-Food is not your friend.

-Food is not a reward.

-Food is not an escape.

-Food is not a drug.

-Food is not a treat.

-Food does not comfort you.

-Food is not a celebration.

-Food is simply fuel for your body and nothing more.

The sooner you accept this, the better off you will be.

Sadly, I am still trying to convince myself to believe these statements.

I need to convince myself of several of those statements.

I don't have any tattoos but I may need to go all out and get a sleeve made out of this!

I hope I can truly internalize those words someday.

My thought to share this overcast morning in Ohio
FOOD=the most overused Comfort Measure
EXERCISE= the most under- utilized antideppresent.
Just something to ponder on.

This is such a great reminder. :)

I still struggle with remembering this, though. food is still way too important to me. One day at a time, that's all you can do.

Sure thing, I wrote it myself. It is something I repeat in my head trying to keep myself focused.

I understand, that is why I wrote it. I find myself being guilty of all the things I mentioned. After a 40 hour work week I feel like I owe it to myself to eat something to "reward" myself. I want pizza or junk food or the like. I am recovering alcoholic and addict, I am sober today. Food is the only thing I have left to abuse. The sleeve has definitely helped me in the sense that I cannot eat as much as I used to, but the mental obsession to eat is still there. Before sleeve surgery I estimate I was taking in roughly 8000 to 10000 calories a day. I typically take in about 3000 per day now at 18 months out, I realize that is too many calories and am trying to get it under control and starting to walk as a form of exercise.

      This video is an excerpt from the same, larger video. In this video, I pull out only the Food Addiction portion. Its such an important revelation for me and it may help someone else, thus I think it warrants its own video. 🙂

        Your progress with weight loss is awesome and so is your garden! I think you should've became a horticulturist. We've really gotten into gardening this year and it's darn good exercise. Keep up the good work and I'll keep watching. :D
