In a moment of pure frustration, during one idle moment of work last week, I let my vulnerably shine through and I placed an order for this book.
My eating habits hold me back. They prevent me from being the best version of myself. It’s sad really, to think of all the times I have let negative self-image and “fat talk” hold me back. And although I like to think I put on a good front, I still face a defeatist in the mirror every day.
When I get back into my groove of exercising regularly as I have this month in particular I begin to talk stock of other areas of my life. To weed out what isn’t making me happy and to make decisive changes to be better.
Enter in restrictive yo-yo dieting. I assure you I have tried it all. From hypnosis and medication to Adkins and Weight Watchers it has always been a mindless wave of ups and downs.
At the ripe age of 24 years old I am exhausted. I yearn for freedom from food. From obsessing over calories, from wondering how to say no to an extra portion when I am already full, and from binge eating.
I haven’t figured it out. It seems that every step has led me right back to where I started.
So I am trying something new. This book has been called revolutionary. If there is even a glimmer of hope that it will help me with my struggles then it is worth a shot. I haven’t opened it yet. But I intend to read it cover to cover in hopes of learning whatever it is that I am missing.
I want to make peace with food.
