Building support network that works
Thursday, June 06, 2013
Started going to Christian Celebrate Recovery group at a church near my home. Promises to prove to be very interesting and powerful at getting to the deeper reasons behind eating. Being that group dynamics are tough for me this is definitely an area of growth for me. I like the spiritual focus of the group and seeking answers of a higher nature, especially as it helps to reprogram my negative thinking and take it to higher ground.
Each week we have to answer lots of questions about ourselves and do a lot of writing which I find very helpful in keeping that focus. Also went back to TOPS to help me have a place where I have to turn in my food chart and weigh in every week, and it helps keep me accountable with my food, being that I can be slippery as an eel. That is why I love the food tracker on SparkPeople..can't lie when you can see those numbers so very clearly.
I am realizing that support is a multi-program experience for me and that is okay. This is a multi-faced issue. Physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. It is a wholistic issue needing a wholistic approach.
