“It’s not a diet; it’s a lifestyle.”
Yeah, BS. Anything that doesn’t allow me to go crazy on doughnuts and mozzarella sticks isn’t a lifestyle.
Okay, not really.
I’m having quite a bit of difficulty adjusting my mindset here. I really don’t want to be on a diet for the rest of my life. However, as a diabetic, there are certain lifestyle changes I need to make. They aren’t convenient, and they aren’t enjoyable, at least as of this moment. But, with a little adjustment in my thinking, I can shift from a diet mentality to a lifestyle mentality.
So, what’s keeping me from seeing this as a lifestyle? I honestly have no idea. There are moments when I think “Oh yeah, I can do this forever!” Then there are others when it’s all I can do not to buy out the entire potato chip aisle.
How do you view healthy eating? Do you see it as a lifestyle, or is it more of a rhythm of healthy choices with indulgences mixed in?
