I have had a complicated relationship with you for most of my adult life. Growing up you were part of celebrations and parties or could serve as comfort during the loss of a loved one. When I got out on my own, you definitely shifted to comfort as I was in a complicated situation and food seemed to soothe me/make me feel better. What I did not like was the weight gain that came with all that “comfort”. I got married, joined a commercial weight loss program and lost a significant amount of weight-felt good about myself, others validated me and my efforts. But it was freaking hard to keep up this new found body that I was in-so many unhealthy habits crept up in an effort to show up on the scale and see what I deemed to be the prized number at the time. I yo-yo’d over the years, and if we fast forward to now, I have put on weight and weigh more now than I have ever weighed in the past. I saw a counselor for a few sessions and they introduced me to the book Intuitive Eating, but it never really took off for me. I love one of the authors, I watched and listened to so many interviews with her, she is fabulous and that laugh is contagious. I don’t know if it was because the counselor was not well versed in Intuitive Eating or if I wasn’t ready for it at the time? I don’t know. But I can tell you that I’m super unhappy in my current state-I’ve had to repurchase my wardrobe to accommodate my bigger self. I get frustrated during some workouts as I have to modify some of the moves, but I’m also humbled because I used to do this in the past with no problem. I love to scrapbook, but do not have many pictures of myself for the past year OR if I do, they are creatively cropped to not show how much I have gained. How do I balance you? I’ve tried restriction in the past or putting limits on myself and that did not go well! How do I get back to a place where I am comfortable around you and ultimately with myself?
