Just Say No

9:07 PM

I had a really good weekend diet-wise.  Well, maybe semi-good is a better way to put it.  Or maybe "aiight" is the best way to say it.  I did aiight.    I haven't been as focused as I need to be, and part of that is due to my very unhealthy, very bad, not good relationship with food.  Some people have a shoe addiction, I have a food addiction.

Sad? Let's eat

Happy?  Let's eat

Headache? Let's eat

Feeling fine?  Let's eat

I comfort eat for sure!   In fact, when I think I'm going to have a bad day, I like to "pre-medicate"with something fatty and delicious (Whoppers for breakfast anyone?) so that I'm equipped to handle things.  If I truly think about it, it is not much different than any other drug of choice.

Problem is, you can't totally break up with food.  I could break up with fast food, but that doesn't really address the issue.  I could break up with fried food, but again, that doesn't get to the root of the problem.  I've got to come up with better coping mechanisms, I have to establish a routine for those moments when I am super stressed.   Food isn't going to make a project I'm working on less boring, or make the reasons for my stress disappear.  That good feeling I get, that "high" is temporary.  And when it is over, things are the way they were and I'm more broke and bloated.

I did not go to BWWs today for lunch.  I ate my Lean Cuisine and kept it moving.  Self control is important, and every day I'm getting stronger and making better decisions.  I've got a long way to go, but baby steps are steps in the right direction nonetheless.
