Today being the first day of my new resolve to take control of my mental and physical health I feel it necessary to share what I've learned. First, being conscious of my eating habits and cravings is the worst. I wanted to get real with myself, but I have come to learn in past fourteen hours that reality bites! I really wanted some fried chicken tonight, but after questioning my desire to have it I came to the conclusion that I only wanted it because I knew it was an option. Reality #1: I got paid today and can afford to buy fast food. #2: When i didn't have any money all my taste buds were a lot less threatening to my weight loss goals. So what does this mean? It means that a lot of my poor eating habits depend solely on my ability to support them. Does that mean Id be thin if I were always broke? Not really. What it means is that my choices and eating habits are only made with a conscious mind and open wallet. Can this really be true? Do I make poor food choices simply because I can? Is there no subconscious evil that controls my mind? Oh my! I'm starting to believe that I am more responsible for all this that I originally thought.
