Day 6

Sunday, November 21, 2010

Still going strong! My eating today was very good (no overeating and I drank my water).

Food is fuel...When I was younger, I was so worried about what other people thought of me, that I could never be myself. So I turned to food. Food never judged me. Food never talked about me behind my back. Food would never stop being my friend. Food was always there for me when I needed it (and didn't need it!). I turned to food for comfort. It's a habit I have had for many years (ever since middle school). But now, I'm discover that food is what I use to keep my body going, like gas for a car. When fueling my car, I would never use gas that would harm it; I use gas that is good for it and helps it run better. The same concept should apply to my body: I need to treat my body to good food so that it stays energized and continues to work the way it was made to, maximum capacity. I know that if I fill up the gas tank in my car, as soon as I start to run out, I can refuel my car, so I never overfill it; that does more harm than good. Same concept applies to my body. There's no need to stuff myself in one sitting. I can eat in moderate amounts, then "refuel" the next time I get hungry. Instead of looking at food as a companion, I now see it as fuel.
