Day 46-50 Weigh-in #8

Two weeks in a row I struggled with losing weight and started gaining weigh back.  I felt horrible, ashamed and embarrassed.  Well, yesterday I weighted myself and I lost 5.6 pounds!  Whew!  What a load off.  I ate some junk but nothing close to the amound I ate in the past two weeks also I haven't been eating a lot of bread.  I worked out three times last week and monitored what I ate like I did when I started this journey.  I'm very proud of myself.

I know sometimes I might have ups and downs but I really didn't want to be one of those people who lost weight and gained it back several times.  I really wanted to be consistent but life happens sometimes and just like Paul said in the Bible, you must die daily.  I know this might sound silly but what I must do is "kill" is my old self in order to accomplish this goal.  Just like a cigarette smoker, alcoholic, or any type of abuse done to this temple, I have to fight to stay alive and away.  Wow am I really like an alcoholic?  That's harsh but it's true.  My alcohol is junk food and no matter how hard I try to walk away from my bottle in the shape of a flat, eight inch circle, it calls me back for another taste.  If I continue to go back and over consume, I'm drunkenly full with junk food and the sugar, instead of alcohol, stays in my system for several days.  I think I need OWA, Over Weight Annonymous lol.  Maybe I need to take my sin to the alter in church and smash it like preachers have smokers smash their cigarettes.  I would have a lot to carry!
