Arguing With Myself

Maybe I’m the only one who has conversations with myself.   Arguments, too, which I always win.  Funny how that works.

So while we were talking in the grocery store on Saturday, myself and I, I wanted to make the food behave instead of myself.  Old habits clinging to life in the wrinkles of my brain made me want to choose expensive and unhealthy “diet food” instead of real food.  Standing there, I realized that I was fixating over food, yet again, and I resolved, yet again, to stop that.  I refuse to obsess over the food or the scales.  I am unanimous with this decision…with myself.   

I will say one more thing on food:  Yesterday (while eating out) I was reminded of something that happened the last time I gave up sugar.  Food tastes so much better.  

As I start my Monday morning talking about food obsession, the headlines this morning tell me that there are real troubles in this world.  My eating habits are not one of them. 
Today, I choose to focus on praying for friends and family who need prayer, for folks in this winter storm, and for the people who are dealing with the devastating aftermath of the latest acts of terror from ISIS.

I hope your day is a good one.

Stay warm!

    1. Nope. I had to come to work, but we delayed opening due to icy conditions. We are off on Friday....which gives me a long weekend for my birthday. :)

  3. Boy, this strikes close to home! Seems I've had those same conversations in those same aisles. Just hope my lips don't start moving :)

    Of course, you're right about what's going on in the Big Picture. I appreciate your prompt to prayer!

  4. Well, this is a timely post for me to read! I've been thinking lately about the advice I read somewhere to "stop having conversations with people not in the room". Yet you took it one step further, and included conversations with myself. ha ha, hadn't even thought about it that way.

    You are so right... we need to stop obsessing with thoughts about ourself, and pray for those in real need. Guilty here as charged....

    I must be slow. I FINALLY got it, how you came up with the name for your new blog Committed Thoughts. I read and re-read the little subtitle... just... wow, what a wonderful promise.
