“Taste buds, you aren’t the boss of me!”
I read that quote in the Made to Crave devotional, and my back got a little straighter.
Last night my taste buds were the boss of me, and today I still have a tummy-ache 21 hours later.
I loved the thought in the devotional that the WHOLE of me should make my eating decisions, not just my tastebuds. After all, my tummy didn’t want me to over-eat on heavy food like I did last night; it wanted a nice, big salad to balance that sesame chicken and rice. Those few extra pounds left around my middle were hoping for self-control ’cause they really want to be gone. And my mind wanted to continue the journey to looking really great for my daughter’s wedding.
So today as I nurse my bloated stomach I’m reminding those taste buds who is in control!
How about you?
Is a part of you running the whole of you?
Let’s take control!
Note: Still haven’t had time to dig into my weight loss journal so we can return to the daily chronicling, but didn’t want to leave you neglected too long, so I thought I’d share briefly what I’m thinking today. Hope to get back on track with the journal soon.
