Life is full of rules. Written and unwritten ones. Society is based on rules. we, in the end, conform to the rules, without even realising it. How many places in your life do people tell you what to think? Advertising, TV, media, social networks, there is just a few of many many levels of rules we operate under.
Think for a second about ‘diets’ like the Paleo diet. Supposedly we are returning to natural foods from the earth’ if we follow a diet like that. But who said that you had to purchase all the processed foods that are put before you on the supermarket shelves these days? Who said that you HAD to eat that chocolate bar with your coffee every morning? Who said that you HAD to have that meal out or that take away every weekend? That ‘one more’ drink, that ‘one more’ cake… getting the drift?
We all say that we are too busy, too this too that, we make excuses all the time.
TAKE CHARGE!! IT IS YOU THAT IS IN CHARGE!
Then, once we have accepted the ‘rules’ then we accept this new state as the new NORM. its ok, I have always been a little bigger. Its ok, I am cuddly. Its ok, I am big boned. Is it REALLY ok?
Only YOU are in control of what goes in your mouth. No one else.
Step one of your journey complete. Well done!
