The Real Issue
Tuesday, June 14, 2011
I'm slowly putting together this magnificent puzzle that makes up who I am. I was attacking pieces of my life that were not working with the hopes it would all fit. As if a patch here and a small change there would make everything better. This is not the case.
My issues with food and my body were worse than I ever wanted to admit. I am learning to forgive myself now and making the mental changes needed to allow this puzzle to come together just right. I was fine working on the body through strength training but one small slip turned into a mini disaster for me mentally and I've had a tough time getting back on the fitness party train. The body cannot change without the mind. I get it now.
I cannot thank my partner enough for listening to me and helping me realize rational things we can do together to begin making progress towards our goal. She is my best friend and I love her so much. I hope everyone can be as lucky as I to find their someone who makes everyday better than the last one. Ten years later and I still find new ways to be delighted and in love.
I am ever grateful for the infinite wisdom I find here from people working on their lives and changing their outlook. I am inspired and humbled by those who were able to begin looking at the mental aspect of changing one's health. I look forward to learning more from you.
