Putting on weight can be really stressful. How stressful? Everytime I look at my meal bowl with something good in it, I’ll be on a major guilt trip.
‘Will I gain more weight if I eat this?’
‘But I gotta eat to survive!’
‘Well, I can eat healthy salads too…’
‘Fine. Let’s eat a little this once and diet from tomorrow.’
A sample of the battle raging in my head when the meal bowl is in my hands. Who in the world wouldn’t love chicken, cakes and basically everything that’s not so good for the body? Driven by guilt, we check our weight and determine to jog on the treadmill everyday and diet.
Complete cut down on sugar and rice. Run and walk and jog like crazy. Watch motivational videos, eat carrots and cucumber and scream ‘Raw is Good and Good is Raw!’
Did I just dream about eating chicken? Why do I feel down? People usually say coffee with milk brightens up everything. Should we try? One cup doesn’t hurt! No harm in skipping one day of jogging. I imagine all this but I end up just imagining them. God is so cruel! Why does he have to make people hungry?!
I actually do what I had imagined during stage 2. But be cool anyway because I’m so sure that it is just for a day.
I thought it’s been just a day since I skipped dieting and jogging, but it has actually been a week! Did I get into a coma and lose track of time?!
I exercise extreme caution to not look at my treadmill. Why? Because I will end up feeling guilty. Did I just hear it laughing at me? Oh, like I care! I’m not fat. I’m just a wee bit difficult to kidnap.
Stage 1 all over again!
Conclusion? We have got dreams to accomplish. Family to take care of. Nothing is possible without health. So let’s just set a priority for our health and work on it. Hopefully.😊
