Live and Learn?

- POSTED ON: Aug 10, 2011

The old saying is "Live and Learn",
but somewhere in my brain, there must be a disconnect,
that causes me to be "slow" when it comes to learning not to repeat
my mistakes involving food-intake. 

Frankly, Stupid, IS the word that accurately describes this mal-function.

I've chosen to make the same food mistakes in
the 50's, the 60's, the 70's, the 80's, the 90's, the 2000's,
and on occasion I find myself still doing it in the 2010's

I give myself a break for my behavior in the 40's,
because I choose not to hold myself responsible
for my overeating errors when I was a very young child.

I don't point this out to be negative.
It is just a fact of my life that I have learned to accept.
However, Acceptance of that truth
doesn't keep me from working to change my behavior.

Leave me a comment.

So what are the same food mistakes you have been making over the last 50 years! I'll tell if you will.

             TexArk, there are too many to list here, but my primary and most serious repetitive mistake is in thinking that I'll only have "just a little bit" of the sweet or salty carbs which often trigger me to binge.

One of my worst repeated mistakes is to plan carefully for "the event" not being over restrictive...just watchful. Then BAM after it is over I fall off the wagon. I think it is the trigger foods that I am allowing myself to eat. I already know I have to send food home with people or with my husband to the office. But I still have a difficult time getting back on track. I can overeat on anything. Sometimes I remember to plan for the "day after." You would think I would learn...hits self upside of head. (I posted this on the wrong spot...I will try to delete.

             TexArk, you state a problem that I face too. I usually find myself emotionally drained "the day after" an event, and a puff of air can knock me off track.
