The Cause Not the Symptom
Thursday, December 09, 2010
I'm doing weird things again. On my lunch the other day I walked up and down a flight of steps for 30 minutes. I walked about 4,000 steps last night in a room thats 1/4 of our basement (its empty, round and round and round). It's snowing and the gym is no more. So I've got to do whatever I can. However, I'm taking a big step back to look and see why I am the way I am. My weight loss is the symptom, but what is the cause. You might say emotional eating. OK. Why are you emotionally eating? Probably the biggest reasons include:
I'm going to think about each of these over the next couple of weeks and report back, as well as do my podcasts. I'm attacking my eating. That is the symptom. This is why I've lost and gained the same 10-20 lbs over and over and over. I've been trying to change the sympom. I need to attack the cause.
