easy to lose that first bit of weight, but I can't let that make me think this whole journey is going to be an easy one. I can't say that I dont need to track my points because obviously that has been disasterous for me thus far, I am not independent I need help and I need to keep that in perspective.
Until Next time....
