Fit, Fabulous 40's Friday!

What's Eating You?

We all know that to lose weight we need to eat better and exercise, 
but I think a few things need to happen.

1. You must BELIEVE it is possible!

2.You must have your "WHY", your reason for doing it.
But, bottom line, you have GOT to do it for YOU!

3. You must think about the underlying issues, "what's eating you",
that has you turning to food
to either numb the issue
or comfort you regarding this issue(s).

You might even want to journal about the above....

I think what was "eating me" was fear.
My entire life has been spent fear-full.
I still have it,
but as my faith in God has grown, I have become more
I can trust HIM
and not have to turn to food in excess or candy
for the comfort I have needed.

We ALL have to eat.
The tough thing is that you can't "Quit" eating, 
but you CAN
feeding into your emotions,
 eating unhealthy and begin giving your body healthy food,
foods that will energize,
your body!

There is a difference between feeding your body
feeding your emotions!

Fit Tip of the Day; 
Write down everything you eat today and the rest of the week.
Write down what you eat and at what time.

AWARENESS if the first key to improvement!

can do it!!!!

Just keep going!

Do you think journaling could help?


  1. I love that - "Just keep going"! This is so true with other areas of life too, I think, at least for me, anyway.:) I have never been consistent with this kind of journaling, but perhaps it is time to rethink it. Thanks for the encouragement today. I needed it!

  2. Karen,I agree with you in regards to having patience in other areas of my life, too! I think journaling what you eat makes a huge difference and journaling in general is healthy. Your visits make me smile!


Thank you for sharing your thoughts! I LOVE happy, healthy, sparkly comments!
