Beck Trek - Chapter 8 - Day 23 - Counter the Unfairness Syndrome
Saturday, September 19, 2015
How many of you live with a significant other who can eat whatever the h they want and not gain a freakin' pound?
Or, they decide to "take off a few" and it appears to happen overnight...whist you struggle to see a half a pound drop in a whole week?
Me! Me! Me!
While I know I have so much for which to be thankful, "It's not fair that I can't eat and not gain weight" is a frequent sabotaging thought of mine.
Beck points out that LIFE ISN'T FAIR.
It isn't fair that I have to get my butt up and go to work every day...but, oh well...I do it.
It isn't fair that my job is stressful...but, oh well...I do it.
It isn't fair that my skin is saggy and my face is wrinkled...but, oh well...I'm happy to be alive and healthy.
It isn't fair that I can't eat all the food I want and stay thin. OH WELL! There are still lot's of foods that I CAN eat and that I enjoy eating. These foods nourish my body, taste fabulous, and help keep me thin and active.
Staying thin and active is my best defense against illness as I age. And staying healthy means a long and happy life!
Wow - this is so me. I am just started to see little changes also in how I look behind just weight.
I look at commercials & say OH COME ON when I see people in the restaurants happily eating away - with all that Fast Food in front of them. I always have guilt. It not fair. So I just dont eat out hardly ever - unless on vacation
I do live with a hubby who eats almost anything he wants BUT he has had heart attack, quadruple bypass, later stents, colon cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and other illnesses related to his eating and sedentary habits. He says life isn't work living without junk food. I disagree.
I suspect my hubby used to be like yours. For years he seemed to eat almost anything and not gain. But for the last decade, starting in his 60's, no more.
