When it comes to diets I have tried them all. I had a subconscious programmed image of what I should look like and was willing to do insane things to achieve that ideal. My first memory of going through this insanity was in high school.
I remember rationing out a single roll of Life Savers to last me all day. The roll had several colors so I would sort them into how many classes I had that day and place them in a row at the top of my desk, eating a specific color for each class—yellow for math, green for science, red for history, and so on. The red ones were my favorite—yummm! I can still taste their tart sweetness.
Of course, I wouldn’t have eaten any breakfast in the morning, although I was careful to create the illusion that I had so my parents wouldn’t catch on. I would pour a bit of milk in the bottom of a bowl to make it appear as if I had eaten some cereal. And so began the diet frenzy.
Read Mark 4:22 “ For whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought into the open”
Have you ever hidden a food addiction or bad habit?
