Guilt by Association...

Thursday, June 06, 2013

At this week's weight watchers meeting a recurring theme to be transpiring....GUILT. I feel GUILTY when I have this or that...when I go over my points...when I use my weeklies....

I sat there feeling like an alien. I have NEVER felt guilty. I never have. I have always figured that was what weeklies were for....that was my choice...my decision.....my consequences if there need be.

I have thought a lot about guilt since our meeting. I have come to the conclusion that it is a word choice. I have always been one for EXACT words...they have certain meanings and they are to be used for certain contexts.

GUILT....could it be ....that people feel BAD on their decision or REGRET?

Are they afraid of that scale? It would betray their choices?


hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm


It has been noted that we make approximately 200 decisions per day in regards to food . We are bombarded with food ads on tv and the food industry knows where their profits lay and tempt us constantly with SUPER SIZE......VALUE MEALS....MORE IS BETTER! Food is always present whether it is subconscious or not.

SO..............we as members want to lose weight....eat healthy.......and somehow we LOVE to PUNISH ourselves IF and WHEN we partake in an option that may not be the wisest.

We need to define what the BALANCE is for OURSELVES. We need inner peace....acceptance...and forgiveness. Life is going to go on and we can look back...Analyze ...regroup....replan.....and focus.

Not every decision is a wrong one. Some granted...could have been better....but ....take a moment...or two.....pause....think.....is this what I want? Can I make this work? .....and go on.

Life is a balance act......and so is food........

Guilty as charged?

Perhaps not....

Compromises in action.....

perhaps yes.......

This is not a race where one has to HURRY to get to the finish line.......

choices...decisions will always be in place no matter where you happen to be on the course of life.

Balance...inner peace....will lead you there in a more STABLE forgiving way.
