My Weight Watchers meeting this morning was inspired. I have to say, that I learn so much from my community. They lend wisdom, empathy, and humor on this journey. They are a powerful group and for that, I am very grateful.
Today, a member shared how writing (Morning Pages) was helping her overcome emotional eating. Then she did something amazing she named it, she said emotional eating would send her into these “failure spirals”. This got me thinking about how she named this negative energy, and I thought about what we do under its influence. Then I wanted to name its positive counterpart and what we do under its influence.
Do you think about how to direct your energy? We all have energy and power, the thing is, I wasn’t aware of how I was directing mine. I have been trying to figure out what is different this time with my attempt to get to goal? I am responding to challenges not reacting to them. I am reinventing myself not regressing to the old ways of my past. I am learning how to live a healthy lifestyle – really it’s true.
This journey is about so much more than losing weight. It’s about becoming and change and that is really exciting.
