Eating right.. Torture?

The most important reason why I want to lose weight is nothing more than trying to be healthy, as I've mentioned before, losing the fats (and the weight) are just the side-effects of trying to be healthy.
Now that I've lost some of the fats, at about normal BMI range, I still continue trying as much as I can leading a healthy lifestyle - by eating right, and exercise regularly.

Interestingly, many people associating eating right/healthily with torture. They said I'm torturing myself by not having what God have given us - to enjoy the food and this life! No point of torturing ourselves that way, and everyone dies anyways!

That's their viewpoint - I respect that.

Well, not that I've not enjoyed the foods before, I've enjoyed it so much without restriction whatsoever back then - at least for the 34 past years (now I'm 36) already - that made me what I was. I've been there fighting with my weight for as long as I can remember - it's not an easy life. I think can write a whole book talking about an experience being a 'big' guy - the problems, frustration, anger, self-esteem, how hard it was, how to remain calm when a child innocently taunt you, or the shame of you're being kick-out of a roller-coaster ride because you can't fit into the tiny seat, or the feeling of when you see the person next to you on a plane/bus is not comfortable because of you.. etc etc )

I do not intend to go back there.

Contrary to popular belief - I don't think I'm torturing myself. I just see the food differently these days - I don't see McDonald's or KFC or any fast-food are categorized as food at all. Let me put that into an example - let's say you see a pizza that has just freshly baked out of the oven.. hhmm, the aroma is enticing, the look of the melted cheeses, the overall toppings.. they looks so delicious.. you think.. YUMMY!!
Now, just imagine suddenly.. your 2-years old angel, out of nowhere, throw his poo and landed nicely on the pizza!!!...  what would you think at that moment?.. it is something you can eat? the pizza is a food to you now? yummy?

Sorry, I exaggerate that too much, but I hope you get my point.

I don't see those things are food anymore - so I don't miss them or don't feel that I'm depriving myself!
I post something similar to that before.

Let's be healthy,
Sher Khan.
