40 days (12/1/10)

Well, Dec 21st is coming quickly and I haven’t made much headway with this. Hmmm, let me rephrase that, I haven’t seen the results that I thought I was going to see, yet I have still seen results. God is so funny, in everything He reminds me that He is in control and that He works on the things that He knows needs to be worked on first.  I thought that I would be able to see some physical results that would allow me to make the decision, to stick with this or not to stick with this. This is not happening, for a number of reasons, but the main one is that I chose the wrong time to do this. I was good the first week, then here came Thanksgiving week in New York, you probably know how that went. Now I’m back but catching up on writing, responding to comments, fixing problems on blog, etc.., and now it’s almost time for Christmas! Well, I haven’t seen much change but the change that I have seen is crucial. You see, during all the work and Holiday stuff, my mind is still sending out reminders about eating right and going to the gym. I mean strong reminders, like my metabolism has increased, so now I’m hungry at all the times I started eating at when I first started this. Even when I want to stay up late to work on my writing, I’m getting sleepy between 10pm -11 pm and can’t see straight by 12am and HAVE to go to bed. I used to be able to stay up till 3am with no problem. Oh yeah, and the gym, I actually miss it, like miss going and ready to go back! So I said all of that to say that, although I don’t see any physical changes, the main thing that needed to change did, My Mind! Isn’t that just like God, when you’re looking for something tangible, He does it in the Spirit/Mind? He knows that, if you can change a person’s mind, the physical will automatically follow. I guess that’s why I trust Him. So needless to say, thus far even with no outer proof of change, I think I might continue to do this past the 40 days. Starting to sound like I’m living a fasted life, which sounds like the title of a book I could write. “smile”
