"Divorce the story of your limitations and marry the truth of your unlimited capacity!" "Make a schedule and stick to it!"

I am preaching (screaming) to the choir right now, and I "borrowed" this from a motivational video I watched.


I recently joined OA and I have been learning a lot and I have a new found motivation to do this thing once and for all. I've been attempting to turn this addiction over to my HP, who I call God. I'm reading "Made to Crave" by Lysa Terkeurst and "Journey to Change" by NewSpring Church.

I have a ton of support, not only from SP, but from my therapist, sponsor, recovery community, husband, friends, and family, and most importantly I know that when I ask that God will help me - but I have to ask. I have been trying to drive and am getting nowhere but going in circles. I'm exhausted – God, I need you to take over!

    Stephanie, thank you so much for your sweet response to my purple shoe blog. I appreciate your kind words about my writing. I have always admired your writing, too? I remember when a couple of years ago I found your treasure trove of blogs (you were posting lots of nature photos back then, too) and read a whole bunch in one day, some from years earler. That's one reason why your present-day happiness just blows me away--because I know how much pain and heartache you've been through. You have worked so hard and been so blessed to get to where you are now. Talk about miracles! Your beautiful self, your loving husband, and your adorable stepson--the most wonderful miracle!

    Hope you're enjoying your new life!

    Hi! In answer to your question about the grouping function - if you look at the nutrition tracker and see there's "Search", "Recent", "Favourites", "Groupings" and "Recipes". If you click on Groupings you can create your own grouping of different food items - this can be actual foods or ingredients - whatever you do to make your meal. So I have a breakfast one where I have just 1 boiled egg, 1 toast, 1 pat of butter, 1 cup of tea with 1 sugar and a serving of turkey deli slices. This is a routine breakfast I have - so instead of tracking each individual item into the tracker, I just click on grouping and select what I've already entered into there - Named it "Egg and Deli Breakfast" You can name yours whatever you want. It just makes it quicker than having to enter everything manually.

    Stephanie, I love, love, love your wedding photos!! I will remember those for a long, long time, as they are incredibly striking and full of the beauty and joy of the day. Congratulations on having found such a wonderful man, and congratulations to him, too, on having you in his life forever after!

    Stephanie!! Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment on my Learning to Cope blog. I am very touched that you took the time to compile those quotes and to share your thoughts about addiction. I want to go back and reread everything more carefully and get back in touch with you, but please know how much I appreciated that.

    You are married!! Congratulations! I am over-the-moon happy for you, knowing a lot of what you went through before finding happiness. May this be the beginning of the best rest-of-your-life you could ever imagine!
