I remember a trip to the dentist where he explained how they were going to pull one of my teeth. The actual tooth was under a cap and over the years and there just wasn't' much left. Luckily for me, it's way in the back and it's not viewed unless I pull my mouth wide open. If I want to put a fake tooth in place, it would cost me close to $2000. That is why there is still an empty hole there.
So what does this have to do with weight loss?
Because I now floss much more than I use to. I've always brushed my teeth, but the flossing was an issue, and I also bought a waterpick. Why did all this happen? It was a reaction to a situation.
What if the Doctor said....
You have colon/breast cancer (I'm over 50 and never been scanned )
What if Your spouse said ...
We need to talk / I want a divorce
What if You Car...
Blew its engine due to lack of oil
She mentioned Will Smith's Instagram account and I agree that he is dropping some seriously inspiring knowledge
Will was talking about self-discipline and mentioned how so many foods that are bad for you, and here YOU are CHOOSING to put this stuff IN YOUR BODY. Why are you kicking yourself where it counts? We are choosing things that are not in our own best interest.
Sure we would like to eat whatever you want, but that is going to lead to you getting bad news sometime in the future. You are riding the merry-go-round of misery. Round and round and round you go, when it stops you have some seriously bad health issues.
So in the same way you have to put oil in your car or the engine blows up, you brush and floss your teeth, you have to develop the self-discipline to take care of you. When you bypass the fast food, you are doing self-discipline.
If you are going to win the war against food, you need to win the war against your mind. Command your mind, and you will command your body.
If our friend was trying to lose weight, and we saw them self-sabotaging their efforts we would tell them because we love them. Yet, we turn around and are blind, or refuse to see, the things that we do to sabotage our own efforts.
When I see the new commercials for Coke zero, I don't care how much you tell me it's not bad for me I know better. I know that label has all sorts of things that don't belong in my body. We need to quit calling for the BS that we get thrown into our head multiple times a day, and start putting ourselves first. Yes, JR Mac is smaller than a Big Mac, but that doesn't mean it's good for you. JJ virgin talks about bringing the enemy into your house. She talks about putting poison in your body.
Would you do this?
Then don't let the enemy in your house, and don't put poison in your body.
It's easier said than done, but you are stronger than you think.
