A couple of weeks ago I got The Binge Eating & Overeating Workbook: An Integrated Approach to Overcoming Disordered Eating. I'm only two chapters in, mainly because the first week I left it at my parents house. After reading the first chapter I am definitely one or the other, not exactly sure which one but either way I am a disordered eater. I do not have a normal or healthy relationship with food. According the the book recognizing this is the first step on my road to recovery and healing. It's that whole admitting you have a problem is the first step thing.
The second chapter was all about BMI and Waist Circumference. When I went through this chapter my BMI was calculated at 43.5 which is in the obese category and my WC was 48" which is in the increase health risks.
They say that making a commitment to your health is an important beginning step. I don't know if I have ever actually committed myself to this journey. Not a hundred percent at least. . One of the definitions of committing it to bind. I don't feel bound to this, but I want to be. I want to be bound to this journey to health and wellness.
