Food For Thought-daily meditations 05-23
Our mental attitude has much to do with our physical reality. "As a man thinketh in his heart, so he is." If we think in terms of being thin, it is easier to adjust our appetite to the smaller amount of food which we require. In the past, we may have been eating enough for two people. Large numbers of us in OA have lost the equivalent weight of at least one whole person.
by using our imagination to picture ourselves as thin, active, and healthy, we help our bodies adjust to the new image. Our old, fat self may want more to et, but the thin person we are becoming does not need more. the fat self may grumble at leaving a comfortable chair to go out for a walk or at climbing a flight of stairs instead of taking the elevator. A sharp mental image of a new, thin self helps provide the necessary motivation to get up and go.
God does not intend us to be distorted and encumbered with excess weight. He will help us see the person we are meant to be.
May I become the peson You intend.
"Failure is an EVENT, it is not a person – yesterday really did end
night, and today is your brand new day..."
The sun always rises, and a new day begins.
