My morning food ritual is to have peanut butter on toast for breakfast, with a side of coffee. It makes me happy, and actually it keeps me full for quite a while!!
This morning it's my second favourite.....bagel with avo, cream cheese and tomato!
A common misonception when people see someone who is overweight, is that they MUST be overeating, binging, purging, eating ALL the wrong things...in order to be the size and weight that they are.
Granted, those are some of the best ways to gain weight.
But, what if I told you that that's not always the case.
What if I told you that i eat a fair bit of "good stuff"...vegetables, fruit, salad....and really only eat the "bad stuff" a handful of times each week?
What if I told you that I estimate my current weight at maybe 15 stone ...(estimated because I haven't weighed myself in around 4 years) ....
But according to govornment guidelines, the "IDEAL" BMI for my height is 10 stone 4pounds.
Well people, I haven't weight 10 stone since I was about 13 years old. Ask anyone who knew me and they'd vouch that at that age I was a slim jim!
I'd look ILL if I were to weigh that now!!
I lost weight through stress and poverty after the end of my first marriage...Landing at 12 stone...and a size 12. .
My "ideal" weight wants to see me as a bag of bones?! REALLY?? .
The point I'm trying to make is that we can overeat and stay slim....or we can eat minimally but well and stay fat.
I am an intuitive eater, as is my daughter. I only eat when I feel hungry, and I try to listen to my body and give it what it's asking for.
SOMETIMES it wants pizza and ice cream....SOMETIMES it wants nothing but all the rabbit food and carbs.
And guess what.... I'm not the "size of a house". Nor am I a "slim jim".
MY perfect size.
MY perfect weight.
MY body appreciates my eating habits and it serves me just as well as the next person.
BMI is the biggest crock of shit scaremongering tactic they ever came up with guys and girls.
It's essential for living. 😊
