I was reading the disappearingwoman’s blog about temptations in life and how do you handle them.
In my mind food has always been the biggest temptation in my life. I try so hard to not make it a focus but I love eating.
The worst time for me is after work. It has been a long day and I feel the urge to eat the things right in front of me with no limits.
If it’s a bag of chips I definitely can’t eat just one or if its ice cream a little bowl will not be enough.
Practicing moderation presents a true problem for me. As a child I gorged on food all the time. I would eat until I got sick or the food was gone.
Instead of just eating I try to rationalize the need for food. It works most of the time but every once in a while I go crazy.
There was a time in my life I wanted to get away from the world. I had accepted I would always be obese and felt there was nothing I could ever do about it.
Every day I felt numb and needed an escape from my life. I began to feel more alone and wanted to become invisible.
One day I realized no matter how hard I tried to forget this was my life!
I needed to live it.
It may take me the rest of my life but I needed to face the problems and search out solutions.
Life was something I needed to conquer.
I got off the couch and started to exercise. Put myself into a gym workout and seriously overhauled my eating habits.
No matter how hard I tried I could not start over but I could take the initiative to change my life!
Temptations will always be around every corner!
With the proper perspective and a little will power I can work on my temptations for food.
I want to be healthy!
