One of my life goals is to make clear, positive and separate my love of cooking (and love of good food) from my habit of eating for love.
Is it possible for a habit that has gifted me with repeated bouts of obesity with all the trimmings ever to be viewed as positive?
Hmmmmm. First of all I will need to clean up my language. This site wouldn’t let me say sh__, even if I had a mouth full of it, and I do not mean that as a criticism. I suspect that it is actually an example… of the kind of logic that has me saying and thinking the phrase “eating for love.” Gonna have to hunt this bunny to it’s hole. Stay tuned.
*** When I say "clean up my language", I'm not talking about censoring my vulgarity. I am talking about revisiting catchy phrases that are actually obfuscating that which they would describe... platitudinizing? Blue laws have a way of working in favor of the very things they would prohibit. I have a feeling using grossly inarticulate simplifications to describe my eating history works in much the same way. Although I have not fleshed it out as yet, the phrase "eating for love", although it means well, is actually doing more harm than good. Why is this important? Because some very, very specific things have branched out into all manner of destructive behaviors through the course of my years. What I am looking for is the thread of truth that runs through all this muck.
