I knew I had a problem with my relationship for food long before I seemed help for it. I went on diets knowing I’d fail….(although now I realize that I didn’t fail the diet, but the diet failed me).
The past year has been an amazing learning experience and one of the most difficult years of my life. It has been a roller coaster of emotions, most of the time on the down-slope. I feel like it’s just starting to level out. I am grateful that I have found support, even if it was where I least expected it.
I can’t always articulate what I’ve learned about Intuitive Eating, recovering from an eating disorder, why diets don’t work or why I feel so passionately about all of these things now. So, as I continue on this journey of healing (I really don’t like using these ‘let’s all hold hands’ terms and phrases, but I’m at a loss to how to better word them…bear with me.) … I will share what others’ write as well. Especially when it feels exactly like the thoughts going through my head that I just can’t put into words.
Marci’s latest blog post is exactly that. And I had to dedicate this entire post to hers because it is so dead on.
I hope you will find it as inspiring and insightful as I did.
