What are the fears?

Fear of not eating at a certain time of the day
Fear of being hungry
Fear of not having food to eat when I am hungry

What is Self-forgiveness?
It is the process by which an individual forgives oneself for accepting and allowing self to separate from objective reality, releasing positive and negative value judgments such as good or bad, right or wrong, positive or negative - as subjective interpretations of reality regarding something or someone that leads to stability as breath. 

Writing Self-forgiveness Statements:

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to fear not eating at a certain time of the day believing that if i don't have 3 meals in a day, I will  not have enough nutrition, where I am assuming that whatever I take during breakfast, lunch and dinner, is nourishing for the body rather than seeing and realizing that it is formed out of habit and usually i just eat what i can put my hands on, rather than realistically eating food in a way that will not endanger its survival - through this, I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to fear being hungry believing that the pain of being hungry is like dying, so desires to eat food as fast as I can where I just get food that is available in the store to have a feeling of fullness which i defined as the normal way of dealing with hunger - an empty stomach being filled with food that gives me a feeling of fullness, instead of using food for nourishment and looking at what food is going to nourish the body, also looking at how I can organize my time to eat when the body needs nourishment and not procrastinate believing that it is secondary to things I do that will give me some money in the future or things i do that will give me happiness and bliss like when i am in the middle of  a lively conversation with friends or family or attending a group event, that - 'it can wait', instead of realizing i have abused the body for so long in so many ways, that i have to stop abusing the body and give it nutrition that it needs physically and also stop resourcing the physical body for energy like a laptop plugged on the wall, as the mind - within having internal conversations in my mind, reacting etc. which like electricity, is energy being used by the mind for it to exist - so the nourishment from food we eat that is converted to energy is taken or resourced from the body.

Commitment To Correct Myself

I commit myself to eat when my body needs food which I will walk and test for myself rather than eat according to a habitual way of eating at certain times of the day, that is mind-directed and not self-directed.

I commit myself to when and as I see myself fearing being hungry - I stop and breathe and instead of rushing to get whatever food there is available to eat to survive, slow myself down and take food that I have tested - that does not spike the blood sugar to a point where it endangers the body's survival, food portions that i eat in awareness and food that will not endanger my body's survival and make it available daily in the refrigerator.

I commit myself to use my calendar to look at what I will eat daily and make sure that the food items i need to prepare my food is in my house or those that needs refrigeration, is in my fridge.

I commit myself to within self-care include not only physical health but mental health and social well-being as well as I am the physical self, the mind self and the social self so I will include self-forgiveness and self-correction for mental health - to rather than see things from my mind's eyes - interpreting reality within my mind, see things from my physical eyes - where I see reality for what it is and not for what i made it to be within my mind, being aware of who i really am - as the breath, aware of the consequence outflow of what I think, say and do. So, as i assist in creating balance in my body, release fears, cravings I have in my mind, to also see how I can assist in creating a world that supports social well being and equality so that I can create a balanced ecosystem in 'my within' and in 'my without' - as a part of the whole - as wholeness.

I commit myself to look at my food log and be aware of what I eat and look at what's in the food I eat and how my body reacts to food i eat in terms of blood sugar upswing or downswing

I commit myself to expand the meaning of the words 'hunger' and 'procrastination'

Why am I expanding or redefining words?

Words are like microchips that has in it for example, thoughts, imaginations etc. that is an interpretation of reality in our mind. It is defined within what is best for us, as individuals, which is based on competition within survival of the fittest . So, in expanding or redefining a word our goal is to align its meaning to what the word is in physical reality - which is mutually beneficial for all of us, humans, plants, animals etc. as it is what the word is, realizing that we can forgive ourselves for the meaning we gave it and correct ourselves - giving it a meaning we can live and express ourselves as, in physical reality that aligns to what is best for all -  as Living Words.

Word Web
Hungry
feeling a need or desire to eat food

Procrastinate

Postpone or delay needlessly

My Expanded Definition:


Hungry
feeling a need or desire to eat food
-
The need or requirement to eat food most of the time is coming from the mind so it is important to check if it is a mind need for food or a physiological need for food. Giving the body food when it has low blood glucose levels is going to support the body because it treats fasting and hunger as stress.

Procrastinate
postpone or delay needlessly
- When one motivates oneself within ones mind, that the task will be done at a later date, in the future, it will have a consequential outflow. If one is making something now that will create an effect that will benefit all in the future, this effect will be delayed. The present makes the future.
