I have an unhealthy relationship with food. I realized the other day that its not just about changing what I eat, limiting junk and adding more veggies, etc. My biggest hurdle is that I don't eat for hunger, and a lot of the time I don't even eat for pleasure.

I was thinking about this as I drove home yesterday with a small bag of cookies that a coworker had made. I had just eaten, but I wanted those cookies anyway. But instead of mindlessly eating them, I asked myself "why?" first.

And the answer popped into my head: "Because I don't want to share them." Well that's just not a god reason to eat cookies, now is it? So I thought some more about my underlying reasons, and saved the cookies for later (and shared them with my husband).

My early resolution is to ask myself "why?" before everything I eat.
