Jot down a quick prayer on a sticky note sized piece of paper and tape it close to the fridge handle, pantry shelf or a cupboard door (especially if that cupboard contains the snacks!)
Prayer can be written something like:
"Dear Lord, please help me tell the difference between hungry or bored. Thanks!"
"Lord, help me shut my mouth and move my legs today!"
"Thank you God for this body - let's take care of it together."
"Too many tasty treats taint this temple!"
These simple prayers stick the heart when you know that you are eating out of boredom, or having a munch mania lunch-a-thon. Ask God for the extra power you need to say no to the ho-ho, and say yes to the best of this life!
