Acknowledging WHY I eat

  • I’m bored.
  • I’m anxious.
  • I’m avoiding dealing with an issue.
  • I’m thirsty.
  • I’m used to eating at that time.
  • I’m addicted to sugar.
  • I’m afflicted to routines that don’t serve me.
  • I’m addicted to the act of chewing.

Notice how none of these things include being hungry?

I wish the fat would melt away and the pain would go away and the habits would correct themselves but I know better cuz I’m carrying the fat of it all. 🤦🏾‍♀️

Some things. They don’t require a professional to tell you or show you. Some things require you to be honest about how you’re showing up in the world, and to do a thing differently.

So this is my way of showing up honestly for myself.

  • To acknowledge when I am feeling these things rather than hungry.
  • To drink more water.
  • To deal with the tough stuff honestly.
  • To give myself a little more grace—but to not use grace as a license to slack off.

The end.
