Why do we do that?

Monday, April 05, 2010

Isn't it something, to still eat that last one, when you really don't want to, your full, your satisfied...I do the same thing, and I am sure many of our Spark friends have "been there, done that" I wish they would figure out scientifically why we Humans do this, because it would be a great help to NOT eat that last one, and make yourself miserable. I got home from my friends, with a piece of cake, already having a small amount at Easter dinner. I had to eat it. I felt so bad all evening, I decided then and there, SUGAR has got to go, I mean leave, GET OUT.

    That's why I can't buy cakes and cookie stuff at the store. If it's in the house, I'll end up eating it. I have such a weekness for it! My mom gave me a little home made loaf of banana bread last night. Thanks Heaven it was tiny ~ It's history! I 'thought' about saving some for morning...but NOOOOOOOO! *sigh*
    In other words, I haven't developed a good personal answer, I wish you luck finding yours! emoticon The only thing I can do is shove it off to my kids and boyfriend, and sometimes the garbage can. Perfectly fine food...in moderation ~ going into the garbage can! Get it Out of my house!

    Scientifically you cannot measure the human mind, the fear, the pain, the guilt, the etc.,etc.,etc., that seems to force us to go against our best interests.

    I know you are unaware of any triggers for this binge, but think back and see if you can find it. And, yes, it was a binge.

    We always put a bandaid on our actions such as this by saying in the future I am going to do differently. Think back how many times you've said that same thing.

    Don't go into guilt and stay in remorse. Find out the trigger and realize that was actuallly what you ate the cake over. To distract you from your feelings.

    Gee whiz, you are human. You need to be flexible and forgiving with yourself. Today is a new day to start anew!
