The one thing in my life that has the quickest effect on my diet is dating.
Whether its a positive or negative experience I still manage to translate it into 1000 calories
If its a good experience involving a lot of positive energy and compliments... i tend to celebrate with carbs and sweets.
If its a negative experience that leaves me with doubt or feeling like maybe my ex is the best I will ever do... I just throw on a pizza band aid to sooth the hurt.
Why is it that my emotions are tied directly to the fridge????
I remember when we were kids... very chubby kids mind you. My mother would
reward us with food. Obviously this is not a good idea. I love my mom, but part of me (the chubby part) sort of resents her for this.
To this day whenever I experience any strong emotions of success or failure my first thought is food.
I have developed a lot of coping mechanism to help me stop myself and analyze what I am doing and also help me identify what triggers me, but sometimes I just dont catch it in time.
Its like I see a cookie after a rough day and I black out
Only to awaken with shame and icing on my breath.
One day I would love if I celebrate or sooth with a run.
Or by buying myself a cute new outfit like I used to.
I love this quote... I always feel like it was wrote for me....
"Do not reward yourself with food...you are not a dog."
Anyway, just my thought for the day.
