Delicious Diary Entry
"A healthy dose of motivation with a twist"
My name is Ms. Delicious Diary and my job is to see how my clients are really doing when it comes to their weight loss journey. My favorite clients are Super Size-It Sally and Low-Calorie Lucy, along with their close knit group of friends. They all have their own way of dealing with their issues, and the funniest nicknames to prove it as you will see as you read their diary entries each week. I hold the key to the diary in this special little green bag. My fingers are itching to unlock the diary and see their weight loss or gain, and check their delicious food entries.

Super Size-It Sally:
Page 33 reads: Lilly regretted it the moment she swallowed the last bite of double chocolate, double fudge cake. She does it every time and the results are always the same - guilt, regret, shame and then she just gets steaming mad at herself. Not for eating the cake, but for eating the whole cake, that's the problem. Now what do I do with myself, with all the bad feelings, she mutters under her breath. Should I stuff them down with even more cake? The bad thing about it, the cake sounds really yummy, but it wasn't even that good....
Page 34 reads: Carol put the breaks on her binge eating, it was killing her and she knew it. She also realized that food is not the enemy, it's not bad and it wasn't out to get her. Her relationship with food changed when she realized food was her friend and there to fuel her day not her taste buds....
Lifestyle change of the week!
Stuffing your feelings down with food is a recipe for disaster. It can be compared to mixing a cake recipe and leaving out an ingredient but still expecting a great cake. You can't forget to add the yeast and expect your cake to rise. You can't use food to feed your feelings, stuff them down and expect them not to rise again hungry for more!
