Smile Silly but it works!

Hi there, I don't usually post but thought this might be the time to share. My father had a heart attack a year ago, my brother has terminal bone cancer, my 18 year old daughter had a baby and now lives with me and of course then there are the daily stresses we all have to tough out. So, I know where you are and understand your pain/stress level. What I find works for me is just saying "This is sooo unfair and I don't want to worry about my food!!" Of course this is yelled at the top of my lungs in my car! It may sound silly but it does work, at least for that moment. Doing this takes away some of the POWER food has over me and then the stress of not eating the "wrong" thing is taken away. Next thing ya know I'm making better food choices with out thinking to much about it all. I've realized that I was putting so much pressure on myself to make the right choices that I just couldn't trust myself to make the right choices. I hope that makes sense and that it helps you.

God Bless and be strong

Nana
