Feeling States

Everything we want, we want because we’re hoping for a feeling state. It’s not the actual thing – it’s what that thing can bring us emotionally. Whether it’s weight loss, a new car, a boyfriend, etc. We want it because we believe it will make us feel positive emotion – belonging, security, happiness, whatever.

When I boil it all down, I want to feel proud. This desire motivates me. It’s why I want what I want.

I feel proud whenever I use food to nurture my body rather than abuse it.
