wow,,,how amazing is that? I came to my page and looked at my blog and the very same challenge came up this morning - imagining that I am throwing away my clothes that are too big. I have a whole different visual about it this morning. it is easy to toss those clothes aside and get on with my life. I see myself walking away with a spring in my step on a warm sunny day, happy and content in my life.
it is also a big scary because I am, once again working on my food addictions. I struggled with them about a year ago and am back - working on my recovery. but this time, I am good with it. I know how I got where I got and I know that I did make big strides last time and I am committed to being well. Dr. Pedro Lazaro and Debbie Danowski have come alongside this time with their book "Why Can't I Stop Eating?". it is a well written, caring book about how to gently take a look at your food addictions and how you can help haul yourself out of the hole.
it continues to be difficult to admit that I am a food addict, but by being honest with myself I will reach my goals here on Spark and I will be well.
I suppose my "I can't believe it" title is about being amazed that I am back here working on my addictions and also that I have grown because I see this challenge differently than I did even a month ago. I am dealing with the fears in my life and winning.
Spark on people! IT works.
