Everyday is NOT Thanksgiving
We have a family friend and his favorite line is "You can't eat like everyday is Thanksgiving". When I first heard him say this I thought it was sooooo funny. Then I thought about it. Sometimes I do eat like it's Thanksgiving. LOL. Thanksgiving is the one time during the year I think everyone gets a pass on eating 2nds and/or 3rds. However, you can't carry that same behavior into the rest of the year and beyond.
Oftentimes when we think we're hungry we're actually only craving something we want. Think about it. Jesus fasted for 40 days. I can't even imagine 40 days without food because we're so trained to eat all the time. Truth be told your body can live off water alone for an extended period of time. That oral fixation just has us messed up! LOL.
It's extremely challenging for me to eat healthy as someone who is always in the kitchen cooking. It takes a lot of discipline for me not to indulge in all of the delicious food I prepare for others on a daily basis. However, I try my best not to eat like it's Thanksgiving everyday and I eat something healthy instead.
A lot of my friends are doing a new diet plan and seeing awesome results in only 8 weeks. It takes a lot of discipline and sacrifice and I'm so proud to say they are WINNING! Hopefully we all can take better care of our bodies and not eat everyday like it's Thanksgiving.
