I am not a dog.

#fattofabover50 #bean #dog

Day 463 - This is a picture of our dog "Bean." He is 6 lbs. He is a dog. I reward him with food. I am NOT a dog. But I am struggling...rewarding myself with food. And I'm really just realizing. How pervasive and insidious it is. Talk about a broken feedback loop.

For me it's almost imperceptible...while at the same time quite obvious. Rough day, happy day, any day quite frankly. Especially when I'm hitting emotional extremes. Tripwire rewards. They add up. I'm essentially stalled at this point in my weight loss journey because of it.

Every day. Every meal. Right foot. Left foot. Tonight, I'm taking both feet to the gym. #GetHealthy, #HealthyLife, #HealthTalk, #thestruggleisreal
