Is the Grass Always Greener?

Thursday, January 17, 2013

It may not be true for everyone, but it's true for most people I know, and it's certainly true for me: the other guy has it better, easier, luckier, and so on. This one is losing faster, that one never has cravings, the other one actually enjoys working out. Why is it so hard for ME??? Just me!

Yes, I know it's not true. But I feel like that sometimes, when I feel like the "diet" isn't going well, when I feel out of control, or unsuccessful.

I know many people dealing with food issues, or other addictions, or serious health issues. And let me tell you: I am so lucky.

I have a decent job, a safe place to live, enough money to put food on the table, a few really good friends, and of course lots of wonderful inspiration on-line here.

Sometimes I just need to remind myself. Y'know?
