Stuffing Your “Stuff”

image

Doesn’t that look good? 

I remember what that tastes like and I also remember how icky I felt after I ate it.

According to the nutritional information on the web, this cheeseburger has the following:

820 calories
47 grams of fat
20 grams of saturated fat
1510 milligrams of sodium

Okay…That’s JUST the burger and doesn’t count the fries and soda you get with a combo….Which is a #2 by the way!

Is it convenient to go through the drive thru and not have to worry about cooking or cleaning up?

Does the burger taste amazing and satisfy you? 

Did you have a coupon? 

Did you have an awful day? 

Do you deserve a break today? (Oops….Wrong burger joint!)

I can answer “YES” to all those questions.

I always liked the title of the movie, “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?”  I often ask myself, “What’s eating Sheri Ann?”

What is really going on inside my heart or within my day that made it easier to stuff my emotions with comfort food?

In the past, I told myself it wasn’t that big of a deal.  But, and this is not just about my weight, it is a very big deal.

Anything that we use…drugs, alcohol, gambling, food….to numb our feelings is toxic to us.

Not only toxic to our bodies, depending on our addictions,  but it’s toxic to our heart….The place where life resides.  Eventually, our stuff…whatever we use…starts to literally crowd our hearts!

Truth is, the more you stuff your stuff and numb your emotions, the more toxic you become.

Jeremiah 29:11 says that God has a plan and a hope for my life.

Somewhere along the way, I started stuffing my “stuff” and with that lost sight of the plan and my Hope.

This detox is about more than juicing.  It’s about my journey back to the life that God created me for.

I have learned all too well that there are no guarantees and life is short.

So love yourself….whatever that means to you.  Respect yourself and Value yourself. 

Doing these thing will help you move forward and make healthy choices in life.

The craving for a Wendy’s burger is temporary.   A healthy life is permanent and the opportunities are endless.

I am so looking forward to the opportunities I haven’t even imagined…….

Here’s to the journey!
