hippo

Monday, December 10, 2007

so i have found a new way to motivate myself. last night i thought mark called me a hippopotamus, and i got really upset and cried myself to sleep. it was a misunderstanding, but this morning i found myself saying no to grazing and eating chocolate because that's what hippos do and i am not a hippo. I am not a hippo! so i will not eat or act like one! this is my new emotional eating weapon. whenever i feel like grabbing something bad (or even something healthy when i'm not hungry) i just have to tell myself i am not a hippo and it makes me stop, think, and walk away. this event which torn down my self esteem for a little while built me back up and inspired me to go further.

    I guess if it works then go for it but I would hope that you start to feel more positive about yourself and decide to this because "you" want to be healthy more than anything else! Whenever I feel like grabbing something and I'm not sure if it is hunger or not - I first drink a large glass of water. If that doesn't do it I grab either some walnuts, brazil nuts or almonds (for crunch) and some raisins (for sweet cravings) and then I'm usually ok. Good luck on your journey to a healthier you!
