"Breaking up is never easy, but like in real life relationships, its easier to break up when you have friends by your side supporting you. Ask yourself today, What is your relationship with food? Are you hiding a secret love affair? and are you ready for the break up?"
I am SOOOO thankful to be able to say my love affair ended in February. Food and I are now simply colleagues and "food" actually works to HELP me achieve my goal of freedom rather than tempting me into an unhealthy relationship that ultimately left me feeling empty anyways. Not to mention the "baggage" associated with yet another sinful interaction. Fast food and junk food no longer whisper into my ear and allure me to the drive thru @ nearly midnight. Route 44 Cherry Dr. Peppers no longer rock me to sleep and relieve the stress of my day (although Diet Coke's w/ Lime occassionally do now). Second and third plates are a faint memory, there is only one marked for me. :) Not to mention I'm noticing a little extra money in the bank from avoiding these temporary "fixes." It's actually kinda crazy because early into my journey I just couldn't comprehend this "needing to eat to lose" idea and in turn I was eating unhealthily LOW amounts of calories and I plateaued for 4-5 weeks losing only ~3lbs in that time frame. It was HORRIBLE. Now I actually smile about my mid day and mid afternoon snacks of fresh fruit or yogurt knowing that by eating this food it's going to keep my metabolism moving which will help me pull off pounds. I LOVE THE NEW RELATIONSHIP WE HAVE, one of building up and not tearing down.
Tell me a little bit about YOUR relationship with food? Is it a healthy one? A moderate one? Does food own the key to your heart? Should it?
