Your probably asking what is it that I am tired of well I will tell you FOOD! I am tired of it encompassing my life. I am tired of having to worry about everything I eat. I am tired of not being able to live freely to be able to eat a hamburger when I want it or a piece of candy. I am tired of having to exercise like a mad woman to just maintain my weight. I am tired of logging my food to try to lose my 10 pounds I have gained. I am tired of every day thinking “I am fat” or “my arms are getting flabbier”.
If you are reading this you probably have a love/hate relationship with food like I do. I imagine you also are tired of thinking about it.
So my question to you is what can we do to stop thinking about food all the time? I am a compulsive eater, I could eat any time of the day or night and not be satisfied with what I eat and just want more.
I will never be you and you will never be me. I try to read a lot of other people’s blogs to be inspired and it does inspire me, but lately its making me feel bad like I am not working hard enough and this frustrates me. I KNOW how hard I work every day I know I look good, I know I would have killed to be where I am at now 3 years ago, but what will it take to make me stop obsessing over it?
I spoke again to my husband just the other night about this and once again he said what I already know “be thankful for where you are today!” He also said “Even if you weighed 150 pounds you wouldn’t be happy, if you ran a Marathon that wouldn’t make you happy…just learn to be happy where you are.”
He is so right and I know this, so how do I live it??
Some of you have been successful losers for a long time do you go through this inner turmoil? If so, how have you dealt with it?
