No, I'm not trying to pry into your personal life! The status I wonder about is your relationship with food. For some, this relationship is more sensitive than any other. Just like children learn a large part of their social and moral skills and values from their parents, studies show that children are equally influenced in their relationship with food.  How many of us perceive food is more than likely a product of how we were raised. We parents are able create both negative and positive influences in our children.  

In many households food is used as a reward and at times also a punishment.  In many families this is not uncommon, especially over the past two generations.  But we can’t let this become another one of our excuses to over indulge.   And as you have heard me say time and time again, where excuses end progress begins.  I hear a lot of people complain about the fact that they can't get their food under control because their mom, dad, grandma, aunt, etc…always used food as a crutch.
