It Didn't Take Much Enticement

My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not. Proverbs 1:10

All I can say is that it didn't take much enticement to get my eating spiraling in a counterproductive direction. I went to lunch with my husband to a deli salad bar, one of my favorites. I piled my salad sky-high with all the yummy healthy toppings that I love. I felt sluggish after eating this healthy salad. Had I overdone it?

I would have told you no, because I've eaten this healthy salad lots of times in the past. To top that off, we were meeting family for dinner to celebrate a birthday. At first, I figured that I wouldn't order anything, because I was still full from lunch. Did I stick to that plan? No. I decided I would order a dinner and just eat half of it. I did, but my plan didn't work out the way I thought. I was nauseous all that evening and most of the next day.

Sometimes I'm a Straddling Christian in much the same way. I come up with schemes of how I can do things for God, but do my own thing, as well. It's like I want to to make God and the very worldly side of myself happy at the same time, when I know better. Fortunately for me, Christ shows me what I'm doing and forgives me when I ask Him to. I am very blessed! My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not. Proverbs 1:10

Since this is an example of the positive influence God has made on my overeating, this may not reflect the whole meaning of the Bible verse.

I have decided to include Weight Loss Tip Videos instead of the Healthy Tips I have been doing prior to this to provide a wide variety of tips for weight loss. See Disclaimer. I, personally, lost the weight through prayer and good nutrition, and do not promote any weight loss gimmicks. Debbie
