Just pure Gluttony 🙄

Good morning beautiful people! Let’s discuss the term gluttony.

The dictionary states that Gluttony is habitual greed or excess in eating. It has also been said that gluttony was one the seven deadly sins. Nevertheless this can not be found in the Bible. However Gluttony is defined in the Bible as excessive eating. Plus it do happen to appears alongside the word drunkenness. So you can say that gluttony is someone who eats more than what is considered as healthy or eats excessively and that such behavior is considered sinful. I have to also say that gluttony is something that someone does all the time and is not something that happens every once in a while.

I know by now you are staring at the page and wondering why am I talking about this. Well give me a sec I am getting there.

Gluttony is something I did and still fight with every day, every hour and every second. I walk in the kitchen and I think about eating something and I am not even hungry. Drive by a restaurant and I think about what I could eat there and here is the problem I don’t be hungry….I just want it because it is accessible to me.

Gluttony is just overeating even when you are full. Take for instant I only put a spoonful of food of each item on my plate. Even though my mind is saying “Girl load that plate up you know Big boy going to eat all that food up”. However I am learning to controlled my mind and not let my mind tell me to overeat it. Because is is a mind game and our stomach were redesigned to tell us when when we are full. All we got to do is just stop and use our newly remanufactored stomach correctly. But naw here comes that good old gluttony trying to tempt us yet again. It is in my own personal opinion that food addictiveness is just as bad being addicted to drugs and alcohol. I mean man sometimes I eat just to eat. For instance I can go into the kitchen to get a glass of water and come back with a bag of popcorn, peanut butter and crackers for no apparent reason at all. I Just want to eat and I know I am not hungry. With any kind of diet…. gluttony is aways knocking at the your door whispering your name tempting you. Stay strong people and focus on meeting your goals. We can do it second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour until those learned behaviors are changed. Also please do not give up if you do over eat. Just refocus and start again. Learn what was your trigger that made you do it the last time and ignore it the next time. And Oh boy I promise you there will be a next time. Stay grounded and learn from you.

Peace, love and Happiness

My journey is only beginning

Hello beautiful People! I was discussing my weight loss goals with a friend and explaining how I want to have abs in my mummy tummy. I know, I know you are rolling your eyes and saying not again. Why do this Heifer keep talking about abs that she will never have? You best believe I am going to tell you why! It is simple….I want to know that I can do it. I want to defie all odds, that a 40’s something years old woman who use to weight around 340 pounds now has abs! I want to show other people who are struggling with their own weight that we can do it! We can be that person we all dream about. Now realistically I don’t know if my lose skin will let me have abs. But I be doggone I am going to try. If I an only able to feel them through the skin.

I believe we have to take what we are given and lay it out on the table and figure out how to make the most out of it. It is sort like grapes…you can do so many different things with grapes. Such as making grape wine, grape jelly, grape juice, grape salad and other things from grapes. Basically you are able to take one product and expand it in so many directions. My weight is the same way. I don’t want to just lose weight and look and feel good for me. I want to motivate others to lose weight also. I want to spread my positively letting other know about the benefits of losing those extra pounds. I want to take my weight loss and make my self grow in all kinds of directions. Showing all the positive things I gained from it. Now don’t get me wrong I know there are also negative things from my weight loss but the good outweigh the bad tremendously! There is just so much more that I can do now and I am happy to say having Gastric Bypass surgery change my life for the better.

Love, Peace and Happiness’
