I have been overweight for a loooong time. I don't really remember ever being physically fit, but I do know that the last time I looked remotely slender was in high school. I have a long standing love/hate relationship with food. I love it while I eat it and then hate that I ate it when I am done. Two nights ago I was laying in bed thinking about how the next day was a fresh day and that I wanted to start eating better...like I think pretty much every night. Then I realized something, food and food craving don't control me. I control them. I don't have to eat every time my body says I am hungry (because most of the time I am not, I am just bored.) And if I truly am hungry at a snacky time of day, well, I control what I eat. So it may seem like something really simple, but it was a big revalation to me. I know what to eat and how much to eat, but only I have the conrol to make it happen. That is a lot of power and it is very inspiring to me. So yesterday and today were both great days and I controlled the situation. I will become a more heathy person, for myself and for my family.
