Day 15

Weight: 202 lbs

Weight lost: -4

 

Down two more pounds since I’ve posted last. Jill (my wife) and I have been away on a prayer/planning retreat in the woods of Northwest Wisconsin. We ate simply there and took communion each night with whatever leftover bread we had from dinner and the bottle of merlot that Bill gave us last week. Splendid time.

So is it possible to lose weight without really trying? I’m trying to find out. I’m focusing sideways on the weight issue and instead am “eating” my fill of Jesus. My “Eucharist Diet” adventure is a six month experiment taking daily communion and tracking and posting the results in my personal life, relationships, health, and body fat percentage. So far, so good. I’m down four pounds in 2 weeks and in the process I’m feeling more alive in my relationship with God…

“God, I need you, and really only you and the things you provide me. Give me today my daily bread and that is enough… In Jesus.”
