Honesty Pt.2…

Relationship to Food...Happy Friday everyone!

I wanted to take a minute and thank everyone for the outpouring of support around my last post. I spent a majority of the day fielding text messages and emails that ranged from supportive to not so supportive. I got questioned on my sanity and my intent, as well as some not so great comments, which I don’t concern myself to much with because it is the world of the internet and that happens.  Ninety percent of what I got was people relating to what I was saying and encouragement. Knowing you are not alone is a powerful feeling and motivator.

I ended that post with a “I am not sure what is next” type feeling. A few people have chimed in with offers of solutions, which were really great.  Over this last week I have really been looking into what is next. Here is what I know…

  1. Writing that post was one of the hardest things I have ever done, but I don’t regret doing it for one minute. I am tired of having my self-worth tied to my eating habits and feeling nothing but shame about this area of my life
  2. I became an introvert because of this constant shame and lack of self-esteem, but those that know me, know that I am very much not an introvert. I am tired of hiding.
  3. I don’t have an exact plan of attack on how to move forward, but I know that I have a lot of amazing support and I promise to share my journey. I do have different avenues that I am looking at and researching, so stay tuned!

One thought on “Honesty Pt.2…

  1. I am so proud of you and happy you are my friend no matter what size you are. I think it’s fantastic that you have been so open publicly about your personal struggles and I will always be in your court about your self-esteem and health. Unfortunately, I don’t have the answer to your “what next?” but I DO have (and always have had) an extreme sense of faith and belief in you. You are too amazing a person to not get through this. You have all the skills you need to be everything you want to be and it may not happen overnight but you WILL achieve all your goals. There’s no other option in my mind.
