The Moment I Realized
A Relationship with Our Body
What I know now that I didn’t realize years ago is that successful weight loss is really about forming a relationship with your body, not with food. It’s about honoring and respecting your magnificient body and all that it does for you. It’s about feeding your body foods it can actually use and keeping your body continually hydrated with plenty of water. I used to stuff my emotions down by eating all kinds of high calorie sweet foods. I ate when I felt fearful, sad, angry, and depressed. I even ate when I felt joy, happiness, and surprise. Repressing my emotions was the catalyst to my secret eating. I wrote about this part of my recovery in my book Transformation: Creating an Exceptional Life in the Face of Cancer.
