Self-Control

"And the fruits of the spirit are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control..."

I am lacking in the last one. I need accountability, I've been working on this for a while and it has been going alright, but lately I haven't been doing so good. Soccer started this week, and I had to get a physical today for it. Let's just say... I need to increase the self-control. Soon. My weight has gone up a lot over the past few weeks which isn't terrible since I am still well under being overweight, but I am not comfortable knowing how much more I weigh now.

So I'm asking for prayer I guess. Pray that I can use more self-control. I saw on Kim's blog a while ago that not having self-control is a sin since it is in the Bible that you are supposed to have it. Ouch. I have been praying about it, and like I said it was going ok, but now I'm slipping again.

I don't really know what else to say, but thanks :]

I'll pray for you. I agree that you don't have to worry about being overweight now,but you are smart to think about self controlnow, before it becomes a problem!

You know that I'm here for you all the time and will do whatever I can to help you. Start with your journal next week and we'll see if that helps with it. I think once you get in a better habit with eating it'll be much easier for you to keep it up. Of course, I'll also be praying for you as I always do! :) Love you sweetie!
