Moving Right Along
Tuesday, July 10, 2012
Today was great. The soft-serve ice cream screamed at my "you know you want me" and I stuck my little nose in the air and kept on walking. Was happy to get all my walking and my water aerobics today. It was a fun day.
I am using a new strategy, a strategy of separating myself from food emotionally. I keep reminding myself that the food, whatever it is, has no power over me. It is an inanimate object. Is is not "calling to me" as I so often think it is. It can't. It's just an object. It is just food. It can't get into my mouth without my permission.
I no longer give food power over me. I no longer give myself permission to eat anything without pausing, considering, determining why I want to eat it and if I need it. It has worked great today, hope it will continue to work.
