    I can definitely relate. There have been so many times when I've felt down and like I wanted to give up and then read positive posts and blogs and realize I can truly do this. Good going for everyone here. -- Lou

Walking the tiger

Monday, September 28, 2009

After a life of compulsive overeating I know I canīt eat "normal" - but I canīt stop eating so Iīll have to find a way to handle food that works for me. The best so far is to have planned healthy meal at regular times and to use OA tools to cope with feelings. The twelve step program worked immedieatly on alcohol, but I was nowhere near being insanely with alcohol, compared with what I do around food. And alcohol is easy because you can totally stop. Eating... well a friend said that "itīs like having a tiger in a cage and you have to take it out and walk it three/six times a day (thatīs why I only have three meals in my food plan, no snacks if the circumstances are not extraordinary, but I prefer to walk the tiger as seldom as possible)
Someetimes I get desperate and think of asking for a gastric bypass, but that is not a solution - Iīll get rid of the weight but not with the disease som my problem will still be there.

Oh but - another day, another chance to have a wonderful life. Letīs walk our tigers with caution today!

Great meeting

Sunday, September 27, 2009

Iīve been to a twelvestep meeting this evening; the theme was "A real life" and it was so interesting to listen to other peoples definition and honest sharing of their hopes and dreams.

I have two layers of dreams - on is very worldly and is about material things and appreciation from others. And I have had both in my life so I KNOW that they are not really important - the important thing is what I think about me, how I feel about myself.

And that is the other layer of dreams - to be content, to live today and appriciate all the things that happens, to meet good and bad with honest feelings, to give and recieve help from others and to enjoy and trust that life is what it is supposed to be.

-holicon anything

Saturday, September 26, 2009

I can get obsessed with almost anything - itīs no good concerning food, work, tv, computer games...

But itīs good when I start something new, like joining Spark People. I get obsessed for a while and spend hours doing stuff, writing things and collecting points. And then - when I know what there is to know - I can go "down" to a more sensible level of using it. Iīm not there yet, I have not explored all opportuintys.

Sitting here...

Friday, September 25, 2009

...when I think I owe other people something - work, love, service, money, help - I tend to feel unsatisfied and stressed because I have the feeling that I should be doing something else than what I am currently doing. Right now Iīm stressed because I have articles to write - but I canīt write them because the people that should answer questions havenīt e-mailed, and I will have to wait... so I should be happy in waiting because there is nothing more I can do.

Just for today... my life is perfect!
