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?

    This is a great eye opener. I just ate lunch and I was stuffed but I found myself starting to put a piece of celery in my mouth less than 2 minutes after I had just declared I was not hungry any longer. I took a moment, took the food out of my mouth, and realized what I was doing. I am going to try to watch my mindless eating too.

    You can reconnect. I see your awareness growing.

    Sounds like an excellent book. It is hard to reconnect....something that I have struggled with too. It sounds like you are making great progress. I have a thin body image too and read once that it was because our body image tends to be formed early in life. I was a bean pole and think that I still am. I'm always surprised when I look in the mirror to see a chubbets looking back at me.
