I love sweets and most health experts say that I can not enjoy donuts, cookies or candy if I want to be healthy. But I love sweets. lol. The same people who tell me I can’t have a donut have no problem drinking beer and wine at social gatherings. I understand that I can make better choices in regards to what I eat. I am all for eating fruits and granola bars. :) But when I have restricted sweets from my diet it made the desire stronger. After the restriction is over, I binge on sweets to make up for lost time.
My goal is to find balance. I am looking for the right balance that allows me to enjoy all kinds of food.
It is funny the less I restrict myself from eating sweets, the less I desire them. I am learning to trust my heart. It reveals my true desire and gives me what will really make me happy. Donuts don’t always make me happy but rather sluggish. I want to eat things that make me feel great and treat myself to something sweet once in a while. Taking the restriction off food takes the pressure of trying to be "perfect" and gives me the grace to find what best works for me. We are all different and it is important that we embrace our uniqueness.
In summary, finding balance is a daily journey. Take the pressure off by removing food restrictions and take ownership of your choices. As you go you will find your way.
