I watched a special on tv by Suze Orman. She is the lady that talks about money. Her show was about the 5 laws of money and the life lessons of money. I learned alot!!!

One thing she said about money is that it doesn't have power. What you do with it, is what is powerful. It won't just get up and walk by itself to go invest, or go spend. I had a lightbulb go off and think that is just like food. potato chips don't have Power over me, they don't just get up and walk into my mouth, I put them there. I have the power. something so simple, yet so wonderful. http://disboards.com/images/icons/icon3.gif

That is a total life lesson that can be applied to any part of your life....especially food. Thanks for sharing.

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! Don't you just love lightbulb moments? :)

I sense a moment of enlightenment on it's way for many people, Princess Vija! ;)

Believe, you are right on!

A great lesson, Vija! I sometimes get caught in that trap of thinking that I can't resist the food. But I've decided of course I can! And I also celebrate every little step I make (like not eating chicken fingers - one of my very favorite foods - when I went out to lunch with my friends).

I love it when you get profound Princess V ;)

Seriously, you are right. We have power over food. I'm going to print this off and put it on my fridge.
