...and now for something completely different

Thursday, April 23, 2015

or completely the same. I'm not sure.

But I do know that I can't continue living like this. If I don't change, nothing will.

So what is stopping me?

What am I afraid of?

Am I afraid of staying in pain?

Am I happy in staying like this and constantly hiding under men's XL shirts?

Am I afraid of actually being seen as desirable?

No matter how badly I want to be svelt, what's holding me back?

Do I not feel like I'm worth it?

Is it better to live in pain & fear?

Is my addiction to carbs THAT strong? I can only liken it to heroin.

    Millions of healthy people in the world have a friendly relationship with carbs, though not with modern fatty/salty snack food versions. (In the Blue Zones, where there is a high percentage of people who live disease-free into their 90's, carbs are THE major food category.)You can, too! It isn't fun to deal with the urges associated with them, but they DO respond to firmness and practice. Since it's very unlikely to stick to a regime without them, it really makes sense to get to work on committing to reasonable amounts, knowing that slips are just part of the adjustment to eating better rather than signs of failure.

    Think in terms of a good year to get good at it, and more time after that to refine the skill. It can even be fun!
