I am such a loser

I am feeling very wimpy tonight, and I feel like a major loser. I preach and teach constantly on the importance of the character trait of self-control in living the Christian life successfully. I have gone from 212 lbs to 230 lbs in 50 days, 18 lbs in 50 days, I can’t believe it. It started on our trip to Mexico to go fishing. The fishing was OK but the food was amazing, and of course because I had paid for the trip I certainly wanted to eat well. Then my birthday was on the 27th, and I had about three parties, and you know, you only have a birthday once a year, so I went off of my ”no sugar” commitment and had a bowl of ice cream. That was the first sugar I had eaten in over a year, and as long as I blew it, let’s have two bowls! Then as the pounds started adding up I would say every morning when I got on the scales, I am going to get serious tomorrow and lose some weight, and I repeated it again this morning, but tomorrow is Thanksgiving. What am I going to do!?

I don’t know about others, but I do so much better in self-control when I am up, positive, on a roll, with some momentum, some wind at my back. So what am I going to do? I am going to start on my diet on December 1st. Cool! Five more days of pigging out! No telling what I will weigh in five more days!

    Don’t do it pastor!
    Stop now on the sugar! You, of all people, have the will power to stop now. If you don’t, Dec 1 will come and you’ll say Pearl Harbor would be a better day to stop sugar. I’ll blow away the pounds! Wow, Christmas isn’t that far off and then new years day would be a great time to stop… Etc. Etc. Etc.
    Be strong. You know the pumpkin pie and ice cream will be yelling at you tomorrow. I’ll be praying you’ll resist the temptation and it will flee from you!

    So you DO know how we all feel…hahaha. Except you DO get back on that wagon and keep going and do very well. But at least you don’t get so high you can’t relate. Thanks Pastor Dee.
