    Your Internet sure does sound frustrating, but better than nothing, right? Two weeks in a row, I've been gone to church at night. We had Missions Conference and then ladies meetings both at church and my husbands bible college. It was sure worth going, but I'm exhausted. Really cut into my reading time! I haven't started in my journal yet. I've still been thinking of boundaries. I'm going to do calories, and I haven't decided exactly how many calories. The Lord sure did show me however what not to eat. 2 times i got sick eating carbs. I get so dizzy and nauseous. My head just swims. I've been a type 2 diabetic for 12 years, but this is new. I'm wondering if I've suddenly developed insulin resistance in the brain? Read that with newly found type 3 diabetes, which is insulin resistance in the brain. Perhaps not, but nonetheless this is just more serious that I need to reverse my diabetes sooner. I have my boundaries on the foods, and praying for calorie ranges. I've read a lot about fasting, esp Alternate Day Fasting and type 2 diabetes in peer reviewed journals, and its really beneficial for bringing down markers for heart disease, blood sugar levels, and Insulin Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1) for certain cancers. Plus other things, but I'm mainly focusing on these 3. Even with fasting though, you still eat everyday. So, that's where I'm at.

    We will be like 2 peas in a pod! LOL. The app is called, I Deserve A Donut. It has all the emotional and boundary type questions to ask yourself and then gives scripture to renew the mind. The app is going to be pivotal for me along with the studies.

    While I mentioned a type of diet I was going to follow, I'm really gong to pray for wisdom and direction for my boundaries. I am constantly getting myself in trouble by not seeking the Lord first. And with preparing to go into full time ministry, I need to learn this now.

    I'm going to restart the Freedom from Emoting Eating book. I'm going to keep rereading these books, as I'm the type that thrives on repetition.

    God's Word is going to reverse my diabetes!!

    Her book Freedom From Emotional Eating is REALLY hitting home with me. All of them are just excellent, but I decided to start with Freedom From Emotional Eating First. I had a hard time deciding, but this one REALLY grabbed me. I'm just glad that I have all of them on my Kindle so I am able to read them often and over and over, which I will be doing. Makes it easy to read it on my phone with me bible. I'm hoping to blog some about them. If you ever want to talk/discuss anything, PLEASE don't hesitate!! I am so thrilled that you are reading them too!!! Makes it even better!! I have the app on my phone as well which will REALLY help! I am so tired of not getting anywhere for the past 4 years. I have been losing and gaining the same 10-15 lbs. I almost feel like what's the point of trying since I won't get anywhere anyway! But because of these books and the app, I feel as if I can eventually do it. These are by far the best books I've come across that I believe with renewing the mind the Key to it all!
