So, thinking about all of that...it gets a bit, for lack of a better word, heavy. So, since I need to find humor in everything, I started thinking about meetings "Hi, My Name is Tonyne and I'm an Emotional eater" and then I came up with the idea to write a Serenity Prayer...for us. For the people like me, the emotional eaters, the binge eaters and the just plain old over eaters. So, here it is:
God grant me the serenity To refuse those things I should not eat;
Energy to be active, even when tired
And the ability to abide by both daily.
Counting one calorie at a time;
Walking one mile at a time;
Learning not to comfort emotions with food;
Turning away the cravings of sinful desserts
As tempting as I may find them
Trusting that my hard work will pay off
If I just stick to my plan
So that I may be healthy & happy in this life
and find a pair of jeans that fit
in any store I choose to shop in.
