Reeonnecting with myself
Saturday, June 26, 2010
I am reading the book Women Food and God.
I have realized that I am frequently disconnected with my body when I eat. I have eatten for many reasons that are not hunger. I thought I was getting better about that. But, now I realize that I continue eating for reasons that are not related to hunger once I have started eating. It is an eye opener to walk away from the plate.
I am working to reconnect with myself and be more aware of my body. I am not sure how I got so disconnected with myself. I like that I feel more aware of it and I think that will be helpful on this weight loss journey. I am working to reconnect. I think this will make the journey easier. If I can just stop and pay attention to myself and even to my family.
I realized too that when I think about myself I don't picture this size. I think of myself as either much smaller or much bigger. What is up with that.
How could I get so out of touch?
