Emotional eaters, rejoice! Help is on the way!

Any emotional eaters out there? Maybe you let food dictate your lifestyle? Maybe you can’t control your intake? Maybe you start off with honorable intentions but before you know it, you are in a downward spiral?

Do you drown your emotions in a plate of nachos, or a pint of Ben & Jerry’s? Do you eat out of boredom? Do you restrict certain foods, labeling them “bad”? Do you feel like you are chained to a negative mindset around food?

{{ BREAK FREE FROM THOSE SHACKLES! }}

Food is to NOURISH us. To fuel us. Food is meant to be ENJOYED >> not used as a punishment or a crutch to blanket your emotional state with.

I get it… I am an emotional eater to my CORE. As a Diabetic, that’s not ideal, to say the least.

But FINALLY… a program that will focus on the “why” not the how, and will also focus on IDENTIFYING the TRIGGERS that make it hard to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

It will help you SHIFT your MINDSET; no more EMOTIONAL eating, no more MINDLESS snacking, and no more PUNISHING yourself for eating food you LOVE.

You guys KNOW how big I am on MINDSET!

Instead of “diets” that focus on what you CAN’T eat, this simple and easy approach will have you focused on what you CAN eat so you feel full, satisfied, and in control, without ever counting calories or points or measuring food.

Thursday Thoughts – There is Always More to Learn

I applaud the people who study their craft. Who practice, relentlessly, to get better at it. The people who accept they may be GOOD at it but can always be BETTER. The people who LISTEN to valuable advice given to them, and step back, and can ACKNOWLEDGE when they need to do some work.

The people who are done growing, done learning… I can only shake my head. I can’t imagine being someone so arrogant that I couldn’t look beyond where I am to where I could go. I’m so grateful I’m not.
Stay open minded. Stay grounded. Stay hungry for learning. There is truly ALWAYS more to learn, always.

Truthbomb Tuesday – I can eat anything…

I realize that people who aren’t diabetic, or don’t have a loved one who is have a limited scope/understanding of the disease. This is encompassed when someone asks me “should you be eating that as a Diabetic”? In my opinion (as in, for me personally) the answer is yes…

Because much of my lifestyle is in line with being healthy, I don’t feel guilty when I splurge on a treat. Do I keep it reasonable? Of course. But I don’t outright deny myself anything. My personality type is, when I get a craving or a desire in my head, it builds and builds unless I satisfy it. I find outright denying myself to usually have disastrous results. So I indulge, sensibly.

I try to be patient with people who don’t understand “the Diabetes” but I also feel its kind of rude to ask point blank “should you be eating that”, the same way its rude to ask someone overweight if they should be eating that cookie. Should they be? Perhaps not… But like I said, I feel like because most of my choices are in line with a healthy lifestyle, I don’t feel that treat should be forbidden.

I don’t make it a daily habit, of course. NO ONE, Diabetic or not, needs to be overindulging in sweets every day. But for me, denying myself is not the answer, either.

Balance. Moderation. Sensibility. These are the answers for me 🙂
