Digging Deeper

Tuesday, February 21, 2017

It's easy to look at weight loss and come up with all the publicly approved reasons for needing to lose weight.....or wanting to lose weight.....it would help my RA, good for my joints, I'll look better and have more energy for the family reunion....but what if those aren't really the reasons to lose weight. Of course there's nothing wrong with any of that but digging deeper is producing some really interesting but not necessarily publicly approved thoughts going through my head. What if the real reason is revenge??? What if I'm doing this because I'm tired of being left out of activities because family and friends are embarrassed to be seen with me and now I want to lose the weight and look good to be included......it's a long story.....

But this could backfire in a really bad way. If I should then be included I would know that that was indeed the reason for my exclusion. Hmmmm......

There's been a lot written on the emotional connection of weight loss and after going through many many many years of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual abuse....like more years enduring that than not during my life....I find myself in an interesting place of really not knowing who I am, what i'm here for, or why I even want to continue. WOW! I guess I really have some digging and thinking to do. Getting rid of some extra emotional baggage may indeed shed some serious pounds. I'd call that a win-win situation!!
