MY EPIPHANY ABOUT FOOD & FEELINGS!

I realize that i eat/ate so much because i really enjoy the taste of food and i get a lot of food because i don't want that taste to cease but the reality of it is that, IT WILL CEASE.

there will come a moment that i am no longer eating that dish. so the question becomes, "not if the moment will cease but, when will the moment cease?" and more so, after that moment has ceased, "how do i feel? and what are the lasting results of my decision?"

for example, "I can eat one cookie or the entire bag BUT at some point i will no longer be eating the cookie and how will i feel about myself and how will my body be impacted after i make the decision?"

if i eat one cookie, i would have enjoyed the taste of the cookie, i will feel good about myself and i would not have gained weight/unhealthy side effects OR i can eat the whole bag, enjoy the taste, feel extremely guilty and down about myself and my body would have been negatively impacted....make sense?

i know my thought process on food is extensive but it is what it takes to help me make good decisions

6 WEEK CHALLENGE = -30 POUNDS. BEGINS 7/5/11







I am excited. nervous, fearful. but determined. Life has had its share of beating up on me and I have given in, without a fight, way too many times. Obesity cannot win in my life and I need the mental focus and discipline to do what I need to do these next few weeks. Thirty pounds in six weeks is a very lofty goal but NEVERTHELESS it is my goal and I am GONG FOR IT. I am calling the next six weeks of my life "OPERATION BEAST MODE".... I know that I have to be extremely focused and dedicated for this to happen. Plus I really want to be out of the category of "overweight" by the end of this year....BELOW ARE MY ENTRY PICTURES...
