I think it's time to update and write regularly. I want to tell EVERYONE how incredible I am feeling. For 8 days now I haven't had any high fructose corn syrup, wheat, corn, sesame, peanut and basically anything that is processed. WOW! My head is clearing up, my energy level is strong and I am not in the bathroom 6-8 times a day. I haven't heard my kids yelling for me to get out of the bathroom. I haven't woken up with cramps and pain in my gut for days.
Yes, I have a tremendous amount of body fat and weight to lose; however, that is just the bonus to how I am feeling right now. Food has been killing me from the inside out. I've always known that this was an inside job - to finally get healthy from the inside first, but I didn't know that it was going to be like this.
It all happens in HIS time.
For a few months now I have been diving into the Word more and working with two leaders at my Church. And I know now in my heart that Jesus loves me no matter what. Head knowledge doesn't matter, it's what we know in our heart. How I "feel" doesn't matter, but the Truth is what matters.
People close to me are probably thinking, "well, Jen, it's only been 8 days". People that know me well know that I'm a great starter but I suck at finishing. What am I going to be doing in 18 days, 28 days, 108 days? I know in my flesh I cannot continue this another day. I do not have the strength in my own mind and body to do this, BUT GOD. In Christ I can do all things and in Christ I am more than a conqueror.
Day 8...wow day 8.
