The EXACT and Specific Way I Beat Emotional Eating and Stopped Abusing Myself with Alcohol
Disclosure: For some readers this will be as clear as day. For others it will be quite abstract and ambiguous.
I’m attempting to explain a process that took place within me, in the space between my two ears, over the course of years, maybe a few decades.
Did it have to take that long?
And that’s one of the main reasons I’m putting it into words here, as best I can.
I know that this story of reflection will help other readers shorten their time to success and help them bypass many unnecessary obstacles and potential blocks.
So, in my head, I wrote this letter of agreement to myself.
And today, I’ve actually typed it out for the first time, to share it with you and to also give you a printable copy to use as your own – and to share with at least one other person today, so that we can help them just the same…
The Most Important Agreement I Will Ever Make With Myself
Today, I place highest priority on my health. Not on washboard abs, a sculpted chest or muscular arms – but on my overall well-being – my total wellness.
The quality of my life and longevity with strength and vigor are my guiding lights. And my decisions, choices, actions and habits are guided by those lights.
I fully admit, I don’t like the way I feel after I’ve eaten too much and I don’t like how I feel after I’ve consumed too much alcohol or sugary beverages.
Although it all tastes great and feels good going down – I do not like how I feel, function and look afterwards. I also do not like the negative impact those repeated actions and habits have on my health and well-being.
I am changing all of this from today, forward.
Seeing my health & medical vital stats slowly get worse every year is something I am not proud of, and vow to change that starting today.
What goes on inside my body dictates the quality of my life from this day forward.
My health impacts every aspect of my life.
I deserve to be in my best health and my loved ones deserve to have the best, strongest and most reliable version of me in their lives.
It is my responsibility and mine only – to ensure that I live up to my word that I am declaring officially today in this agreement.
I will refer to this agreement whenever I feel the need to remind myself. Or share it with others for their benefit and well-being.
If by some chance you are reading this right now – don’t let it be a waste of your time – let it be something of significance to you. And share it forward to let it help someone else, as well.
I’ve come to realize that there are so many outside forces in our society that either blatantly, or ever so subtly and insidiously, take us, or keep us, off track and and drifting in behaviors that are self-destructive and self-abusive – but since almost everyone is in this mode of living, it seems to be normal.
And maybe it is the norm – but it surely isn’t right and it certainly isn’t healthy. The evidence is clear, when we just observe humans coming and going in daily life. And we consider the overloaded state of our medical system.
So I am totally fine being abnormal.
I thoroughly enjoy it and I am totally at peace being of a different mindset than the collective drifting crowd.
Yes, I’ve been an emotional eater. And I will continue to be – but I will change the cause and effect of the emotions I allow to influence my actions.
My desire to live in health and strength will fuel my emotions that drive my proper actions.
My desire to avoid the actions that outside forces, people or companies what me to take, will fuel my emotions that drive my actions aimed at the outcomes I want for myself, not what others want for them.
I will employ self-awareness.
I will remind myself of the pain and self-disgust I put myself through during the times of excessive and unnecessary overeating and drinking.
I will remind myself of the fear and disgust of seeing my health profile get worse each year.
I will let those thoughts fuel my new mindset, my new paradigm, my new view of my place in this world and how I will live the moments of my life in it.
