We deceive ourselves that what we are eating is really healthy. Hey, that fig cookie does have fruit in it; doesn’t that danish have apple in the middle?
We can talk ourselves into believing anything we want, but what we want isn’t necessarily good for us. We need to take the reins and turn our habits around and go back to the basics of healthy eating.
So much controls our binging: worry, stress, boredom, etc, etc, etc. Sometimes our problems are beyond our control, so we must work on what is within our control.
‘Self Talk’ is a good way to strive to take control of our lives. It helped me a long time ago when I thought I had to worry about every situation in order for it to turn out right. How stupid was that? But, that was my theory and it seemed to work, but boy what stress. (Of course, things would have probably worked out okay even if I didn’t worry, but try to tell me that back then. ’My days of stupid.’)
Whatever we tell ourselves is what our brain believes is true.
A quote by Ken Gaub:
‘We form good or bad thoughts in our minds because of many things; our past experiences, our knowledge of God’s Word, how we feel abut ourselves, our general physical and emotional health and even our dreams and goals all effect our thinking.’
Or take what Dale Carnegie said in ‘How to Stop Worrying and Start Living’
“Our life is what our thoughts make it.”
