Well it's another wonderful rainy day with much of the same in the forecast the whole week end. It will be a great time to work on the household things I put off until a rainy day! I mentioned in group this week that I was going to blog about a topic that a group member brought up and has struggled with recently. What do we do when we are just sick of the journey of lifestyle change, tired of the day in and day out of eating healthy most of the time, weary of working out 3 days a week and just flat sick of having to "be" on this journey. The questions then become why do we get in that place, is there any benefit to being in that place and most importantly, what can we do to walk out of that place. This also ties into the question we have talked about over the last few weeks whether we can become completely free of emotional or compulsive overeating or do we learn to negotiate the journey for life. I would like to ask for your help this week in answering these questions. Even if you have no answers, I would like to hear your thoughts about these three questions.
* WHY do we get so sick, tired and weary of this journey?
* IS THERE any benefit to being in that place?
* WHAT can we do to walk out of that place?
Although we touched on a few of these questions in group, I think there is such benefit in pondering them in ernest for clarification's sake. Understanding how we get there and understanding how we get out is fairly important considering this journey is a lifelong journey.
Thank you for keeping this conversation going. You truly are the smartest people I know!! Stay dry and I'll see you next week.
