Will Power vs. Curly Fries
I walked into Curves this week and was greeted by a huge poster emblazoned with the words, Will Power vs. Curly Fries. I had to laugh out loud, as I felt that the designer of that poster must be secretly watching me and recording my most private thoughts.
I struggle with food every single day.
Every year, I make a resolution to lose weight. Every year, I lose weight. Every year, I gain it all back and then some. This year I am not going to resolve to lose weight. Instead, I resolve to get to whatever emotional issue it is that drives me to eat..... and eat ...... and eat. If I can determine WHY I eat the way that I do then I can get to root cause of this awful roller coaster ride I've been on for about six years now.
In the meantime, I have a sticky note on my dashboard that says Will Power vs. Curly Fries. I'm hoping it will trigger my senses the next time I want to go through the Arby's drive thru.
May your will power win this week!
