My biggest weapon against emotional eating
Friday, March 08, 2013
Yes, tracking my food intake.
When my head is so full of if's and but's and, as a quote I recently read, my greatest judge is living right inside me, the best weapon is to track.
Tracking makes eating objective rather than subjective. It takes food away from the emotional monster and turns it into a simple game of numbers.
The monsters says 'you're too fat', but the numbers show me I've eating within my range.
The monsters say, 'go on, have another piece of cake, you'll feel better', but the numbers show that I've eaten all I need to eat today and it's time to stop.
The monsters say, 'you have no control', the numbers show me that I do.
Then, the monsters try their most powerful attack 'tracking is way too difficult. Don't bother with it today'.......
When I hear that in my head, then I know I'm winning the battle. So, I sit down and I track my food. And, when I do that, those monsters start to lose their power, and I become just a little bit stronger than I was before.
