Falling in the hole

May 3, 2012 in Uncategorized


I heard this on the radio today

And immediately I thought


That is it

It really describes what it’s been like for me most of my life

In regards to food and weight loss

So I thought I would share it with you!

The DJ said “Share it with whoever you want”

So I am!

This is for anyone who has suffered from an addiction, or bad choices in their life;

1. I walk down the street, There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I am lost…I am helpless. It isn’t my fault. I fall in. It takes forever to find a way out.


2. I walk down the street, There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I pretend I don’t see it. I fall in again. I can’t believe I am in the same place. But, it isn’t my fault. It still takes a long time to get out.


3. I walk down the street, There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I see it there. I still fall in…it’s a habit. My eyes are open. I know where I am. It is my fault. I get out immediately.


4. I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I walk around it.


5. I walk down another street.

That reminds me of what I saw on a church sign board last night:
If you’re tired of “all else” failing, quit doing all else. :)
Great advice!

I’ve heard this before and it is great.

Certainly hits home for me, that’s for sure.
