Did you read the title and think, what the heck, I already know the “real” me so why do I need to read this article? Let me tell you.
Time and time again, I can tell you that a struggle with food is less with food and more with YOU. Being aware of the excuses you spout out for not following a nutrition plan is the first step. This means listening to the voice inside your head. Getting it down on paper is huge! First, because it gets it out of your head. Second, because you then can put a bit of perspective on it when you re-read it a few days or weeks later. STOP making excuses for yourself and start becoming self-aware.
Get to know yourself, because you are changing everyday. Not the dark voice in your head, the REAL you. Pick up a new notebook and a pen and start to peel back the layers of your own story, and get to know you.
