Keep Truckin' Along...

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

I keep re-reading my various blog entries and it's all a little overwhelming, as Labyrinth said, the ideas are comming fast and furious and I need time to work through them all. I truly feel like I'm making progress, not just spouting words.

No earth shattering stupendous successes to report and I still have yet to complete a week with no snack attack/emtional face stuffing, and this week will sadly be no exception, but I am definately more aware of what is happening before, during, and after and I feel like I cut it off faster now, and actually in some instances avoiding it, so again...good. Little wee victories.

I can attribute part of this lapse in resolve and turning to food for numbing of feelings to the news I got on Mon that my very favorite little horse that has been a project of mine for about a year now is now for sale...I knew I wouldn't have her forever and for the owner the timing is good and the right decision, but on a number of levels that I won't expand upon now, it makes me a little sad.

One door closes and another opens! Fall, even more than spring to me, seems to bring feelings of renewal , so who knows what's around the corner!

    Hey Savoy! I have noticed that many of the insights I have in regards to weight actually translate into many areas of my life. I find myself dealing with things in a different way many times. I know that I am better because of all the trials and attempts. Sometimes you have to create the space and opportunity for new growth. Like a potted plant, I think I get root-bound over time and need to be repotted. I can relate to the sadness of losing and animal friend for whatever reasons. They become part of who we are and will always be remembered.

    emoticon Oh Savoy I completely understand (you know) about losing a horse, even if it is for a sale. So here's to a great home for her - who knows maybe one where you can still visit her

I do think that for those that explore the psychology of weight, you gain these type of insights that seem to explode out of nowhere. I remember having a huge lightbulb moment in understanding how I used my weight gain during childhood as a way of identifying with my brothers (they were punished severely by my dad, I was not, survivors guilt).

They can competely overwhelm us with all this creative energy. Afterwards I always had a lull and perhaps even felt tired and depleted.

The more you understand, then you can let go. I also meant to post yesterday that sometimes when you are faced with overwhelmingly intense habits (snack!) the only way to do manage is to stop thinking, spit it out, and walk out of the room.
