Finally Changing my Relationship with Food

Tuesday, September 08, 2009

It's only taken 40 years, but I feel like I am finally changing my realtionship with food.

After several months of alternating being on and off my WW plan, I finally went back to what was successful from me a few years ago: the Core Plan, now known as Simply Filling. For those who are not familiar, its basically eating "clean", non-processed foods. I am eating AND enjoying vegetables, fruits and lean meats. I am trying new things and loving it. Trader Joe's has become my favorite store. Who knew foods like couscous, greek yogurt and hummus could be so yummy and satisfying?

I am feeling good, the numbers on the scale are slowly but surely getting lower and I no longer get light headed when sucking in my bloated tummy while walking :)

The best thing is that cravings have been significantly reduced and when I'm hungry, I actually think about what I am putting in my body and HOW it will affect my body. A bag of chips from the vending machine, only leads to another bag and swollen feet. A handful of almonds and some grapes leaves me satisfied for a few hours and there's no guilt trip.

It's cliche, but I am really understanding the phrase "you are what you eat". When I eat crap, I feel like crap. Do I avoid junk all together? Of course not, but the portion sizes have been significantly reduced while still satisfying my cravings.

    Congratulations, I am glad to hear that you and your body are coming to terms with food. People have been programed to fast, drive thru unhealty foods. Once you get your body use to the good foods you will not want the unhealthy foods. Junk food will never again taste as good as fresh fruits, veggies and healthy foods emoticon
