Have you ever been tied down and force-fed cookies, crackers, brownies, or cakes? Nah, me either.
The only time I was ever forced to eat anything was when I was a kid, and it was my mother making me eat something healthy. And even then, I often found a way to sneak it under the table and feed it to the dog.
I suppose school-yard bullies might make you eat dirt or something awful. If that happened to you, I’m sure it was a horrible experience, but probably wasn’t likely to make you gain weight.
My point is that nobody is forcing us to eat anything.
Even when it feels like that cookie is moving towards your mouth against your will, it is still you doing it to you. Even if those bullies stressed you out and you are comforting yourself with food, it is still you putting the food in your mouth.
When you can take full responsibility for the foods you eat, the exercise you do, and the thoughts you think, you truly being creating the life you want.
You have more power to create the life of your dreams than you can possibly imagine. Truly.
Together we can do it!
