How to stop comfort eating with Janet Jones of Happiness Millionaire

 

Hi, I am Janet Jones, founder of Happiness Millionaire. I have recently started talking to a rock! This helps me navigate the next chapter of my life, the chapter without my 22-year-old son, Murray. The Rock's name is Sylvia-Rose. To learn more about how and why we met, read the first blog - 'If Rocks Could Talk, meet Sylvia-Rose'.

Smile, Sylvia-Rose 🙂
SR. Morning. Just! Do you have to do that?
Jan - Do what?
 
SR - Take a selfie
Jan - Everyone does it. You look cute 🙂
 
SR - Thanks. How are you today?
Jan - I am ok.
 
SR - Even after your drank a whole bottle of wine?
Jan - Boy, do you watch everything?
 
SR - Yes. I saw the crisps and large chocolate buttons. Delicious for sure but you know they make you feel bad and put weight on, which adds to your unhappiness, doesn’t it?
Jan - Yeah. It does.
 
SR - So why the whole bottle? You could have just had a glass!
Jan - Are you intent on shaming me? I just did. People fail. It is ok. I will be strong next time.
 
SR - I am not shaming you. I don’t have that power. You can only feel shame if you give your power away. Take your power back.
Jan - I am taking it back. It was Ok to have a wee binge last night. Things didn’t go as I expected. My heart was hurting. I was missing Murray and I wanteds it to stop. It was Saturday night. I know these times show up to test my strength. That is what you are really talking about, isn’t it? Being strong.
 
SR - Yes, Jan. That is where I wanted you to go with this. You saw the lesson. Next time weakness shows up in temptation of something that doesn’t serve you to be the strong woman you are, go for a walk, meditate, call a friend or write to me. You don’t have to visit to speak with me. I am always with you. I am courage, bravery and love.
Jan - Thanks. I need to go now. I am meeting a friend for breakfast. See you tomorrow. Xx
 
SR - It’s a late breakfast! You need to get a wiggle on, as they say 😂 Bye. Remember, you are not alone and you can talk to me anytime. Xx
