You are definitely an inspiration Carrol I will never eat another Cookie, well maybe never. We are all supposed to be living temples. What sort of temple do you desire to be. I think I would like to become a tall slim glowing temple of health. Watch out world here I come. Smile. Have a wonderful day I am trying harder every day to think about the fuel I am putting into my body. Greener is better they say. So I am trying to put a few more vegies in my diet you know pasta sauce tastes better with beans than pasta healthier as well think of all the foods you have with pasta and try and put them on a selections of vegetables instead you will feel much healthier. bye for now.

That was an awesome stimulating video..it made me think for sure.

I remembered something while watching this. When i was losing weight in a consistent pattern a year ago, I really had my mind programmed that food was nothing more than fuel for my body. I mentally gave up the thought of food being about taste, comfort, etc. The refridgerator and cupboards were nothing more than the fuel pump which holds the fuel so I lost a desire to go to them. When I needed as scheduled my fuel, I then went to the fuel pump. Corny soudning I am sure, but I lost a need for cravings. Silly I am sure. I hope I can get my head there again though. = )

hhmmm That long winded bit of sharing seems to be a procrastination from doing my recorded affirmations. ROFFLMAO

Sorry for the book but I sure hope it helps somebody.

Associating the sound of a dentist's drill to an item is one sure fire way to give a negative value to any said item.

But ya know..its a revelation for me that you say that in that way, "our bodies should be more worthy than a cookie."

I for one have to pay very close attention to how I think, assign value to things, and the words I use when talking to myself.
NOW, I dont value a cookie much at all and completely concur with the wording of your statement.
*(The cookie is made from bleached overly processed white flour, overly processed sugar, fatty butter and or fatty milk....processed milk chocolate chips with even more added sugar...plus gobs of other fake unhealthy junk that ultimately slow me down longterm and lower my stamina and vitality. Eating one mini disc sized cookie is about 220 calories if not more, depending on the cookie. Its bad for my heart, my blood pressure, my arteries, my insulin production, my thyroid, my triglycerides...and makes me hungry faster for more JUNK. I could eat much more of tasty wiser food choices, feeling satified and nurished for a greater leangth of time for that same 220 squandered calories wasted on something that makes me CRASH.)*

But back when I was so terribly over-eating, that statement would'nt mean much to me or make it through my critical thinking barrier...it would get rejected as an untruth or just fall on def ears like everything else my mother told me. lol
My body value compared to cookie value...I hated my self image, hated being/looking/feeling FAT.
Meanwhile...I loved the taste of the cookie, the pleasure it gave me, the escape from being/feeling/or caring about being Fat. (addicted to sugar high) I was always given the cookie as an expression of love, as a reward of good dead, as in commemerative feast celebrating the wholeness of the family unit.
To deny eating it would define my sense of self as being unworthy of the cookie, me as unworthy of celebrating, unworthy of love, and alone...while eating it meant to be good to self.

Any attempt to DIET with this old value system, relationship with food, or method of thinking was fighting my own insticts and completely counterproductive. So in the same way as the sound of the dentist's drill...I brainwashed my mind with self talk to diminish the value of said cookie while promoting and elevating the value of wiser choice foods for myself, body, mind, spirit, my health, my stamina and vitality.

I have learned why and how my mind works and by purposely CHOOSING the value I invest in things, choosing where and on what my sights focus, by firmly setting my own beliefs I can MORE EASILY MODIFY MY BEHAVIORS to be inline with those truths......then I can use my own human nature to work Towards acheiving my goals rather than against me.

Its up to ME what I tell myself, what values I choose to believe, and finally what I prove to be true by my actions and behaviors. With each success I spiral upward with improved self esteem. Because I believe I have grown and am a better person, I automatically behave more as I think one such person is supossed to be.

Oh yes this is great I will use this thanks for sending. I can see a lot of food sounding like dentist drills. Smile. I guess that video is also telling us that our body should be more worthy than a cookie.

Identifying your goals, reciting them out in the most clear and specific way you can, and then to visualize them....and then identify the triggers that you see as obsticles to those goals.
The script to that video is very open and forthcomming, not hiding how it works on the subconscious at all.

Watch that Video again, and in the place of the cookie, insert in your minds eye any of your other food triggers, or you could even go so far as to create your own photo to look at while listening to the script.

I watched this video. A couple days later I was at the grocery store, I'm PMSy and wanting chocolate. I'm on my way to get some yogurt, as a habit (I tend to do once a month)I see the cookie dough packages and think of picking up a tube but the minute I saw the chocolate chip cookie on the front of the package I got an uncomfortable feeling... almost a repulsion, and thought NO THANK YOU! Then remembered the video.

I'd love to see more videos like that for all my trigger foods!
