Seeking yet again
A body relationship
That sings and dances
Yes, each year it is so tempting to want to start again with a weight loss program. And yet, we don’t really believe that we could be successful for the long term. Or do we?
As I pursued my interest in the idea of Light at Last, I am glad to report that using The Virtual Gastric Band program has brought me the sense of control, freedom and the results that I seek. Have I lost a large amount of weight? No, but I have lost steadily in small amounts and that shows me that my habits have changed and I’m doing what needs to be done. And you can do that too, even if you have a lot more to lose. Remember that I lost 50 pounds some years ago and now I’m making another adjustment that will last a long time.
What has happened that has made the most difference? I am absolutely committed to doing my three small meals a day every day. Because there were just a few guidelines for the program (and one of them is to forget everything you know about dieting) my mind cleared and I stopped having internal conversations about food for me and others. What a relief!
So, in this new year I ask you to become a seeker. Find a long term solution for your relationship with food. Take your time to do this as it is so important. It can be done!
In this blog, I will describe the skills that make a difference in success once you find your solution.
