Traveling in the Wrong Direction?

This idea made so much sense to me. It’s one of those ideas that hit me like a ton of bricks so I had to share it.

Say you were in Texas planning to drive to New York. After a few hours of driving you see a sign that says “California – 10 miles”. You would obviously know you were going in the wrong direction and turn around immediately.

Let’s say that you keep going in the wrong direction and you do end up in California. Now you’re completely on the opposite side of the country and far away from your original destination.

How pissed off would that make you?

It’s obviously clear that you should’ve turned around at the first indication that you were traveling in the wrong way. But this happens in life. We make a goal and sometimes travel in the complete wrong direction.

I remember when I was struggling with weight, I would make a decision that I would get back down to my original weight of 120 lbs. and maintain that weight. That was my goal. I would do really well for a week or two and then I would binge eat. Binge eating is the same as me driving to California when I originally planned to go to New York.

I’ve learned know to notice the signs of binge eating, which is the signs of going in the wrong direction.

Now I can say that I maintain staying in New York (my goal of 120 lbs.) and if I feel an urge to binge I know not to travel in that direction. In the end it will only bring about frustration and make New York further away.

Take a look at some of the actions you may do that makes you angry. Are you traveling in the wrong direction?

Take the wheel and steer it towards your goals.

However…..

Enjoy the ride. Don’t force yourself to eat all diet foods and not allow yourself to enjoy anything. You can enjoy whatever foods you like as long as you keep them in portion control.

To this day, if I want ice cream or pizza — I have it! And I enjoy it! I don’t eat 3 or 4 bowls of ice cream or a whole pizza pie. I enjoy a few spoonfuls of ice cream until I’m satisfied and enjoy every bite. Or I’ll have one slice of pizza and a salad to fill up on.

This is how thin people do it!

They enjoy whatever they’d like but in small portions. They allow themselves to have it all but just not all at once.

Don’t get me wrong though — I don’t always eat junk food or want junk food. I do eat healthy most of the day. I fill up on veggies, fruits, whole grains, and try to eat as much natural foods as possible so I get all my body’s necessary natural vitamins and minerals. Plus I feel so much better and have more energy when I’m eating right.

So stay on your path, watch out for things that might take you off your path, and enjoy the ride!
