I’d like to blame anxiety,depression,& stress for me not losing weight. Those do contribute,no doubts about it. What I don’t like to admit is my contribution to my rapid weight gain. I am not using the tools & info I have for losing weight. I carrying on eating microwave garbage,cuz I don’t have a stove. I want my comfort foods…foods that stick to the ribs & remind me of my childhood. Those foods are like a warm,comforting,much needed hug. I feel safe eating those foods,protected,& secure. I am an emotional eater. Food is my reward & its my companion,my best friend. I feel safe surrounded by foods,books,& journals. I love to eat,read,& write. The thing is,I can’t eat huge amounts of food.
I want to exercise,but use the excuse,I have no energy & can’t stay awake. I don’t want to exert myself to clean an area for my exercise stepper. I’ve lost my dumbells,again. Hah! I want to lose weight eating high fat foods & sitting on my lazy ass. That’s why I am attracted to subliminals,mantras,visualization,self hypnosis,& EFT. I want to think & become slender.
I won’t even get into me binging on booze nightly.
