I had an interesting conversation with my DH last night. I was concerned about my own ability to take weight off and turn myself into the strong and lean person that I've been striving for as long as I can remember. This is because I felt like I completely de-railed myself yesterday as I had a bit of a binge moment. I would have eaten anything and everything but for no reason at all -- I just wasn't satisfied. I wasn't hungry either.
Well, I of course look at this as destructive behaviour verging on a mental/emotional eating disorder. Will this always be an obstacle that I will never get over? Do I need help? And I asked myself the big question WHY and couldn't come up with an answer.
But my wonderful hubby had the answer. With complete conviction he said simply that... I was craving chocolate. I mentioned wanting it the night before, and didn't have any in the house. And you know what? I think he's right.
His logic: He craves pizza. He eats pizza. Craving goes away. vs. I crave chocolate. I don't eat chocolate. Craving doesn't go away.
So there you have it. I don't think I'm the only female out there that over-analyzes things and jumps to worst case scenario. Sometimes the most simple answer isn't obvious. Thank goodness for simple minds. (no offense to my hubby.
Any pieces of gold from the significant people in your life that have put things in perspective and helped you in your journey?
(btw, I'm good now. I logged what I did, had a good workout, and feel much better after last night's talk
