Loving You More

Do you love yourself more than that slice of Firehouse's chicken barbecue pizza? More than that slice of Granny's apple pie? More than that bowl of Dreyer's cookie dough ice cream with homemade hot fudge?

Yesterday I decided I loved Great Harvest's pumpkin chocolate chip bread more than I loved myself and ate two slices. I've been nauseated ever since.

This saying is going to be another weapon in my arsenal of "how to trick myself into making healthy choices." I'm going to simply think, "I love myself more than I love ______" You can enter your own vices - you know mine will be some form of chocolate.

Any advice that helps you stay strong?

  1. I followed your link from your Facebook post. Great blog! Wish I loved myself a little more too. (I know that pumpking choc. chip bread, it's definitely hard to pass up.) I'll be back for more motivation to stay healthy and strong. You're awesome!

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog and the comment. My son is doing better than I expected, (he absolutely adored his dad) but I also expect that this can change at any point. That's a great way of thinking, I'll have to try that one myself!

  7. What a good idea! I always seem to find myself eating at night even when I know I'm not actually hungry. Then I feel kind of full and sick afterwards. Maybe I'll try your saying and see if it works for me too!

  8. I keep using it. I'm such a headcase with eating sometimes I have to employ every trick in the book and sometimes that doesn't work!
    Thanks for stopping by Jill.
