I had an AH-HA moment with a peanut butter cup

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

It seems so simple, so basic - you are responsible for you. But to really understand what that means, it took me FOREVER.

However, I am happy to say - I get it.

I understand that yes, I can have those miniature peanut butter cups! But if I chose to have them, I can't blame my weight on outside influences. Nobody forced me to eat them. It is my responsibility what I put into my body. However I absolutely love them - straight from the freezer. So I choose to eat one or two occasionally.

And that's ok.

It's ok because I know that one or two won't make or break my diet. That the majority of my choices are healthy food that gives me energy. I know that my body is getting stronger so I can jog, or bike, or dance.

I know that, today I might have a miniature peanut butter cup and thoroughly enjoy it. And then I won't have another for several days or several weeks.

I am not a slave to my food - I can enjoy it, I can treat myself and I am responsible for my strength and good health. I know that the majority of times for a snack I reach for an apple, or yogurt, or nuts.

So, it has taken me a long time to get to this point - where I really understand that my weight is nobodys fault but my own. And while I'm working on getting my body where I want it to be - there's still space in my life for a frozen miniature peanut butter cup.
