I find it amazing how many times something said in everyday life, not meant to be about getting healthy, really relates.
For example. TBM had a gross thing on his ear. Had it shaved off 3 different times, burned off once. Just now had it cut out. It was cancer. He was told this.
"Shaving it off doesn't get the root."
Just like my journey to healthy living. Maybe not yours, but mine.
I can go gung ho at a weight loss program. Exercise like a machine. Then, much like a car that has just rolled 1 mile over warranty, screech to a grinding halt.
I must get to the root of my overeating. I can't just keep shaving it off the top. I always thought I'd lose the weight and then figure out what my problem was so it didn't come back. Oops, found out that was the wrong order for me!
I have to find out what's at the root of my overeating. WHY do I do it? THEN lose the weight and keep it off.
I really hate how I feel right now. I'm not comfortable in any of my clothes. None of them. Hate the feeling. So, what makes me keep shoveling it in? Good stuff to ponder for sure.
I hiked my butt out this morning for a walk. My knees are killing me. I keep telling myself they'll feel better with every pound I get off.
Just call me Dr. Debby as I'm going to get to the root of this. Yep I am.
Peace be the journey
