So this week I have really knuckled down with my diet and have cut out all chocolate and lollies, I feel so motivated to do this. I feel my time in America with my bro and his 10mth old son has really put my goals and why im doing this back into perspective. I have realised the only person who is holding me back is me and my choice to emotionally eat. I am so aware of what I do and why I do it and this helps me stay in control.
For example: Yesterday I was a little upset and I needed to go to the supermarket to buy some essentials while I was in there I decided to buy some chocolate because I 'wanted' it. However after I got home I realised I didn't actually want the chocolate because of the taste, I just wanted to eat it to make myself feel better - so the chocolate has not touched my lips, I have put it into the cupboard where it will stay until I want to eat it for taste not for emotional reasons.
Whenever I want something like chocolate or some food which isn't the healthiest I will ask myself two things:
Do I want it to taste the food or do I want to eat it because I'm feeling sad or emotional. If it's for taste then I will have some and I will be happy with just a little bit. If it's for emotional reasons then I will not have any as it doesn't matter how much I eat I will not feel any better for it.
I know for some people this is the kind of thinking they do subconsciously but for me I have never learnt this way of thinking so I'm trying to instil these thoughts to improve my relationship with food.
