We’ve all been there….in a situation where we ate too much at a meal. Or, maybe we just ate a certain food we didn’t “think” we should have. What did you do afterwards? Did you beat yourself up with negative self-talk? Comments like “I’m no good, I don’t have any will power!” Or, maybe you said something like “I’ll never be thin, I might as well just keep eating because I’ve already blown it. I’ll start my diet on Monday!”
Why are we always so hard on ourselves? Have we ever really stopped to think about the impact those horrible words have on our bodies? Would we ever talk to a friend or loved one that way? Of course not, but we continually talk to ourselves this way. We need to look deep inside and ask ourselves why?
