Well folks I am almost done with month 1 of this 7 experiment and to be honest it went by pretty fast. There is something I thought I would never say after day three of eating only 7 foods. I can't believe how much has happened in just one month. To start with, as time went on I stopped caring about the food. I just ate it. Also, my pants are falling off! I have lost 10 pounds this month, not from starving myself but from simply eating only when I am hungry, the way God created us to.
 One thing that my small group teacher at my church said one Sunday morning was that if your relationship with God isn't improving day by day, it is going downward; there is no such thing as a spiritual plateau. She said this several months ago and I remembered it because it made complete sense. I can definitely say that this whole month, my friendship with God has only been improving. This ride has only brought me closer to God.
This month definitely hasn't been boring. There have been a lot of things that have gone on, some good, some not so good. I had the pleasure of working in VBS (Vacation Bible School) at my church with all the kids. I loved teaching them about the Lord I have come to know and love more over this past month. However, that same week my great grandfather passed away. I am so blessed to have such close relationships with everyone on both sides of my family and I was so blessed to have a great grandfather who was so devoted to his wife and everything he did. He sure set the bar high for my future husband and I am motivated by him to live life to the fullest like he did. Not to mention he raised my awesome granddad who I love also. As sad as this event was this month, I now have a huge piece of him that God has blessed me with. When I drive in his car I will always think of him.
This month has not been easy by any means but I feel so entirely blessed because so many have it far worse than me. It is crazy how after utilizing fewer foods I realized how much food I really have. I have gotten some strange looks and people have called me crazy for doing this but I am so glad I did it. 7 foods is more than enough for me.
Thank you God for all you have blessed me with.
