Scales to me now are as useless as a one-legged man in an ass kicking contest. What’s the point of them? It is not like anyone is going to notice if you have lost or gained a few hundred grams, but the effect it can have on your mood is immeasurable.
I now notice the love my Mum puts into the food she creates. For my Mum eating her food meant I loved her and by me not eating it meant I didn’t. From now on the choice is always obvious.
Every day for the past two years I have struggled with Orthorexia, an unhealthy obsession with eating healthy food. Here I want to share with you what it has been like and three things I wish everybody knew about it.
After two years of waiting for that someone I realised that nothing was going to change if I did not change.
You see I had won the trifecta! Not only did I use to be a perfectionist, with a laser beam focus on becoming the healthiest person I could be, I was also a control freak, with a sprinkle of OCD to top it all off. Now please don’t all rush to be my friend!
Through my own journey I have realised that in judging or gossiping about others, I was running away from my own unhappiness and feelings of hurt. Happy people do not feel the need to put other’s down.
Carbohydrates are the bodies main energy source. Without them you are like a walking zombie and that’s not cute for anyone.
