My Dear "X"

Get your cupcakes, muffins, ice cream, candy corn, peanuts!!!! No...I am not chanting as if to sell these food items like a vendor at a Dallas Cowboys game, I am naming these food offenders as the culprit. They have have apparently caused an extreme reaction to the most heinous crimes of all crimes of all mankind, the lack of self control when it comes to maintaining weight. Yes, guilty as charged.

Now that I have said it loud (and I am not proud about it), perhaps this will hold me more accountable and help me to stay on track. I am not saying that these are bad foods, and eaten in moderation they aren't, but for me I have to say good-bye to them. I have eaten way too many of each and all of them. They are my "X" factor in not staying on focused on a healthy eating plan for me.

So here is my letter of good-bye. My dear cupcakes, muffins, ice cream, candy corn and peanuts....my....how I like the way you taste. It is pleasing to my taste buds. I have heard you call my name. I have romanced you to the point of seeking you again and again. But for now, for this season in my food life, I must say good-bye. Again I have to say no, because my love of your delights are causing me to have some weight maintenance issues. I am such fool and you will not have my heart any more. To you I will not be faithful. See ya, it was not nice knowing you. You have left me injured and heartbroken. So good-bye.

What is your Dear "X"? The House FM is playing a song right now from Disciple, Dear X. You can see a video about the song here. No matter if it is food, or the Internet, or whatever....what is your "X" that gets into your heart, your taste buds, your mind, that is hindering you?

Tell me... you'll feel better.....I know I do.

Lyrics of "Dear 'X' (You Don't Own Me)
Dear pain, oh, it's been a long time
Remember when you were holding me tied
I would stay awake with you all night
Dear shame, I was safe in your arms
You were there when it all fell apart
I would get so lost in your beautiful eyes

But I let you go
But you're still chasing

Go ahead, you're never gonna take me
You can bend, but you’re never gonna break me
I was yours; I'm not yours anymore
Oh, you don't own me

Dear hate, I know you're not far
You would wait at the door of my heart
I was amazed at the passion in your cries
Dear anger, you made me so high
You were faithful to show up on time
Such a flame that was burning in your eyes

I let you go
But you're still chasing

Go ahead, you're never gonna take me
You can bend, but you're never gonna break me
I was yours; I'm not yours anymore
Oh, you don't own me
Go ahead, put a target on my forehead
You can fire, but you got no bullets
I was yours; I'm not yours anymore
Oh, you don't own me

You're tempting me to look back
But everything that we had together was a lie

Go ahead, you're never gonna take me
You can bend, but you're never gonna break me
I was yours; I'm not yours anymore
Oh, you don't own me
Go ahead, put a target on my forehead
You can fire, but you got no bullets
I was yours; I'm not yours anymore
Oh, you don’t own me

Nope not any more!!!
