Relationship with Food (subtitle: I didn't want the ice cream!)
Friday, July 17, 2015
I think my relationship with food is changing. I find myself making food choices based more on what would be good for my body at that moment rather than what would taste good at that moment. Of course, I still factor in taste to an extent when I make a "good" food choice for my body, but I no longer seem to pine for the "bad" foods that previously I would have preferred to eat.
And last night, my husband wanted me to pick him up a pineapple sundae from Sonic after I finished playing tennis. And I DIDN'T WANT ANYTHING FOR MYSELF! I got to Sonic, got his sundae and went home. I was still somewhat full from dinner and I didn't really feel like ice cream. In the past, neither of these things would have prevented me from getting a milkshake or maybe fries or something. In the past, if my husband was getting a treat, I was getting one, too! And this wasn't even a calculated thing - I didn't mentally calculate the number of calories I ate or burned and determined that I couldn't "afford" a treat. I just didn't want anything.
I have been listening to a hypnosis app on losing weight almost every night. But honestly, I listen to that app as I seem to fall asleep faster to that than when I listen to the hypnosis sleep app. So maybe that has wormed it's way into my subconscious.
Either way, food is no longer my master!
