let's call a spade a spade
"When something eats us, we overeat. 
Gluttony is self-medication for unhappy emotions."
So tweaked Rick Warren recently.
That's right.  R.W., the famous pastor of Saddleback Church.
His parishioners have successfully lost tons and tons of pounds.
I'm going to be researching The Daniel Plan 
which they followed.
Until then, I am seriously paying attention to my food intake
(and emotions)!

*Gluttony.  What an ugly word.
But let's call a spade a spade
in the sense of speaking honestly and directly about a topic.


  1. Hard hitting truth! Emotional over-eating is something I am very familiar with. The Daniel Plan is totally new to me. Keep us posted.
    New Year's Blessings to you and yours~

  2. I hear ya. I have fallen since vacation and I can't get up...

  3. Anxious to hear more about the Daniel Plan!

  4. I hope you share some thoughts and hints about the Daniel fast if you do it. My daughter asked if we could try it. I started reading about it and was overwhelmed quickly.
