Day one and all I’ve had was a cup of cranberry juice, and a hot cup of lemon tea with honey and cinnamon. As I watched my family feast on chicken parmesan for dinner, and slather butter all over their french bread, I thought..WOW, that looks absolutely DISGUSTING!! I’m honestly wondering how did I allow my family to get like this! Everyone seemed so happy, I looked at my children’s feet under the table and they were swinging back and forth with pure joy! It was as though they were getting high, and really, if you think about it, they were!! The bread and pasta were given them sugar highs! I thank God that I did a pre-fast, where I gave up breads and meats, or else, I’m sure that I may have lost my resolve.
My husband asked me if I could just fast for half of the day, and immediately, sadly, I CONSIDERED it! Moments before that my youngest daughter who is 13, suggested that I at least eat one salad a day. It’s just day one and it’s already begun…the temptation to throw in the towel and continue to eat my way into an early grave! I can not, WILL NOT, let temptation win this time! I’m going to fight this battle one day at time, and I know that with God’s help, I will be victorious!!
