The mental part of weight

Thursday, October 25, 2012

This week I began reading the book: Women Food and God. I have been on the whole mentally preparing myself for this weighlosing journey hoping to make this a permanent stick. I was only into the book a few pages before it had me boohoo'n about everything.

I started digging into my past, the times in my life that I feel really trigger my "fat thinking". I think my pre-teen years was it for me, moving to a new neighborhood into what seemed like a new culture...more like culture shock for me. I was starting a new school and I had no friends for most of my teen years so I turned to food for comfort. I can remember indulging with no filter; no restraint.

I'm not sure where this road of discovery will lead me but I can see how my past has affected my present. At some point I must say enough is enough and begin the growing process. I have a long way to go, I am in no rush but I have one goal and that is success.

    It's awesome that you are examining the reasons why & you can do it! I have struggled myself for years and weight loss really is mental as much as physical. Keep up the focus and do it for you - you deserve the best! emoticon

    Good for you. I think uncovering the reason why we do what we do, is sooo important. emoticon

    You are wise to examine the past. I feel like I need to understand where I've been so I don't have to go back there again. Best of luck with digging deep. It's not easy, but then nothing worth doing ever is.
