Facing the Music...

There is, in theory, nothing wrong with eating pizza.

So, why do I feel so bad?

I guess it's because of WHY I ate the pizza.  I've been fighting this cold for over a week now.  It has wiped out all my energy.  Nothing is getting done.  And I've been getting depressed about it all.

Tonight I gave into that depression and ate pizza.  Too much pizza!  I ate out of emotion, not any other reason!  And, while the pizza tasted good, it wasn't worth it. 

The only thing to do at this point is to acknowlege what I did and move on.  Make a mental note:  eating did not help me feel any better.  I still have a cold.  I still have no energy.  I'm still not getting anything done.  I am still depressed.

But I refused to be depressed about eating.  This is a learning opportunity.  A little reminder of what doesn't work.  Probably a bit of a setback in my next weigh-in.  I can begin again.  Now.  This moment.  Every moment is a chance to start fresh.  I forgive myself.  I have weekly points.  This, too, shall pass. 

His mercies.  New.  Each morning.



  1. I am so sorry to hear that you still aren't feeling better. Keep drinking lots of fluids and take your vitamins. I'll be thinking of you and praying for a quick recovery.

  2. Hi Cindy,

    A rare splurge. Emphasis on the "rare". You are so disciplined, I'm sure you have a whole pizza worth of weekly points saved up.

    Lam 3:22-24

    "Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed,
    for his compassions never fail.
    They are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness.
    I say to myself, "The Lord is my portion;
    therefore I will wait for him."

    Interesting to look at the lines before that wonderful verse, "Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed." The pizza may be consumed, but we are not. :) And look--He's our portion! I love His Word and You.

    Love you,
    Your sister
