Why is this the norm? Why wasn't he purchasing whole wheat bread and fruit? Is the assumption that kids won't eat whole wheat bread or fruit?
We all need to take full responsibility for our choices, but it can be so difficult to make healthy choices when surrounded by foods that are full of fat, sugar, and salt. Let's face it.....for most of us these types of foods are very appealing. Even if we know that we will regret eating these after the fact, the immediate gratification is so tempting.
As I mentioned before, I live in an area that has one of the largest populations of obese people in the country. Are other areas like this? Do some of you live in areas where most people eat healthy and exercise?
On another note, I have continued to eat crap this week. I've made horrible choices. I've made regular stops at the grocery store for cookies, ice cream and other junk food. I'm once again bingeing in secret and hiding the evidence. This is a dangerous trend that is quickly becoming a habit. I'm having difficulty finding the motivation and desire to get back on a healthy track. I can't seem to look past the immediate gratification of eating sugar and see the long list of negative ramifications. I haven't thrown in the towel yet, though. I can do this.
