This is so like me! Thank you. I could have written these thoughts from about the age of 20( though not as eloquently) I am 58 and mourn that I didnt find Gillian’s approach or think I had choices much sooner. I think I have had many years of believing all my eating was to cope with the stresses of life and now understand the variety of addictive desire triggers and the freedom of knowing you can deal with them all in the same simple way
I think the older I get the more the choice outcomes are easier to identify with ( and the more how you look is really much less of a motivator) , which is great. Good luck on your choices Jenny and thank you for sharing your thoughts. It has really helped.
