Moment of Weakness

Well, after my last post about how the Daniel Fast wasn't all that bad, I almost threw in the towel yesterday!  It was just a moment of weakness really.  Hubby and I had a date planned, and I was really bummed about not being able to go out to eat...because honestly I could not think of one restaurant that would serve Daniel-approved food.  So I started sulking and feeling sorry for myself.  And prepared myself for a boring date. I told hubby that I was thinking about giving in.  He told me I to just keep going.  I even went into my bedroom and asked God if it would be ok to eat normal for just this one meal with my husband.  One word instantly came to my mind:  COMPROMISE.  I knew that if I compromised my fast just this once that it would be even harder to keep going.  And I would probably compromise again...and again and eventually throw in the towel for good.  So I stood strong.  We dropped the kids off and did some shopping and came home.  I was actually craving those darn sweet potatoes, so that is what I had for dinner.  Hubby actually had one of my veggies burgers and said they weren't bad!  I ate sweet potatoes and was totally content.  I only have 3 more days, and yes, I'm ready for it to be over because it is getting harder.  (I mean, how many veggie burgers and stir fry can one eat before getting bored with it?)  But I'm glad I didn't cave last night!  And so far I've lost 3.2 lbs and I am loving the way my clothes feel!  And I can tell my tummy is shrinking...both on the outside and inside!  I don't eat nearly as much as I used to!  And so, I keep plodding on to Day 10...

Good job! You can do it! Those sweet potato fries are delicious, aren't they? You know, I was getting sick of the same foods too. But 2 days after my fast was over something funny happened...I was craving veggie chili and stir fry! LOL

Yes, I LOVE those sweet potato fries! I actually had them for lunch yesterday AND today...and have a pile more to use up over the next couple of days. I'm wondering if I will start to crave fruits and veggies after Wednesday! I bet I will! Which is always a good thing!!
