Get over it.

Is this you?


I want to be thin.

Well, what I really want is to eat crap all day but not get fat……. or unhealthy or sick.

Why?

Everyone else eats crap. – Who? – everyone……….. everyone around me is always eating cakes and chips and chocolate etc.

And they look good – right? Have the body you want?

Well……no – not really, well I guess not at all.

So, those people that do have the bodies and health that you admire, like your friends here in blogland for example, do they eat crap all the time?

Hmmm – no

Do they mostly eat healthy, nutritious meals?

Err – yes

So - to get the body you want,

You need to stop whining about the high calorie, high sugar and high fat, additive laden foods that the marketing companies brain wash you into believing are yummy and that you can’t live a day without them?

You need to take responsibility for your own health?

You need to stop feeling like you are the only person in the world that can’t eat chocolate whenever they feel like it and not get fat?

Yes.

LOL Claire....who's been getting up YOUR nose?

I used to be one of those people. Thank God my mental deficiency miraculously cleared up.

That whole everyone's eating crap, why can't I? thing is like kids asking their parents for something outrageous and using the argument "But everyone ELSE has one/does it!"

My mother always answered "If everyone else jumped off a cliff, would you?"

I think you have been inside my head. It is the conversation I have with myself on a regular basis. Mostly the sensible me wins but not always.
