I really had to think about this long and hard. At first, I thought I don't give food power, do I? It took a while to realize that I stress eat at meetings. I get rid of my anxiety by eating the snacks in front of me to make me feel strong enough to deal with the issues that were being put on the table. To comfort my boredom, to fill that insecurity.
Spangle suggest to think about ways to feel powerful, strong and empowered without the aid of food.
Here are things that I came up with that will help me have more power over my food-
- I feel strong when I take care of myself by working out.
- I feel more confident and powerful because I am making positive changes in my life.
- I feel more empowered by taking action on things that I can control and not worrying about things that I can't control.
- I have a sense of accomplishment when I reasonably plan my day and carry out my plan.
How will you feel powerful and strong with no food involved?
YOU CAN DO IT!
JUST ONE MORE DAY!
NEVER EVER GIVE UP!
