The Hard Questions are Hard!

Friday, December 02, 2011

"Do you like your body?"
"How do you treat it?"
"How do the foods that you eat make you feel?"
"Why don't I love me?"

Isn't it amazing how Google can take you in unexpected places? A search on facing fears somehow brought me to a blog on creating a new relationship w/ your body.

Thanksgiving threw a monkey wrench into my momentum & I'm getting it back. Why can a few days of overeating turn my emotional health so sour? Because I'm stuffing my feelings, that's why. Been down this road before so I know the why. What I need is to master how to stop myself from careening off a cliff & redirect healthfully, not overcorrect to some extreme fad diet.

Answering the hard questions (truthfully) was exactly what I needed. I've had tunnel vision leading me straight to the pity pot & land of self-sabotage. It's time to stop, take a deep breath, & treat myself with compassion.

Have a great weekend!

    I second what Gaye said - we're not alone, there are many of us out here who act/react in the same way. The important thing is, yes, figuring out how to deal with what's causing the action/reaction, and continuing to press forward.
    Well done on continuing on!

    I think that most of us that face the holidays have baggage and we seem to deal with it by over eating and drinking. For many years I thought it was only me that felt like that but now I hear so many people saying the same thing.

    Now, how to change that self defeating attitude.

    Right on Z!
