When you think deeper about what you want, it makes it easier to make decisions that lead to peace, instead of regret.
Why would we want to change anything with our physical body without consulting its Creator?
It’s one of those questions that I was afraid to ask out loud. God loves me the way that I am, right? He doesn’t care what I weigh, does He?
“If you are asking the question, ‘Should I remove (insert food here) from my life?’, you probably already know the answer.”
What’s easy to do is also easy not to do.
There will inevitably be a moment when following my plan is nearly impossible. A doctor’s appointment runs late, or a flat tire leaves me stranded for a while, or we decide last minute to go out for lunch after church. In those moments, having a strict “only eat this” kind of plan often leads to the “eh, it’s a treat meal” attitude, which leads to food choices that are far from helpful to my goal.
