Yesterday, I went to church, had a cross of ashes placed upon my forehead and confessed my sins before God. I swore off sugar, oil, and salt for the 40 days of Lent. I actually want to swear off of it longer than that, like forever! I don’t like anything having control over me. I questioned whether it did, but being 150 lbs overweight points in that direction, and today proved it beyond a shadow of doubt. I just finished eating two helpings of spaghetti with mushrooms, onions and green peppers cooked in olive oil and spaghetti sauce along with four slices of toast with garlic butter on it. I ate veggies cooked in oil for lunch too. It was just a little bit I told myself. Now I see where a little bit leads to.
