This is such an awesome post! You made several points that I have been spouting for months now, especially the one about daily feasting. My family (especially my husband) has come to expect it, particularly at dinner time (the worst time to feast). It's a difficult habit to break, but I believe that with the encouragement I've received here and some other crucial reading, I am making headway and will be able to eat the healthy way long-term.
I know that for me, deciding what goes in is usually in the form of this question: "What's more important to me right now?" I'm starting to wonder if certain foods trigger my cravings in such a way that I abandon rational thought about what really IS important?! The other question that is a bad one is whether or not I'm willing to eat a certain way for the rest of my life. Sometimes that seems a bit daunting. But I'm now trying to turn that around and focus on the positive of the foods I can eat instead of thinking, "Can I really do without chocolate for the next 40 years?!?" hehehe
Okay, all venting IS allowed! It's totally helping me get through this. As a parting note, I was reminded of a little saying I used to use in different circumstances, which for me now applies to eating: "No fear lives here!" I certainly don't need to fear the future (especially since worry is a sin), and I can trust God to deal with this issue in my life just as He has many others over the years. God bless and fast on!!
