Well it's the Holidays, and it is officially the WORST 2 months for "morbidly obese" people who have/had the Binge Eating Disorder. It's the time of year where deserts are present everywhere you look, candy is around every corner, endless amounts of pie's and cookies. The temptations, I admit are strong and often times very enticing. I admit as well that I am nervous. 2 years ago at this time of year I was shoving cookies in my mouth every second I possibly could without getting caught. Last year I was a Mercy Resident, although I was home for Christmas I didn't do bad for the self-control part! But here, this year. I am on my own. I won't be going back to Mercy in a couple weeks where someone will ask me how I "did" over the holidays. This year it's just me and God. And God see's EVERYthing.
I love these Holidays! They mean so much to me, but they also are a huge testing period for me. If you think about me, I could sure use some prayer over the next few weeks. There seems to be so much need and I know your prayer list are probably already 10 pages long sometimes, so I totally understand if you don't. I won't know anyways :) haha! But please pray that God will give me the courage, strength, self control, and the encouragement needed to pass these trial periods with an A+ grade! I'll take a B too but I'm aiming high. :)
