It Works if You Work It!!!

Thursday, February 10, 2011

Good morning everyone. I'm feeling positive today and today believe I can really do this plan and be successful. I am also starting a workshop on the Sugar and Food Addiction team entitled Sugar...the Hidden Eating Disorder. I am really looking forward to delving deep and getting some answers as to why my issues around the food still plague me after all these years. I will be required to go deep inside and really search for reasons why I do what I do (or should I say did what I did), even when I don't want to. I thought I was really looking forward to this journey, but have been putting off starting the workshop. I have read through the materials for the last week and then....I decide to postpone or avoid taking the first step, always with a "good" excuse. I know that recovery requires doing the footwork, but I still stay stuck. What am I afraid of? What is the worst that can happen? What will I learn about myself? So, regardless of my feelings or my fears, I commit to picking a quiet time tonight, grabbing my journal, and getting down to business. I am reminded of a slogan from a twelve step fellowship that says....."It works if you work it", so that's what I'm going to do.

    Yep yep sugars and grains - I just loaded Wheatbelly on my Kindle - excited to see what it says - oh and Try Primal vs Paleo

I am more a Mark Sisson girl but tend to low carb it as that works well for me emoticon

And you are right on! It only works when you work it!!

I'm about to start reading this book called "Made to Crave" that focuses your deepest desire with God & not food. I wish you nothing but the best! Keep me posted!

Take care~

    Hi Mary Ann
Awesome blog. You are doing the right thing in determining and in the change of old subconscious beliefs that have hindered your journey. In the years I have been in Florida, we have had workshops and I have seen so many people finding and changing those old beliefs and habits that have been problems. I believe you are ready and you will find success in your search.

    I totally agree: in fact, it only works if you work it.

    Oh my goodness! Read my last blog! :-) We must both have the same fears. Great minds, and all that, of course.
