The Final Chapter
I faced a major wake up call this summer with the premature death of my brother plus I turned 65. I've battled this weight issue since I was 7 years old. God really brought conviction that the time was now to make the major lifestyle changes.
I've lost 43 lbs since Aug 30,2010. Here's the plan.
1. Eat hungry to satisfied. ALL THE TIME
2. Use a small plate (7") or 1-2 cup bowl.
3. Intuitive eating- portions usually end up 1- 2 cups total.
Because I follow Principle 1 most of the time, there is little room for unhealthy choices. I did WW for years & for the 1st 2 months this time. It gave me a clear sense of portions, calories, nutrients etc.
I'm probably 1200- 1500 calories per day. Most importantly I'm experiencing peace with food, myself & getting healthier every day.
This change has also been an incredible faith journey I have felt the Father's leading moment by moment.
This Final Chapter of my story may be few or many years but it will be a story of His provision, faithfulness & love.
LORD, You have assigned my portion and my cup. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.
