I spend copious hours reading about subjects related to my health and ways to deal with issues such as poor eating habits. I have had people suggest I am avoiding dealing with them while telling myself that I am truly doing something good for myself. Given the years I have spent doing this I would have to agree. What if I had spent that time doing active things like learning how to cook appetizing, nutritious meals or being physically active? I guess the answer is obvious! Sure I have had events intervene in my life such as 2 hip operations but why would those cause me to not act on a healthy lifestyle change? I read about people who are coming from a much more challenging situation such as being bedridden due to obesity or inconstant pain who still achieve amazing success. Why can't I?!
There I go! Something more to research. The vast amount of time I have spent researching has not given me the magic bullet. It's time to just do it a s Nike says.
Addiction sounds like a good theory. The pleasure I get from eating/gorging is immense. In the meantime I have choices e.g. I wait until they find my magic bullet or get doing something productive. There certainly are many things I could be doing to move forward. Start one thing once and ramp up gradually makes sense. I also need to get rid of the perfectionist thinking i.e. if I can't do something perfectly all the time then there is no sense doing it.
