My First Day of Success in the Battle of Gluttony

Hello! Today is the first day in a week or so that i have managed to not overeat. I started my morning with coffee.. i was hungry so i took advantage of this and put sweet cocoa in my coffee.. two cups of coffee.. 3 cups.. wait so my next habit to kick will be caffeine oh boy lol. Then eventaully I ate.. which wasnt until dinner after I got to work because I wasnt really hungry until then. Then i had some chips and chocalte that they have at work.. i didnt bypass full however I could’ve stopped sooner I realize now with the chips… and thats it.. that is my food diary for the last 24 hours almost. I am not even hungry. Now one thing I’ll admit was that I did suffer a little earlier.. because of the thought of the loss of food. However, the spirit inside me chimed up and spoke words of comfort.. he’s reassured me that this will be a peaceful thing unlike overcoming cigarettes.. he showed me I’m going to be so blessed on the inside about how easy this will be.. so I felt some gladness. Also, when it came to emptyness and I felt some grief I realized that there will he suffering as my friend recently pointed out to me that when we serve Christ we suffer.. there should be some amount of suffering because the flesh in its nature resists the spirit.. the “bigger” man on the imside. The flesh has temper tantrums.. so this kind of suffering “for doing what is right ” is to be expected and is good. This is where we get strength from the word of God because when we suffer we know that we are sharing in his suffering and we are doing something right, we are on the correct path! And this is conformation and is reason to rejoice because our reward.. is life 😀
