Thanks Louise and Judith,
Both very inspiring stories. In general, I’d like to think about choosing the discomfort and the benefits when working with the desire. For a few days at least, I am going to go around reminding myself that my choice doesn’t just exist to eat whatever I want whenever I want, but that I have the choice to not eat food – a choice that somehow I didn’t think was available to me. All my prohbitive thinking is around this choice: I can’t stop eating, I always overeater, I have to eat when I see food etc.
And I love the insight about preferring running to drinking. I hope I get hit by a similar one with respect to overeating.
