Eating with a purpose not for a solution.

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

I will be honest I have been struggling lately with eating healthy. I have been trying to get back on track for the last three weeks and have been struggling worse than I have ever before. I start off with the best intentions and by the end of the day I have given up on gone to comfort foods.

In the last month there has been some really sad times. I have been using food for a solution to these problems.

There is purpose to eating. It is not for emotional support. It is to fuel your body, give you energy keep you healthy. I need to go back to when I ate for a purpose. I was vegetarian for years. I felt so good and I believed in my reasons. I let that slide. I choose foods for the health benefits not for comfort or even a calorie number.

Back to eating the way my body feels at its best. Starting off vegetarian again TODAY! It works for me. I am stopping counting calories. It makes me focus on the numbers and I never truly feed myself for hunger and learn when my body has had enough. I am still keeping track of food. Still planning ahead. Using portion control and looking p calories with need foods. But I am not being a slave to it.

Today is a new day to start fresh.

  I could have written your post. I too have given into emotional eating and using sugar and other junk foods to satisfy me and they don't satisfy at all. I recommit every day and fall off the wagon every day. I keep hoping that today is the day to stay true to my goals. We'll see.
