I'm feeling a bit cranky tonight, trying not to binge so please don't judge me for this mini-rant.
I am so tired of looking everywhere (t.v., magazines, websites, etc.) and I see one image of a skinny woman or discussions of how to drop weight and the very next image is one of some tempting desert or meal or something that sets of a message to my brain that says: consume me, you can't live without me! You need this now!
I know it all comes down to money. Sex sells, image sells and people also are tempted by the images of food since that is what the primitive, impulsive part of our brain seeks out.
I'm just really tired of it. I want to do this. I've reached goal and have gained some recently, so I"m struggling and so far not getting too far off track, but it's with my claws out and gritted teeth. It's not easy. I'm not saying it would be easy without all these conflicting messages. I just want to vent. I'm bloated, tired and just wish it were a bit easier sometimes.
Thanks so much for listening.
I really love this group.
