Reality bites!

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

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.

    I think questioning unhealthy cravings and habits is a huge battle! It made me think about how hard it is sometimes to pinpoint the circumstances and emotions that lead to unhealthy choices. Thinking about it beforehand and taking responsibility is the first step to breaking those habits!

    I was reading your blog and I just wanted to say that I love your writing and that it is an inspiration. Thanks for sharing!
