eat to live or live to eat?

Everyone reaches a point in their life when they are feeling down, depressed or lost…and sometimes during those times…we live to eat.  As an emotional eater myself i did just that. Food makes me happy. I never lets me down. It’s always there for me when need it.  I always viewed eating as an event. I love to order in. i love restaurant foods. i love going out to eat…i think you get it! I LOVE FOOD!

Needless to say, i was 110% living to eat, and while my BFF food was there with me to make me smile…my weight kept going higher and higher with in the end didn’t make me happy at all. It’s a vicious cycle.

Finally, it clicked in my head that i can’t do this anymore. i’m unhappy and as food was comforting me and i was gaining weight i couldn’t have felt more alone. Going out with my friends i was always overlooked by the guys because i’m the “short fat girl.” Going shopping in stores all of the cute clothes were for the thin girls and while everyone would leave the store with bags of outfits…if i actually bought anything it was shoes, jewelry, or purses because obviously those are one size fits all.

I made up my mind that i’m going to change my whole outlook and approach on food. i’m going to EAT TO LIVE! and to live a healthy lifestyle i need to change mine.  While food may still be an event because i love it so much, i’m more cautious on making the right choices of what to put in my mouth.  As I’ve lost weight and i’m feeling better about myself. I’m able to buy all of the cute clothes and i am building up my confidence and that delicious food and the 1000s of calories that come with it aren’t worth it to me anymore. I work out at the gym way to hard and long for it all to go to waste in only a few bites.

so i’m over living to eat! i’m eating to LIVE… my new life
