We over glamorize the food we eat. We let food define our happiness and satisfaction. Food and shopping can never be hobbies or therapies.
Oh! a birthday without a big-fat-cake is a sacrilege, holidays without non-stop sugar munching are not worth it, buffets without over-load of desserts is a waste on money – all absolute nonsense.
I am not saying that I would have a birthday without a cake or go for buffets and not have desserts … what I am saying is that I do not obsess over it. I do not have to have it! It’s like you drink water, breathe air, you eat food . It doesn’t require neurotic focus or attention. While I still crave chocolates and cakes among other forms of suicidal food, I have managed to (with a lot of will power) make healthy choices, which kind of balances out my once-in-a-blue-moon acts of sin. Though I am nowhere near a perfect lifestyle, weight or health… but I am surely and consistently trying to stay on the path of attaining one, that ought to count for something, right?
