Lexie's Journal

Lexie struggles with her weight but is learning how to trust her body again with Am I Hungry?

The workshops rock!
Posted on 06/10/2007 @ 11:00 AM

I just got back from my first Am I Hungry? workshop. As we left the meeting I shouted to someone, "I'm going to get some ice cream!" and another participant, whom I haven't met yet, yelled back, "ARE YOU HUNGRY?" THAT is what I wanted from these workshops. The interaction. For me this isn't just about losing weight and feeling better but also about meeting more people. Which can help me lose weight and feel better!! I could relate to everything Lori (Dr. Hurst) my facilitator was saying! It was sooooo good to review some of the things I had forgotten. I've read the book several times and I've started on the journal but hadn't followed through. I also realized when we were talking about the "Restrictive Eating Cycle" that yes, I felt very much "in control" when I followed diets to the letter, especially during the losing phase. But as weight loss tapered off, so did that feeling of control, until I felt like I was being controlled by the rules of the diet, which always led to my downfall...because "No one is going to control me I'm going to eat what I want when I want; this is stupid, I'm never going to have the body I want..." I have a very strong tendancy towards black and white thinking..... The only thing I wish is that I could record the meetings so that I don't lose all of those "ahhas" that zing through my brain. I can't wait until next week's workshop!!! (For more information about Am I Hungry? workshops, please visit:
