Thank you for these posts, Judith. What you’ve written means a great deal to me and I’m delighted – really thrilled – to hear that this course has such a broad application.
Two thoughts about motivation:
1) weight or non-weight doesn’t need to be either/or but both/and
2) my hope is for people to identify non-weight motivation in the process of eating less or eating differently (cutting down on refined carbs, manufactured food, huge quantities, etc) You didn’t do this course to do that – which is fine but I wouldn’t expect you to experience any of what I think of as non-weight reasons to eat less. You got a different kind of benefit from the course, and nothing wrong with that at all.
And yes, I do get that walking fells while morbidly obese would be a bit of a challenge 🙂
