IT'S ALL ADDING UP

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

I was so out of control that I couldn't trust myself to ride through the kitchen on my Hoveround without stopping to snack on something. So I went back to the basics almost 40 years ago when I was an active member of Overeaters Anonymous. I found my original book and started with step one. I am powerless over food and MY LIFE HAS BECOME UNMANAGABLE. It was a big first step to take all over again, what with all my efforts and self-education on food management, nutrition, health, and the like. Now, just a few days into a "relaxed" kind of abstinence from compulsive overeating I feel much more able to manage the circumstances and situations swirling around me at this time. I have a healthy snack if I need it, and have amped up the protein in my meals. That alone can assuage physical hunger, and it's working for me for now. I've seriously invited God into my food journey once again( steps two and three). I've been overweight all my life and each time I come to a new path in this lifelong journey, it makes the long road behind seem so much more worthwhile, and the anticipation of the road ahead so much more interesting . I feel like at this stage I am pulling together all the loose ends of all the plans that have worked for me in the past, with a few new twists and turns to make it new and fresh and exciting. emoticon emoticon for the opportunity to bring it all together.
