There is research that suggests that there are certain spots during weight loss for the morbidly obese that may be easily sabotaged. Generally those spots are at the weight when something difficult may have happened, according to what I have researched. One of the ways to move through a traumatic event that is "stuck" in the limbic, or primitive, brain is to use EMDR, which helps to neurologically process it so that it becomes unstuck and can recede into the past. I have several of those potentially "stuck" spots and did some EMDR yesterday with a trusted person. It was extremely helpful, if tiring. But I can say without a doubt that I am doing all I can to ensure that I can be successful at regaining and maintaining health!
