Eat like a grownup!
Wednesday, June 24, 2009
I read an article last night that talks about eating like a grown up or letting the child inside me decide what I eat. That really struck a nerve and it is something that I really need to be aware of. Every time I have been on a "diet" the food that I "cheat" with are almost always "kid foods". Peanut butter sandwiches, ice cream sandwiches, cookies....the list goes on and on. So I need to put that little girl who decides what I eat in her place. No food is going to change my childhood-nothing I eat is going to make that little girl any happier. All it does is make this adult fatter and more unhappy. One of the items in the article said that if I don't let the child inside of me handle my emotions with food then I have to start handling my emotions like an adult. SCARY SCARY SCARY!!!! Am I a real grown up????!! i guess I better be-I have 2 toddlers that need a grown up for a mom-not a scared little girl who makes decisions a immaturely as they do.
