Make Friends–Not Food–the Focus

We love eating out. But beware of the “before” and “afters.” Just last week, my husband and I were on date night and I asked the server not to bring the cheesy biscuits. The server—sorry, “seafood specialist”–said, “Really? Nobody ever turns away the cheesy biscuits.”

A look around the restaurant and I knew she was right. I knew the thinking pattern—I was there. Every meal out required “before” and “afters” and if there weren’t any, I felt robbed! That helped slab on about 85 extra pounds to my thighs. Eating out is entertainment, but the health issues that accompany obesity are not entertaining at all. Focus on the people you are with or just not having to cook that meal as the entertaining part.

Make caring about yourself and your friends the celebration, not the “before” and “afters.”


About jamieweilhealthcoach

I'm on a mind-body-spirit journey. At first, I thought health was about the physical body, but I'm discovering it's so much more than that. I've learned that it's more about serving and connecting with others than anything else. It's about being in the world in a blissful way. Before I blog, I meditate on what my readers need to hear--what will inspire them. Then, I write it. (
