Golden Corral: Help Yourself to Happiness
This, snapped me out of LaLa land.
Help Yourself to Happiness. Think about that for a moment...a majority of people who have weight issues, are emotional over eaters. Is this really a message we should pass along? Help yourself to happiness at an all you can eat buffet? This is the exact behavior that I have been trying to break for years! An over eater seeing this message is almost like inviting a recovering alcoholic to an open bar and saying "help yourself".
Sorry to dwell on that, it just struck a cord with me for some reason.
I do believe that food is love. I believe that family times gathered around food are sacred. However, it's not the consuming of food to the point of near bloat that makes these times happy. It is the enjoyment of one each other's company that does.
"Eat, Drink and Be Merry (in moderation)" is a good way to go.
