A windowless church basement on a cold and gloomy February day.
As I descended into the basement and crossed the threshold into this color-less room, my life changed.
The binging ended with one step.
On February 25, 2009, I binged almost every day for 20 years.
On February 26, 2009, the binging ended.
That step didn’t happen because one day, I just decided that I was ready to stop binging.
Instead, that step happened because I knew I could not live one more day binging.
On February 25, 2009, I became blessed with an opportunity.
I could not live like I had been living yet I didn’t know how else to live.
I am excellent at putting on a happy face, yet the 60 extra pounds weighing me down did not lie.
And that extra weight suffocated my soul.
And I searched and invested 10s of thousands of dollars on:
My Addiction with food was progressive, persistent, and pervasive, and eventually, the weight would only increase. The harder I fought, the bigger I became.
Then I took one step towards waving the white flag.
One step changed everything.
The 60 pounds took ten years to leave.
My body fought with letting go of 40 then taking back 20.
Finally, the 20 joined the 40.
The weight did not leave until my body felt safe to let it go.
If you have extra weight, you want it gone in the fastest way possible.
Instead of one step at at time for 100 days, you commit to 100 steps in one day.
The weight may leave for a while….yet it always comes back and usually with a vengeance because:
1. No one ever showed you how to get to the root to your extra weight.
2. No one ever shared that maybe you need a diet.
Yep, you read that right the dirty four-letter d-word:
Hear me out.
You cannot end the affair with food doing what you are doing now.
You need a way of eating that allows your true body to come out of hiding
It isn’t easy. It is tough! You are being asked to:
—-> Change how you eat
—-> Let go of foods that do not serve you
—-> Transform how you interact with others.
—-> Cook healthy food
—-> Create new behavior patterns and new habits.
All that hard work will give you more than you could ever believe possible:
—-> Peace of mind
—-> Clear focused brain power
—-> Smaller clothes
—->Letting go of medications
—->Fewer doctor visits.
And can we admit that smaller clothes and weighing less are AMAZING!
Of course, it does not define your worth; instead, it is the result of you accepting your self-worth!
