Last week I told a friend that observing and describing your behavior is like putting a red dot on the journey to health that says, "You are here". Knowing where you are is important for knowing how to get to where you want to be.
I need to draw my own map. I need to know more about where I am so I can choose where I want to be and know how to get there from here. I CAN get there. I can choose it and when I stumble I can learn and get up again. I will not give up. I will NOT give up.
Why do I want to do this? I don't want food and eating to be such an important part of my life. I don't want to feel controlled by food. It felt soooo good to go to my grandma's and realize later that I couldn't have cared less about the food there. I want it to be there when I need it and I want my life filled with other things when I don't need food.
I can accomplish that.
