It's all about choices.

Just finished eating supper at my inlaws. I am not hungry but my mind keeps tempting me with "get a little more"! What is it that makes my mind tell me to eat when I am not hungry? I have been able to string together a few good days of eating right and I feel great! I just want to be able to continue. The choice is mine. I can choose to eat good or I can choose to eat what I call "sloppy eating". One day at a time I can make the right choices and hopefully have a few days, months, and even years of abstinence from compulsive eating.

Being from the south it is not surprising I think about food all the time. Food is a big part of EVERYTHING we do down here. But I can choose to be different today. I don't have to follow the great majority. This is my life and my body and I want to treat it with respect for a change. I am recognizing the mindless hand-to-mouth action that I participate in. I am trying to pay attention to what, how, and why I eat compulsively.

I am exercising more too and feeling great! I would have never believed that this couch potato would learn to love working out! But I do! And running?? Never in a million years would I have believed I would be a runner!

I have a long way to go but one day at a time I can get there. It's all about choices.

What good choices have you made regarding eating and/or exercise lately?
