I appreciate your comment on my blog. I can totally handle the criticism, but I thought I'd follow up with you because you may have misunderstood me (actually, I commented after you, but wasn't sure you'd check back, haha).
Perhaps we both simply became unhealthy for different reasons...to the extent that you cannot relate to mine. I am not blaming other people for my problems - I am saying the people who said they would support me are insisting that I be in an environment I've told them I can't be in.
They are contributors to my problem. Not sources.
Specifically, I am an emotional eater and, as someone new to my journey towards wellness, am still NEW to learning to curb my cravings and impose self control. It is not something I have practiced in many years. This is week 6 for me. I have learned to control myself when I am BY myself but NOT when I am around others. I have been open with those close to me and they said that they would support me. They just haven't actually taken any actions to actually do that. Perhaps I would be less frustrated with them if they said they would never help at all.
I admire you for never feeling out of control and such a trait is something I hope to be able to grow into (sooner would be better). But it is not a strength I currently share with you.
