I am NOT a mindless eating machine.

Today I read and article that really challenged me. To read the article, click here. I'm not really sure how exactly to put into words what I'm thinking but I don't want to be a mindless eating machine, just filling my life with food and eating. 10% more joy as the Cadbury packet says - what a lie! I don't want to find my life's joy in food, something that is here now and digested and gone within hours. 

I want to find joy in living. In my family. My faith. Through living well and BIG and fun. I don't want to be a slave to this. As someone who has been overweight or obese for most of my adult life, for me it all comes back to food. Instead of feeling like I'm missing out, I'm now simply focused on feeding myself nutritious food that sustains me to live the life that I've been called to. That's what this is about. Yes, it's ok to enjoy food. But to mindlessly shove it in, without a thought, living in constant guilt from the last binge? No thanks.

Now repeat after me: "I am NOT a mindless eating machine! I am a person of worth!" 

And the beautiful thing is, it's a new day tomorrow. And every day.
