I'm on a Whisky diet. I've lost 3 days already!

If you could choose between loosing 5kg (more or less 10bs) or receiving R1000 ($70) in cash, which one would you choose?  And why?

Its seems that 23% of us have tried or are using diet pills, 47% of us are afraid of puting on weight, 58% of us turn to food, 68% are almost always on diet.

Some of us can't even tell if we're hungry or full or just plain thirsty...we seem preoccupied with food, eating, dieting or pursuing new weight loss information.  We constantly tell each other which foods are good or bad, we say "If only I were 5kgs thinner...I'd [fill in your shitty story]". 

I use food as a comfort and eat for an emotional need other than a physical hunger, I think most of us are in this slot.  Some of us feel guilty after eating because we have over-eaten and sometimes are moods are influenced by what we have eaten or not have eaten.  We constantly examine our bodies, checking out the bad areas, some of us count calories and points, some of us become exercise addicts, secret eaters, secret purgers. 

Why do we battled with our relationship with food and our weight?

We need to stop obsession and listen to our bodies, find out why we have a certain relationship with food.  We need to eat to live not live to eat.  We need to stop looking at the media that dictates we all need to look like fucking sickly stick insects.

Its simple, eat three balanced nutritious meals a day, drink lots of water.  Everything in moderation. 

Yes, it seems so simple and I still can't get it fucking right!

So would you choose the money or the weight?

I'd choose the weight - everytime!  Can I have more than one go?

When I was obese, I wouldn't have blinked about taking the money but these days I will rather take the 5kgs.
Good for you that you will take the kgs instead of the money

I am a simple I use a simple formula.

Eat Less + Move More = Less Weight

It seems to be working for me.

Haha, loved your post line. And yes, I too totally use comfort food as a comfort crutch.

I'd take the money. I'm not skinny, but, as much as it's surprised me to find myelf writing this, I'm happy as I am. Who knew?

I'd probably take the money!

Kage said...

um...i'd take the weight loss, since the cuter i am at work, the more money i'm likely to make.

which of course is also equivalent to healthier i'll never be.
