I justified all the reasons why I needed to swallow my favorite food.
Even promised myself that day would be the last.
You see, I used dates as a way to start over.
“I’ll be better on Monday”
“I’ll start again on the 1st of the Month,”
“Welp, I might as well keep going because I’ll be starting fresh tomorrow.”
My belly was stuffed and gassy.
My mind was stuffed with guilt.
Stress eating was my transformation killer;
My never-ending, emotional, roller-coaster wheel.
It was my unhealthy, emotional coping mechanism.
It left me feeling powerless.
Until I saw an ad for this journal.
Figured it won’t hurt to try.
Turned out that it actually helped!
I found what triggered my compulsive overeating in the first place.
I learned how to adjust using the “Temptation Plot” thingy in the journal.
Lost 9 pounds in the process using the “S.M.A.R.T. System” tool they had.
I created my own little imaginary award badge of control and confidence.
No one can see it but I wear it on my chest as soon as I think of food.
I said all this because I know you can conquer this too!
I wish I had someone telling me that they experienced the same thing.
Someone to give me something I could use.
Something that actually helps.
I’m being that someone for you.
Giving you that something.
