Everything I don't want to feel or think about or face - it all pops up when I stop my incessant mindless eating. That's why it's so hard for me to go on a weight loss diet.
And the very thing that I need to do is acknowledge all of that. It's what I've been avoiding. My overeating shuts it all up and hides it away from me. But I don't want to live a half-life. And I don't want to be afraid. And I really don't want to be a fat woman any more.
How to face what I need to face? I don't know, but I'm pretty sure I need to get professional help. In fact, I'm certain I do.
The "What problem are you having?" on your website is helping me a lot.
