-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.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
