Mind and Heart Open

Thursday, June 27, 2013

I just read a blog that touched me greatly and taught me, too. This struggle is really, really tough for many people. You would think by now, with more than 5 decades of fighting obesity and binge eating, and currently feeling rather victorious, I would know all there is to know about battling overeating. But when I read with my mind and heart open, I find new perspectives and idea gems:

* Binge eating is not about food; it is about trying to feel better.

* The desire to binge eat comes on suddenly; physical hunger develops slowly.

* Physical hunger is satisfied by eating; emotional hunger is not satisfied by any amount of food.

Now all three of those statements seem obvious, but they were eye-opening to me when I read them. And each suggests ways to improve my relationship with food and my relationship with myself.
