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.

    That's a great way to think about it - the food is just an object that only has power over you when you allow it. You get to use the food for the health benefits and good nutrition and everything else can sit there forever if you choose. Keep reminding yourself that you're a very powerful and strong person who has control over what you eat and what you don't.
