I’ve fought with food for too long, letting it take the place of other meaningful activities in my life. And now, I find myself overstuffed with food, but otherwise empty. Time to put food in its rightful place and take away it’s power. Food is for providing fuel and nutrients. Food is not love or therapy or an excuse to not do other things.
This is the main goal I am focusing on now, and I’ve dropped nearly 25 pounds. I have about 25 more to go to reach the top of my “healthy” range, and about 40 more to go to get to where I want to be. Small goals: each day that I keep food in its place (by not over eating or undereating – by eating when hungry, making healthful choices, and stopping when satisfied) is a successful day.
