Thanks so much for watching my video blog and for expressing an interest in my mission. I have been thinking about this for a long time but could not get started as long as I was dulling my mind and senses with too much food and alcohol. It'll be a challenging task, but I'm looking forward to trying to make a difference over here in Japan.
What an insightful comment you left on my blog about not starving to death. I am so intrigued by what you said, because after I wrote that blog, I thought it was very incoherent and that the parts were not related to each other. If I had turned it in in a class, it would not have received a good grade for that reason, but somehow that is what came out when I started to write, so, like you, I wondered why I switched topics. I think that from very early in my life, I was starving, not for food but for attention, and of course, I tried to substitute food for love, as so many of us here at SparkPeople have done in our lives. But it doesn't work!
So you are right--something's missing in my story, and even though I am doing very well at the moment (in terms of food issues) and feeling secure, the raw emotions that correct eating brings to the fore are making my future uncertain. Are there things I've been anesthetizing myself against that, when the anesthesia wears off, I will be unable to accept? Will I be forced to make a big change? It's a little scary, but I have to find a way to fill this void, without resorting to food.
Thank you again for your thought-provoking comment. I think I wrote you earlier that I have often admired your comments on others' pages, and today I'm adding you as a friend. I look forward to getting to know you better.
