Lately, we've had discussion on the Tiger Team about Challenging ourselves to be committed to our own wellness. It set me to thinking that I haven't really reached my greatest challenge with BCL yet, even with work stress or illness.
I am a survivor of child sexual abuse.
I've had plenty of therapy over the years to deal with the issues, but the one thing I've never been able to change is losing weight. Being larger has always been a defense mechanism and there seems to be an automatic trigger when I get to a certain size -- and I start eating heavily again. And I'm getting very close to that weight and size.
So how do you plan for that which is so automatic it just seems to take over? The only thing I haven't tried is to be honest and say what's going on when it happens and balance any stress. There's a wonderful group of people who will support me and that will make the difference this time.
