I did fairly well. I had eggs, toast and juice for breakfast. For lunch, however, Papa wanted to dine at one of our favorite Columbia area burger joints. RUSH'S! I ordered a regular cheeseburger basket (which comes with some of the most awesome fries you've ever put in your mouth) and root beer. For accountability purposes, I want you to know that I am aware that this was NOT the BEST choice I could have made. (I should have left off the fries, and opted for a diet coke, instead!) However, I didn't eat the entire burger, or even half of the fries. I amazed myself in practicing a "novel" concept. I STOPPED EATING when I got FULL. That is a HUGE victory for me!!
For supper, Nana cooked Chicken bog, butter beans, and corn. Buck made some of his "famous" cheese bread, and a bowl of fresh fruit salad. (The healthy kind, not made with fattening ingredients like mayo/salad dressing). I was very careful to use small portions, and ate only one small slice of bread. I did eat seconds...but not of rice. I had an extra portion of fruit salad for dessert instead of brownies or cake.
Because I have not been consistent since I started this program, and since my sweet Tammi has recently decided to begin the same study, I have decided to RE-START as of yesterday. I am so excited about this "second chance" at success, and the accountability that this blog offers.
Let's DO THIS THANG!
Taste and see that the LORD is good;
blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
Fear the LORD, you his saints,
for those who fear him lack nothing.
