Did you see that?

I have found that recognizing where my issues are can be just as important as the life style change itself. We all know that we want to make changes, that we should make changes yet as we begin to make them most of us don't stop and look for the how and the why we struggle. We know we are, but facing the truth is sometimes the hardest. "my husband insisted we go out to eat"... "my kids don't like those veggies" " I am doing everything right and its all wrong" " they bring too much junk food to work" … DID YOU SEE THAT? the words THEY, MY KIDS, MY HUSBAND. Those are words we use to fool ourselves, to pass the buck. Just because your kids don't like them doesn't mean you can't cook it for your self. Yes its one extra veggie, but you get so much more out of it. Not only do you get a healthier veggie or meal that you need, your kids see you eating healthier and it will impact them if not today later in their life when they face the same struggle. Just because your husband wants to eat out, doesn't mean you cant choose a lighter version of food. Go out to that steak house for dinner but ask to see the nutritional value of the food, if you have time do research on line. Choose a large side salad , eat it first and eat slowly then immediately put half your meal in a to go box .. bring your own dressing. There are so many options but you have to fist "SEE" where the real problem begins. So what if there is junk food at work. I have a huge bowl of mini chocolate bars that sit next to my desk.... I choose weather to have one or not... sometimes I do but I limit my self and I choose not to have them every day. We control what we choose to do. Accept that you are the one who is taking the wrong path and it will be so much easier to switch gears and follow the right one. DID YOU SEE THAT ? you just switched paths! :)
