I just love food!
9th February 2017
We only go
around once. There's really no time to be afraid. So stop. Try something you've
never tried. Teach it. Do it. Risk it. -
an absolutely delicious lunch yesterday, I used a simply cook Vietnamese kit
and instead of pork, used chicken and it was tasty, add to it that I had my
bestie there to have a chat too and all in my world was good.
me think of the members who said, "I just love food" last week, I can
totally relate to that!It's an
interesting statement for sure, not on the surface, when you hear it, you just
think, yeah me too.I've come to realise
over the years though, it's not the food we concentrate on when eating that
causes the weight gains, I mean, if you loved food, you'd be paying attention
to it whilst you eat wouldn't you? You'd be giving it your complete, undivided
attention, sitting and savouring every last mouthful. Usually it's the food we rush, the food we
don't even notice we're eating that's causing our gains and that behaviour is
never done with love!If you're stuffing
your face in that way, there's usually an emotional reason for it, so start to
look at that, start to ask yourself "WHY?", why do you need to eat
that food, now, in this instant, why can it not go on your to eat list for
tomorrow or the next day and why does it have to be that specific food, what
are you getting from it?There's always
a pay off and trust me it's rarely just because it tastes nice.
all just big kids really, and our extra weight really isn't just a byproduct of loving food, yes it's normal to
love food, it's okay to be passionate about food, and it's normal to want to
taste new things and cook different recipes. But that doesn't make it a good
excuse for overeating, so next time you hear yourself say or think the words
"I just love food," you can be pretty certain that there is a
childlike part of yourself at work. This is perfectly normal by the way, nothing
to be embarrassed about or ashamed of. - we all have childlike parts of
ourselves. It's a childlike part because the child wants to keep tasting the
food despite the long-term effects. They can't understand what will happen if
they live on pizza alone or eat six chocolate bars a day. Therefore, it's the
parents' responsibility to put guidelines on what their children eat. In the
same way, we need to tell the childlike part of ourselves that just because we
love the taste of something doesn't mean we can eat so much of it or eat it
every single day. In other words - have
a word with yourself!
Start to put these limitations on yourself and you'll feel more in
charge, you will lose the weight, and you will actually come to love food even
more as you respect how special it really is.
I know it's difficult! I know, I know, I know, you don't have to tell me,
I also know a lot of our behaviours are down to habit, the more you manage to
behave in a different way, the easier it gets.I'm starting day 9 of no alcohol and other than having a giggle in my
meetings telling members it's not an easy task, it never even crossed my mind
when I got home last night, nor Tuesday, it's getting easier as the days go
on.Yes I love the taste of a glass of
wine, but I love the taste of a piece of steak, I don't feel the need to have
one of those every day!
I cleared out the mug cupboard by the way, going to chip away at the
de-cluttering and clearing up a bit at a time, 15 minutes here and there should
do it, the less stuff there is in your house, the easier it will be to keep
tidy - surely that's right - I do hope so anyway because I need 'easier' for a
lot of things.
The last couple of days have been hormonal hell, I think I've come out
the other side, I went to bed in a better mood anyway so let's hope so.
Here's to a good day, focusing on the healthy and happy, we've got this
