If you really want to lose weight and keep it off you need to stop asking other people what they eat and start asking yourself why you eat.
Are you using food as a diversion?
Are you trying to feel good while you eat or would you rather feel good after?
You tell yourself that you get pleasure from food although what you feel is not pleasure it’s relief. You feel relieved in the moment that you’re actually chewing, swallowing and tasting, and perhaps the few moments afterward that you still taste it on your tongue, maybe lick one last crumb off your lip.
You feel relieved because in that moment you divert your attention from the thought creeping into your head, you divert your attention from the discomfort you don’t want to feel because of the thought you don’t want to think.
How long does the ‘while’ last? 5 minutes? 30 minutes? 1 hour?
After lasts a lot longer.
And when you choose to feel good while you eat something that does not support your weight goals afterward you feel regret or self-loathing for having eaten it.
Throughout your lifetime how many hours, days and weeks have you had regrets about what you’ve eaten? Isn’t it time for you to treat yourself with the same compassion you’d offer a friend who kept making a mistake simply because she couldn’t see the answer?
