-He did not say Fast Food!
I am so pumped right now. I have had another “ah-hah” moment. Processed foods, whether tagged “healthy” or tagged “fatty” in abundance are not good for me. I’ve been cooking more, saving money, and my family is gaining an appreciation for my healthier cooked meals. I want to live a long time, (even longer than a McDonald’s french fry!) and the way to do is by taking care of myself. I am putting me as a priority. This doesn’t mean I’m always first, but I am always a priority!
Weight loss this time around is changing my life, I am more active (I was already a gym fanatic) but I am finding more ways to get active in a fun way.
This PROCESS is something I will always go through, I never intend to quit losing weigh. But I have to put down alot of those processed foods, the nutritional value is much lower and I enjoy cooking fresh meals with my daughter, even if she continues to steal all of the ingredients and eat them (raw cabbage, bell pepper, carrots, fruits, you name it, she loves it).
There is also a spiritual lesson I am learning. I have a problem with the fruit of the spirit self control. I feel so blessed to have found this journey to make me happier and a better gal for Christ! I am seeing that this PROCESS is causing not only my eating to become under control, but my attitude as well. God did not make us to be greedy, but to enjoy life and live it abundantly. Cooking meals with and for my family fills my heart abundantly…………….indulging too much on fast food makes me feel bad, because I have been gifted with cooking with love, and I will continue to do so……..without alof of the PROCESSED.
(Well, except for the cheese, lol, but you get my point: decreasing my fast food intake.)
I am loving this process…………without too much of the processed!
