Food guilt

Wednesday, October 08, 2008

I have really got to get over my issue with food. I always feel so guilty whenever I’m eating. Mostly if it’s something “bad” but I still have guilt even it’s a healthier meal. EVERY SINGLE time I eat, I have guilt. That’s way way too much.

I know I’m an emotional eater. I know I don’t always make the best food choices. But I also know that I need to forgive myself for bad choices, and just make less of them.

I don’t know quite how to work on my guilt issue. I guess I’ve already made one step, since I’ve recognized it and realize it’s not healthy at all. I shouldn’t feel guilty for eating, but I should be able to say “I made a bad choice, so I will make a better choice for my next meal” and be done with it.

It’s just harder than that sometimes….

    I never think of food as good or bad, or even forbidden. If I want something like chocolate I have it, just a smaller amount then I would ordinarily have done a year ago. You have to eat, and need to try to over come feeling guilty when you do. It's hard to break habits, but you can do it. I like what Dolly Parton did years ago when she lost some weight, she ordered all the same food she always did, but only had a few bites of each then gave the rest to her crew. I am sure there are lots of tricks you can use to eleminate that guilt. Good luck you can do it.

    You probably are giving food way too much power. Food isn't good or bad, it's just food. Food can be such a nurturing concept, knowing that certain foods give the body exactly what it needs to be at it's best. it's all in how you look at it. Positive and healthy thoughts about food will keep you on course and reaching your goal. It's great to be constantly learning what the personal best foods for you are.
