A YoYo problem needs solving
Thursday, June 14, 2012
Dear Spark Friends
I would like to start wishing everyone a great weekend coming up and to let all my friends know that you're always in my thoughts and my heart even-though my time is so limited on Spark People.
This post is more of a journal for myself this morning. Every year, I do so well on our winter holiday, 6 months of healthy eating, exercising and feeling great about myself. Then I come home in the spring and every year I treat my body with disrespect by over feeding it with junk, sugar, fat and all the food that I know will add up 8 lbs or more of fat and jeopardize my health. I work at loosing it during the summer (if I can) only to put it back on in the fall before leaving for our winter holiday again. The reason for this is I have no self control on my eating habits during all my visits to family & friends. I overeat as if I will never see food again, I load up on deserts, chocolates..any food containing sugar (which of course I know that it's an addiction) So bottom line is that, I'm a YoYo which I've been all my life...but WHY? I hate myself for doing this to my body. WHY do I loose all self control when I know that I'm such a determined, intelligent, well informed person health-wise.
My numbers from my physical was excellent, the Dr was very happy with my health and said that I only have 2% chance of ever developing heart disease. But what he doesn't know is that I'm a YoYo which is very bad for my health.
Through a great friend on Spark People, I'm hoping to tackle this issue and understand the problem behind it. If anyone else has any good books or website links, please feel free to send it to me.
On the good side of my well being spiritually, I finished my book "A New Earth" by Eckhart Tolle and it was fantastic. I'm starting a new one called "The Dark Side of the Light Chasers" by Debbie Ford and I'm very excited about learning from this one. I truly believe that books do call me at the proper time when I need to learn for my journey on this earth.
I still love doing my meditation in the morning, my prayers, my grounding and then a little bit of reading and journaling in my book gives me a great sense of peace to start my day.
Ok...this has been long enough, I feel great having journaled on this and posting it to all my friends who never gives up on me. I do feel guilty for not being there for all of you though.
I love you all
