It’s been a day or two. I quit. I quit a lot of things. I quit nourishing, I quit writing, I quit sharing. So, in typical Laura fashion, perhaps we should ask why?
- I’ve been dating. And eating. And “celebrating”. And celebrating, historically speaking, has involved food. Lots of “good” food. And booze.
Of note. I’m attempting to change the mindset of celebration. Celebrating people and events. Not food. And certainly not food or drink that is damaging to my mind, body, and soul.
2. I quit writing and sharing because I felt like a failure. I felt I could only write, publish, share if I was “successful.” If I was the “after” in the before and after story.
Of note #2. Life is a journey. And not a linear one. We all have a story to tell, and that story should be of the fight in the trenches, not just the happily ever after.
To that end, I have determined to share my battles. The good, the bad, the ugly and the beautiful. Starting here.
165.4 (this is 40 pounds
up from about a year ago at this time)
Just a number. Just a starting point. NOT WHO I AM.
I’ve been reading a bit, and have found a little free book which offers 30 daily lessons and writing activities which shine a light on the issues behind emotional and binge eating. So, for the next 30 days, Big Laura is going to publicly plow through some life-long issues. 46 years of emotional, binge, compulsive, and addictive consumption patterns.
Because sharing is caring.
Light and Love,
