"Sorry honey but you abused that privilege"
Strong words spoken to a child, but that's how I was talked to as a kid, when given a little I...
Over did it!
I wasn't the kids you had to prod to get going, I was the kids running past the boundaries, over doing it, abusing privilege.
I read so many streams of social media. I follow celebrities and scientists, fat people and skinny people, serious people and funny people. I people watch!
As a "people-watcher I often watch how the thin and active handle themselves.
A common theme:
"Ooops! I over did it! Heading to the gym to work it off!"
"Over ate at that function, taking a run!"
"Big lunch today, just going to have a salad tonight"
Oh....how I wish I was like the skinny...They seem to have it all. The freedom to eat whatever and the willpower to exercise themselves back.
I'm NOT like the skinny, I have some addictive behaviors! I say it pretty casually I know, but the TRUTH is, I think I'm finally coming to acceptance of that. It's really helped me release foods I can't control instead of thinking, "this time I'll get em back and control them!"
Science says that ONE of the real problems is the ADDICTIVE IMPACT sugars and starches have on us. Science says that it hits the brain and lights it up like drugs and alcohol do. Science says it's not our character that's called into question, but our food choices.
Change your food / Change your life!
Sugars and Starches definitely lead me to abuse my privilege!
I do and WILL abuse my privilege! I will run right over fullness and keep going. I will not listen to the warning signs coming from my waist band. I will stop looking in the mirror and seeing the puffiness return to my face and I will be gone!
I use and abuse food. I don't handle myself well. I think I've got it and I don't!
"Sorry honey, you've ABUSED your Privileges with sugars and starches"
Yep, that's me!
