Living within your ideal weight range can help you stay healthy and well.  Managing your weight over your lifetime can be difficult with hormonal changes happening, physical activity level changes, and the great taste of convenience foods.  Be aware that you could be setting yourself up for failure if you are in the habit of using food to reward yourself.

This bad habit of rewarding accomplishments, fixing sad feelings or rewarding good behavior with food will mess with your weight and mess with your head.

When we reward ourselves with food or desserts we may be helping ourselves along the road to obesity.

Do not start this practice with your children and if you are in the habit of doing this for yourself STOP.  This can set you up for and unhealthy relationship with food.  Which in turn can play havoc with your weight.

According to the Yale Medical Group using food as a reward or as a punishment can undermine healthy eating habits.
