I’ve been listening to some speakers lately and two have really impacted me. The first one talked about how and why we sabotage ourselves as we try to improve our lives. There was a lot of information to digest and I could definitely see myself in what she said.
In fact, just recently I did something that I know I shouldn’t do but I was sure this time would be different. I bought a bag of Hershey Kisses and told myself that I would just eat one serving and the bag would last at least for a week. Of course that did not happen and I ended up eating the entire bag in three days. I know I do not have much(if any) willpower and I should not even bring that kind of stuff home.
The second speaker spoke about diets and how they often fail. Part of the problem is they ask you to give up favorite foods and that is hard to do over the long term. She also discussed how we have lost the ability to recognize our hunger and our fullness. We eat too often and too much food. Lots of stuff for me to think about and put into action.
This may be the next step to take in my health journey – something around my food choices. Have to think about it a bit.
