It'll Put Hair on Your Chest

Monday, June 08, 2015

Thank you to PRNCSCUP1-2FULL for her blog on this subject.

I hadn't remembered until now about that phrase "it'll put hair in your chest" if you eat/finish that food. And it was my mother who said it to me. Could eating food equal power in my mind?

I know I've always gained a sense of accomplishment from finishing something.

So, eating food and finishing it - will it really get me power and a sense of accomplishment?

As for the power issue - I think I'll need to examine this - is the food in my hand for power - aka fuel - or filler? Using food as filler is powerful also in a way - to push down feelings. What kind of power do I want to use food for?

One way to harness my drive to accomplish is to reduce what how much food is on my plate. For instance, I bought some tortellini with the intent to savor it - it just occurred to me to that I can cook only one serving!

    It must have been a mom thing back then...I remember those same words. Now I use those words when I think about Spark. If it worked to gain weight and poor health, surely it will work in reverse. emoticon

    I agree. It is always important to stop and think about why your eating something expecially if you know its something you really shouldn't have right now.
