Over and Over and Over

I have an issue with food. I’m not going to write about it in great detail at the moment, but suffice to say that I gain a lot of weight most years and lose that same amount on those same years. My problem is that I’m not vain, but then I do worry about my health.  Oh, and I love food. It doesn’t help that I married a food lover too.

I’ve worked it out. In the past 8 years I’ve lost and gained and lost the weight of 2 people. Yes. 2 people. Fortunately I’ve always lost it but I know this isn’t healthy.

I ate some homemade Sticky Toffee Pudding before writing this.

Disgusting

Downtrodden

Disappointed

Degrading

All or nothing

 

Eating well

Exercise

Enlightenment

Energy

Try to quell

 

Out with friends

Oily treats

Overeats

Over days

Weighing ends

 

Blinkers on

Baking

Barbeques

Bloating

Big

Blinkers on

Self-loathing

Self-conscious

Set apart

Stupid clothes

Sad

Degraded

Downtrodden

Disappointed

Disgusted

No more fails

 

Eating well

Exercise

Enlightenment

Energy

Try to quell

Over and over and over and over and over and over and over …

      • What I find helps me when I want to indulge on food is take breaks in between eating. Put out a decent portion on your plate and then sit for five minutes. If you’re not hungry after those five minutes, you weren’t as hungry as you thought. You just really enjoyed the dish. Also, I love to binge eat chocolate whenever possible but how I stop myself before it gets too out of hand is to slow down. I don’t just blast through the chocolate bars like I want to. And I force myself to think “Do I really need to taste this again and again?” I’m not sure if any of that will help you but that’s how I manage cravings.

      • I agree with your methods. The best thing I’ve done is to walk every day and eat 2 large meals a day with no snacking. Once I start nibbling that’s me. I’m an expert at losing weight though. I just need to continue with what works. A lot of it is emotional eating. It used to be emotional drinking too but fortunately I don’t drink as often anymore.

      • You know I used to be a bit of an emotional eater too but I taught myself to stop associating food with happiness. Happiness is something that has to come from within and you’re ALWAYS capable of producing happiness. No matter what. Don’t let anyone or anything have the keys to your happiness. Because once that person or thing goes away, you’re hosed. Happiness starts with me. That’s my mentality.

  1. And, if all else fails, don’t beat yourself up too much over a few lapses here and there. You’re worthy of forgiveness, nobody’s perfect. Just try to keep things in perspective 🙂
