The Struggle

I struggle with food. 

I know what I am supposed to eat.  I know what I shouldn’t eat. 

I don’t eat what I should eat and I eat too much of what I shouldn’t eat.

I think daily about the bad foods I shouldn’t eat and that I shouldn’t eat them and that I am not going to eat them today.  Sometimes I am successful at not eating those foods.  Most of the time I buy and eat them anyway as though I don’t even remember thinking earlier that day that I shouldn’t eat those foods.  I don’t know how to fix this problem.  Is is a sugar addiction?  Is it lack of will power?  Is it some deep seeded psychological reason?  I don’t know.  I just know I have a HELL of a time with food.   

I am going to try the following:  every time I am about to put something in my mouth or buy something to eat, I am going to stop and ask myself if I really want it.  I am going to ask myself if I will regret eating this thing.  If I forget and remember halfway through, I will stop and ask.

    I wish you the best of luck with that. I can kind of relate. I have the same problems with cigarettes (i’m not currently smoking). I know I shouldn’t have them. They smell bad and they’re REALLY expensive, but I would smoke if someone would just give me a cigarette. :/

    I so understand your struggle here. I am in the exact same boat. I share your pain.

    Sometimes I tell myself that I am going to eat the treat, but I am going to wait five minutes before I eat it. Sometimes the craving goes away, sometimes I forget about it and sometimes I still eat it anyway in five minutes. 🙂
