Grace in Small (Eating) Things

We have been away for our weekend and had a really fab time (thank you Mum and Dad, I know the kids ran you ragged!).

On the way back from Bristol this morning I was reflecting on how much I have to be grateful for right now and more than anything my eating and problems around food are at the forefront of my mind.

So here are a few things that I am feeling extremely grateful for -

1. I have not eaten chocolate for over a week and not even missed it There have been no overwhelming cravings for it.
2. I have been away to a 4* hotel which had the most fab breakfasts and I did not gorge myself. I ate a filling and moderate breakfast each day. Today I did not even bother with the cooked. Never would I have thought that a free breakfast would be available and I would not take it up.
3. Both Sat and Sunday I have not had a snack. Normally I plan my meals and plan in fruit, yogurt of something healthy but the last two days I have not really thought about it - ohh to be serene and happy every day. I assume my tummy must be shrinking inside.
4. I can see I am losing weight and I feel good for it.
5. I needed some tea last night and where we were, there was just fast food places and a supermarket and I opted to go to the supermarket and get a salad rather than have chips - I just did not want them.

I know all these things to be miracles as I can not do them alone, especially when it is that time of the month. So thank you Lord for taking the time to be interested in my small problems.
